How to CG eyes- Tutorial by Flame-Essence How to CG eyes- Tutorial by Flame-Essence
##Please Read##
I used Autodesk sketchbook mobile on the ipod touch, but for computer work, try and get hold of one of the following:

Paint Tool SAI
Adobe Photoshop CS2 up

I designed this guide so if someone wanted to colour in an eye they scanned they could. For a computer drawn eye with a transparent layer, always keep the line-art layer on top and use normal layers only to colour underneath!

Line-art for practice available here! [link]

For computer work, I usually work on Adobe Photoshop CS4. I'm going to thank you here for positive comments instead of typing in replies, because whenever I do i always clutter the comments with "You're welcome :D" lol :L

Hope this tutorial helps you all! :ninja:

I have a dumb question. My paint tool SAI doesn't have "Addition" in the mode OTL

Why is this?

In all honesty I have no idea. :P

You actually have more there than me because I only have

normal
multiply
screen
luminosity
overlay
binary colour

maybe it's because we need to update sai? I honestly don't know :P

Sorry I couldn't be of help...

Good tutorial, but for myself - I use only one layer for the whole eye coloring (with lights and shadows), but everyone choose for himself as how it more comfortable for him/her. :)

Thank you :) I normally do it all on one layer aswell (apart from line art) but if I ever use more than 1 I would merge down the layers afterwards. :la:

Yes, I've meant that as well - 1 layer (except lineart) for each object normally. But many layers for eyes...everyone does eyes differently, so the need for multiply layers are for everyone is diff. :D
