First off: Draw the eye.
Simple enough~ <3
2nd: Base Color. I choose blue, cause I love blue~ <3
Make sure this layer is below the lineart!
3rd: Set a multiply layer and use the marker to draw the "eye rings". Some people do this after step 4...
I also play around with the opacity on the layer to get what I want.
My Marker Settings:
4th: Set a multiply layer. Add the shading. Use water color tool to blend.
I also play around with the opacity layer. Also I make the layer under the "eye Ring" layer.
My watercolor settings:
5th: Add highlights.
I usually use about 4 layers set on Luminosity. These layers are sit in between the "shading" layer and the "eye ring" layer.
Oh this is usually for girl eyes. For guys I leave off the heart and the 3rd layer and limit the white circles.
The highlights include:
1 layer: A heart in the middle of the smaller eye ring. Tiny lines in between the eye rings.
2 Layer: Two lines on the outside of the darker eye rings.
3 Layer: Two lines coming from the side of the eye.
4 Layer: The white circles
6th: Add a layer above the eye ring layer.
Use whatever tool you like and color it in with a light color up till the top of the inner eye ring.
Lower the opacity to around 5-10% (it varies).
7th: Color the eyebrows.
I usually take the color of the hair and make it so dark it's almost black. Then a take a brush and add a highlight in the middle.
Color the white of the eye. Don't forget to do this. It looks rather silly if you don't.
And then you are done~ <3
I hope you enjoyed this crappy tutorial and my bad handwriting.
I told myself I would never do a tutorial but people kept asking me to do one.
So there you go people. o3o;;
Oh this is a tutorial for Paint Tool SAI.
Um....you should be able to use a similar process in other programs?
