correction; seriously? you’re giving me one picture which is very small and telling me that’s proof his eyes are brown. I don’t see why people contest my corrections so often like I’m so idiot or I’m doing something wrong, everytime I make a hair or eye colour correction I go to the effort of looking them up on google images and viewing images larger than 2MP to truly see their eye colour, but yet people still choose to disagree with me. If you want to get technical his eyes are a very khaki/dull blue with a brown colour around the pupil which would be the reason why they’re best described as green coloured and sometimes just look brown or dark green;

correction; Id say his eyes are a “greenish brown”. they definitely aren’t “True green” more like brown with green undertones

correction; his eyes are quite khaki and deep but their true colour is blue however contain brown tones around the pupil which spread throughout the iris and that is what makes them green, in his pictures they do look like a deep grey/dark green but neither deep grey nor dark green are appropriate/official classifications of eye colour, so therefore ‘green’ is his eye colour.
