Um yeah just basically how I do my eyes, step by step.
Step 1 Draw lines. Step 2 Color the eye. Step 3 New layer, clip to first layer, set to multiply, draw in iris. Step 4 New layer, clip to first layer, set to multiply, draw a darker version of the iris closer to the bottom of eye. Use same color as eye color. Step 5 New layer, clipped, set to linear dodge add (luminosity for sai), draw circles for small highlights. Use same color as eye color. Step 6 New layer, clipped, set to linear dodge add again, draw smaller circles on previous highlights for shine. With white. Step 7 New layer, clipped, same settings as previous step, add sparkles! With white. Step 8 Right now, you should have 6 clipped layers. If you don't, find out what's wrong. Above the third layer, make new layer, still clipped, set to overlay, use a more saturated and lighter color than the eye color. Draw at bottom and top of the eye for glow. Step 9 New layer above lining, use white, draw some lines like what i did to do some final highlighting. Step 10 Use color a little darker than the darkest color you've used so far on the eyes. Color lines with your new color. Optional: Add a more brighter color at the top left of the eye and blend it.
Wow, lots of text. I'm horrible at explaining, so ask me if you're confused about something. Basically, the text is just useless things except that it tells you what to clip and the color and the layer mode. Derps.
Note, use this tutorial as a reference to generate a new style for yourself, please don't directly copy my style ok! It's not here for you to do that. I'd like to have my eye style be original.
Also, I did this in Photoshop, but I know it will work in SAI. Other programs I'm not so sure of.
I love this style, I love the galaxy feel it gets (for me anyway) after step six. It's beautiful and goes well into your style. Personally, for me, I really love it at six, it feels a bit excessive after that; however, I still really like the eye even after step six and it looks really good with your style. It might just seem excessive here simply because it's on its own and not on a full drawing of a character.
Dunno where it is. I came across it while looking at adoptables. I didnt stop and see what it was called. I just looked saw it was almost the same and went on. I told you after shopping for adoptables so god knows where it is. Not to be rude or nothing but your not the only one who has done those sort of eyes. Some of mine on home look pretty similar, and where made before you even put this up although Ive settled into a comfyer style that I like.
I never said its not original I just said something looked like it. Just in general so you wouldnt get upset if you ever came across it like I did. I havent seen many people just a couple, one or two including me but ai dont use the style. It was just while I was experimenting with other eye styles.
I never said and I dont think you are copying at all. I know you designed that stle by yourself and you worked very hard on making it look nice.......im just saying that there are over a million other people on DA who probably did copy off your style, take it as there own and carry on like that.
I dont want you to change it because your arts really beautiful
Im so sorry I really dont want to upset you
I dont constantly nag for art trades I have only asked a few people who were fine with it. People who said no, I just thanked them and left them alone. Its mostly my sister who asks for trades all the time. Also I have only ever asked for one request since someone had opened them. My sis asks for requests ALL the time.
You probably wont ever talk to me again but im sorry and never meantto hurt you
