Painting eyes tutorial by MarcelaFreire Painting eyes tutorial by MarcelaFreire
HEEEY there is a very long time that I don't post tutorials on my DA, so since now I have +1000 watches (YAAAAY) Parrot  I thought about do a very simple gift for you guys!Thank you very much for the support, for comments and favorites, I feel really happy when I know that some people enjoy my art.
   I actually would like to do a better tutorial with videos and stuff but my computer is very crappy to record my screen, last time I tried it almost died. >:( So I will wait to buy a new computer.
Well, lets talk abou the process.
First I want to talk about the colors, I try to work with something in the middle of the Color Picker for the skin, nothing very extreme, usually base color is kind of orangish near to yellowish and the shadows are near to the red, but I try to....how can I say that... to change the colors very slightly, I mean the orange to red for exemple. This is the reason I prefer to do videos tutorials, it's sooooo easier to explain.

Software used: Photoshop Cs5

STEP 1 - Sketch... obvious, I know. On mode ''multiply''

STEP 2 - Base colors. I create a new layer on ''normal'' and I put it below the Layer 1(sketch)

STEP 3 -  New layer on ''normal'' again between base colors and multiply. I work a little with the shadows, nothing very extreme, just to give me a notion about the volume.

STEP 4 - New layer on ''normal'' but this time this is gonna be above all the layers, I begin to work on the sketch and we are gonna kind of hide the sketch lines, just letting the eyelashes.

STEP 5 - New layer on ''multiply'' also above all the layers, I put more shadows with a very smooth brush, and if it gets very dark, we change the opacity of the layer.

STEP 6 -  New layer on ''normal''. I do some brush marks, just to don't let things too ''smooth''

STEP 7 -  Same layer, I mix a little the colors.

STEP 8 - Time to put some light on the eyes and eye lid. Same layer yet or you can create a new one on ''normal''.

STEP 9 - New layer on ''normal'', putting some lights on the eye ball.

STEP 10 - New layer, make the brush option ''tablet pressure control'' (something like that) near to the opacity brush ''on'', I also prefer to use a more strong brush on it, but I also let the ''brush opacity'' on, you can keep it on 100%.

STEP 11- I fixed the iris it was a little crooked, all I had to do was erase the conors of the Iris. I also smoothed a little the shadows.

How you could realize, I didn't work on the eyebrows, I'll do it on another tutorial. I just tried to focus more on how I paint and the process.

Well, I hope it's helpful for you. :)

love these, very nice. You could buy a computer from amazon or online, it would be cheaper maybe.

No way, Brazilian system is gonna try to screw me in the same way, they charge 60% of the product price as taxes + the product price, that's one of the reason things are so expensive here. So the only way to pay less would be I go to another country(USA or europe) and buy there.
Just to create a picture:
Wacom - Intuos Pro Medium (USD):
$349,99
$399,99
Something like this.
Here, same size:
R$1900,00
R$2000,00
or
$603,00 USD

My boyfriend is from Netherlands, he told that he can helps me with this kind of stuff (eletronics that usually are one of the most expensive things here) when he goes to there in the end of the year but I'm not sure if my computer is gonna survive that much LOL I mean it is 10years old. So I think I'll buy one earlier.

Do what you have to. You can always take it back if you get a warranty.

Aw Thanks! Good to see that's useful, actually that one it's a little more realistic than I usually do I guess, but I'll try to post tutorials more often :)
