Anime Eye Coloring Tutorial by RuuRuu-Chan Anime Eye Coloring Tutorial by RuuRuu-Chan
Please keep in mind that this is my first tutorial I ever made.
So please don't make a rude remark about this.
I worked really hard on it and tried my best to explain everything.
I know it's a little wordy, but I wanted to be descriptive.

Anyway, people have been asking me to do an eye coloring tutorial.
I guess how I do eyes is interesting, or pretty... something like that.
If you do decide to use my method then please give me credit in the artist comments of your piece.
I just want to share this with everyone even though I'm no expert.
Also keep in mind that the majority of this tutorial was meant for SAI users.
Only the very last step is done in photoshop and is optional.

If you have any questions then please ask me.
I am more than happy to help you out.
Until next time!

This is a really good tutorial, but you can also do the glare effect on sai, all you have to do is change the layer to luminosity. (BTW the part about colouring the darker colour around the pupil was helpful to me) Thank you!

I didn't know I could do that in SAI.
I will try it out and see what I get.
I'm still pretty new to SAI, so I am still learning.
Thank you so much for the helpful advice.
And I'm glad I could help you out too. ^__^

Holy crap.

I really do like it, and even though I don't have Sai, I think I can convert it to photoshop at least a bit. I wanna see if I can do that xD
This was a good tutorial!
Nice job Ruu!!

Thank you so much.
It took me about 4 hours to make it.
I had a dream about it the other night, so I had to do it.
I wanted it out of my system! LOL!

I've always wondered how to make the Eyes look all shiny and awesome.. .-. Now I finally know.
It'll be very helpful and if I decide to try your Method, I'll be sure to give credit and link back here.

Only Question, does the last Step also work in GIMP?

RuuRuu-Chan Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Student Interface Designer
I'm glad to hear that you finally got your answers for the shiny method.
I hope this will be of use to you in the future.
As far as GIMP goes, I have never used the program.
So I can't tell you if it will work.
I suppose you'll have to tinker with it.
Sorry.

Paint tool SAI is a free program, that can be downloaded off the internet.
It works a lot like photoshop.
If you need the link then please let me know.
