Invariably not.

You keep checking attitude indicator in center. Then you perform glance checking to other instruments and back to attitude indicator.

1) attitude indicator
2) vertical velocity indicator
3) attitude indicator
4) speed indicator
5) attitude indicator
6) Heading indicator
7) attitude indicator
vertical velocity indicator
.........

And you repeat doing that through the flight.

In hovering the Hover and low speed indicator allows you stay in hover even in zero visibility, and you start to look four main instruments then, attitude, vertical speed, hover and low speed, heading. And then you check radar altitude depending your altitude.

You will have very nice peripheral vision to outside in Mi-8, better than any other helicopter because you have a window tiles as your mark to outside, unlike UH-1H or Gazelle, where you don't have a such visual grid to see easily how your attitude changes without focusing there.

Further to this excellent post, dial 11 is top of the pops and virtually right in your line of sight..... The Doppler velocity indicator comes to life at and below 50Km/H..... just as you push the airframe out of transitional lift (free lift from forward velocity) and is announced both aurally from the sim sound of shaking and if you have a jet seat through excessive vibration through your arse and spine!
The vibration and sound is simply to tell you that loss of transitional lift is starting to happen and your current collective setting will "soon" not be sufficient to maintain altitude. As Dial 11 drops its line below 50 KM/h the steam gauge directly below it (dial 12) becomes God oh F%$king mighty!
The VVI (VSI). Vertical Velocity Indicator (Vertical Speed Indicator).

In the Kamov Ka-50 it is just below and left of the HUD.... it is a critical piece of kit! Its placement is testament to that.
If it ain't read right, then you are in for a whole new world of pain!
Because once you allow this heavy weight to drop into VRS, like the hind that is coming, she will push her entire weight into VRS and this is what most pilots are unsuccessful at fighting!

I doubt it's actually VRS, different kettle of fish so to say, if you allow vertical descent to exceed available power, it's just bad piloting, look at your charts.

Oh and it's translational lift.

And it's not "soon" you need to preempt it, well everything, don't fly in the now fly in the future.
