Eye Tutorial - OUTDATED by twinelights Eye Tutorial - OUTDATED by twinelights
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.

This is so cool! I might use this. But dont worry! Not the same style, just my own eye style.

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.

Don't mind me.  xD

Ahh, that makes sense.  I noticed the change when I was looking through your gallery (I haven't been on in a while so my inbox is full of deviations).

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.

You make me want to block you, oh, maybe I should. 

Guess what, it's rude to go to an artist and say that 'OH YOUR STYLE ISN'T ORIGINAL I'VE SEEN MANY PEOPLE HAVE THAT STYLE TOO, EVEN MY OWN STYLE LOOKS SOMEWHAT LIKE YOURS' the fucking hell.

so are you saying that i'm 'copying' you and others' styles and i should change it just because what YOU of all people tell me that 'I'VE SEEN THAT STYLE BEFORE' 

i haven't seen anything that looks like this so i won't change it.

thanks for pissing me off! don't talk to me ever again thanks! 

also, i'm not the only person who've complained about you. a lot of my friends have as well, especially a few who you've been constantly nagging. for art trades, for requests, etc.

I....i...never meant to hurt you.

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

i just came up with that style like only a few weeks ago, how can 'over a million other people on dA' copy off my style in that amount of time? i would have noticed if so many people did. laughs

Well not a million, but like people made it and you made it and they looked similar and it wasa coincedence and then some people sa yours and thought 'thats a nice style, lets copy it'

I didnt mean that but you know what I mean 

I'm sorry friend 
I don't know what to do
I try so hard
to be a better person to you 

I screw up a lot 
and I ignore you too
I don't know why 
but I will care for you

you're my best friend 
I know we can make it through 
lets make this friendship last
and make it better and true 

I know your getting sick of me
I'm getting sick of myself too
I don't know how many times 
I can say sorry to you 

but really I am a fool
to let such a wonderful 
friendship break in two

I'm going to push aside the past now
I'm going to be nicer to you
and show what I can do

you're my best friend still 
and you're my favorite too 
remember the good times and I
know we'll make it through.
