Looking for suggestions for night time glowing eyes not those of conventional wolves wandering about in the day.

The most natural would be yellow the wolf from the scene in 300 has these. LOTR wargs seem to have yellow eyes as well.

Red seems cliche though I'm leaning toward this mightily.

What about green?

What says you?

Yellow

Oh red, definitely.

I'd probably go with red. Paint one or two of each, and see which one you like best.

Another vote for yellow!

Hot cool yellow pearlescent worked well on my hell hounds.

Didn't "Scut" Farkus have yellow eyes? "So help me God, he had yellow eyes!"

So yeah…I would go with yellow.

That one caught me off guard, Extrabio!

Bright yellow here. I've used a "glowing" chateruse on some werewolves. And yes, also IMO, red's a bit trite.

Whichever color you go with, use fluorescent paint… ;-)

Black, so you *don't* see them at night. I mean, c'mon, how evil is *that*?

Perhaps a reverse so a yellow eye with a white pupil. Or a black background with a silvery pearl white pupil.

I want to say just a white dot for the pupil to get that low light reflective look
