How I draw eyes by Yellow-eyes How I draw eyes by Yellow-eyes
I don't think doing an eye tutorial was a good idea....if you try to use this you'll probably just get confused. But people have asked me how did I draw eyes, so here it is.


I use the dodge tool set to "highlights" for the glowy effect, and the burn tool set to "midtones" for the shadows.


This tutorial was done for Photoshop, but I guss it could also work for other programs...as long as they have burn and dodge tools.


NOTE: file is HUGE

Well, she has better things to do than explain(I don't blame her, she's a great artist and inspiration). Just try out different brushes and blur and smuge a bit, just hit the undo state change or open up a new layer, that is what I am going to do.

Bye the way yellow eyes, this is a great tutorial! As you can see from my 'not-so-decent try-to-make-look-realistic "artworks"' this, and your other tutorials will help me out so much! Thanks!

This tutorial has NO INSTRUCTIONS.

It has NO EXPLANATIONS.

It just throws you in the water. Sink or swim.

...but this has got to be one of the BEST DAMNED TUTORIALS I HAVE SEEN.

Working on a piece right now, and even though it isn't finished, the eyes are coming out AMAZING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
