Looking for good Asian/Oriental eyes.

Recommended Posts

I've looked through the marketplace and not found what I'm looking for so I was wondering if anyone can help although I'm currently at Ikon looking at their eyes. I'm looking for very dark brown almost black eyes and I was wondering if anyone knew a good place for them? My avatar is Korean but eyes that are Japanese or Chinese would probably work too.

If you can use "system" (non-mesh) eyes my favorite very dark eyes are from a little store called MOPY - they're only available on the Marketplace now.

btw main asian look for the eye is not the eye itself but your skin and head shape settings and/or mesh head

The vast majority of eyes in SL are sold by colour, not presumed race of the wearer.

 

Remember, there are people out there with "chinese" avatars that want "Jade Green" eyes for example.

 

There are far too many eye vendors in SL to list them all, and I've noticed that many of the more famous ones don't offer the same kind of choices as the smaller independants, mass market stores cater for mass market.

 

Try searching for "By Snow" either on the MP or inworld (she has a store on one of the Lionheart sims). Her eyes are nice, come with mesh and system options, decent range of colours and styles, including fantasy, cybernetic and alien eyes, and are very reasonably priced, she also does some freebies and dollarbies too, the Valentines Day eyes she puts out in various years are cool (the ones with the heart shaped pupils are adorable).

 

Edit: If you really must have "officlal oriental eyes " I can only suggest you look inworld for Dr. Life (a well known specialist oriental skin/shape  maker) or Heavens Gate, or possibly Tokyo Girl, who may or may not have eyes (and other items) suitable oriental for you, or search for oriental themed sims with small shopping areas, searching for 'geisha' generally brings up a list of 'traditional japanese sims' with traditioonal japanese avatar vendors.

Personally for my more oriental looking avatars, I go for the following stores:

 

s0ng

tsg (the sugar garden)

NiNi

 

Those seem to work the best. They have really nice dark brown colors and even some black. They work really well with oriental avi's.

Basically this. An alt of mine:

The look in these two was all about the shape sliders for the eyes, lips, nose, and cheeks - and using skins that had the right tones and some 'assisting' highlights and shadows.

The actual eyes there - are just brown prim eyes.

The key thing for the eyes for me has been making the inner corner go down, the outer corner go up, removing any crease/fold to the eyelid, spacing the eyes out a little, making them just a little bit big, and then having a wider bridge and nostril. Add in fuller narrow lips and high cheekbones.

Not an asian avatar, but I like Poetic Colors that has their store i Kusshon. These are classic gen4 - autumn - november soil - medium dark. You get several sizes and light and dark scleras.

And the asian avatar, IKON Charm Eyes - Coffee

The Poetic Colors have lighter scleras than the IKON eyes, even if you choose the lightest opinion on them. They are HUD driven, adjust sizes and brightness from the HUD.
