Coloring Eyes in Photoshop by mree Coloring Eyes in Photoshop by mree
I received a couple of notes about how to color eyes after this deviation: [link] , and since I was planning on making a set of tutorials anyway, I thought this should be a good one to start off with. :) Note: You should at least have a basic understanding of Photoshop, and know what layers are. Here, I am using Adobe Photoshop CS2, but all of the tools and options used should be in Photoshop 5.0-7.0.

Also, I've finally figured out how to get the dAmn chatrooms (no pun intended! O_O; ) to show up on my desktop. Apparently, I had some sort of firewall that was preventing it from loading...........anyway, if you'd like to ask me questions about this tutorial or about *any* topic in Photoshop, I will be in the #pstutorials chatroom for this on Monday, February 20th 2006, at 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (that's Los Angeles time, btw). I hope you find this somewhat helpful! :heart: :heart:

(More tutorials are coming on how to color hair and skin in Photoshop.)

here's a note... when working with bright eyes, put the burn tool on Highlights and the Dodge tool on Midtones...

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS

This really helped me.
.w. Never been the one to try and do realistic like eyes, and wanted to try this on something new.
I changed a few things to make it work in Paint Tool Sai. Still came out great for a first time try even in sai. <3

This is really great! I tried it, and I love the effect; is it supposed to take a really long time to achieve what you did here, or am I doing something wrong?

Nice Tut, thank you! I learned many things. But why you donīt use hard brushes? Only soft brushes make a drawing/painting blurry. ;)
