Hey guys, here's a quick step by step on how i usually go about painting eyes ^_^

some facts: I painted this on 1 single layer, I use a standard round brush at 80% opacity with pressure on. i also use the air brush at a low opacity(5-20%) for blush and blending.

Used: photoshop CS 6 : )

how did you make it look glossy, starting at #4?

I'm going to take a wild guess and say its because of the shadow caused by the eyelids; that's the main difference I'm seeing from 4 to 5 (other than the pupils).

someone I am facebook friends with who is an artist is posted this picture on her facebook, claiming it took her 3 days to do it. This is the second time I've caught her stealing credit for someone else's work on facebook, but I dont know what to do about it. Here is the link to the facebook photo if you can see it.

Hey sakimichan if it's not too much to ask, could you put what you did each step? Because some of it is confusing. Like I can tell at some points you added shine or shadows or a blur of some sort but which one specifically would be nice :) It doesn't have to be like all the number crunching but just like "multiply this layer" or "overlay this" or whatever would be great. If not I understand. Thanks.

You have no idea how much this helped me today! Drawing eys with a turned head, when one eye is dead on and the other partially is such a pain for me sometimes...

Your pictures are generally very helpful with different perspectives! :thumbsup:

Thank you so much for this! I attempted to draw these eyes using your step by step guide, and while they certainly didn't look as good as yours, they were a lot better than what I usually do. So thank you for this helpful guide!
