Some of you were interested in an updated tutorial.
Here it is! Hopefully it's simple and easy to follow. If you need any help, or have questions for me - feel free to ask! I will be happy to answer
I've even added a bonus to the tutorial - just in case anyone was curious how I make parts of the eye transparent.
I made this using Paint Tool SAI, but it may work with other art programs that use layers, a blur tool and clipping layers.
Let me know if it works for you in another program besides Paint Tool SAI!
Begin by selecting your "Upper" layer. Use the ink pen to make a curved line. Create a gradient effect with dark colors.
Select your "Lower" layer. Repeat the same process, but with lighter colors.
Use the blur tool on each layer to blend the colors together.
Same process, but showing how it was done with the other eye. Start with the "Upper" layer first then the "Lower" layer! Blend your colors together.
Select your "Pupil" layer. Make a curved line however you desire it to be. The girl is looking to the right. I drew my curved line based on that. Any other time I would make a full half circle shaped line. (EX: [link])
The left eye shows the before process and the right eye shows the after result. I like to make my curved line appear more "full" in certain areas.
I add shiny dots to the eyes at this point. Add as desired!
Merge your layers together. Make a copy of the layer. Hide the copy. Lower the opacity on the visible layer.
Erase parts of the eye that touch the skin. Hide this layer then continue to the next step.
Make your copy layer of the eyes visible. Lower the opacity of it. Erase parts that touch the hair now. Make the opacity 100% again.
Make your other layer visible and adjust the opacity as desired.
All finished! This is how I do my eyes, there are many ways to color eyes. I do not claim to have the "right" technique. Feel free to use this style for yourself
If you do try out this tutorial, you can show me your results if you'd like just leave a link in the comments~
mm, they do have similar hair and she is also wearing a slightly modified version of the dress Misaki wears. She's based off a character from the game "Dream of Mirror online" I was commissioned to draw her that way~
