When I create characters, I need to know what they look like--skin color, eye color, height and weight--or at least general build.
I find eye colors interesting.
55% of the world's population have brown eyes
8% of the world's population have blue eyes (Approximately 17% for the United States see here)
5-8% of the world's population have hazel eyes
2% of the world's population have green eyes.
(The eye color photos below are from the Internet, not my own work.)
|I have blue eyes that are a bit grayish so I'd guess toward gunmetal blue. I have two blue eyed children.|
In the YA novel I'm working on now, Freerunner, Thorn has sky blue eyes.
|I have five (adopted) brown eyed children. They are pretty much between chocolate and nut brown.|
In Freerunner, the main character, Kia, has amber eyes. (The first one in the box above)
|Green eyes are pretty rare, so it's funny that almost all the romance books have a green eyed protagonist in them.|
What color are your eyes? Are they shown above?
