How to color Anime Eyes by ReiRobin How to color Anime Eyes by ReiRobin
Many people have been asking me for a tutorial, especially for the eyes... Well I am brave enough to make one for anime, not realism though, cause I'm still learning haha~

Well, hope you guys like this tutorial, if there is any mistake please tell me - so I can correct them!

Thank you very much!
Download for big, clearer, awesome view of the tutorial!


other useful note:
You can do vice versa on the eyeball and lashes highlights too, eyeball reflecting white light from the lashes, I always use that technique and I love the effect!

(though it's not that obvious but still small details are very important to me~ haha)

Awesome! I found that if you use SAI instead of using hard light, you can just use luminosity, and it looks almost exactly the same! This helped me so much thank you~

Use PaintToolSAI its free but its kinda complicated, I learned how to use it from tutorials on YouTube.

I think each program has its own advantages; Photoshop has this neat tool called the pen tool and you can carefully plan the curves of the line before actually making them into line art. This best part is that you could control the thickness of the lines so it will look similar to a tablet's painting with pressure.
