This is easily one of the best tutorials I've seen on Deviantart. It was explanatory as well as funny. I'm definitely going to have to recommend this to my other editing friends. The great part is it works on a big picture too not just the one eye. I was able to do this with two different eye colors as well. I believe I will be doing this much more often. It's much better work than the eyes that I've been doing or even the tutorial I myself created. So I definitely have to give this artist my standing approval. Congrats to this amazing artist! Too all my watchers, those that do lineart, I say give this one a try!
What do you think?

im having a problem with the gaussian blur. when i do it, it blurs my whole lineart (i have layers) im such a noob at this ><

Dawn-Shade Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
make sure when you do the blur, the lineart layer is NOT active.
blur at the color layer instead

maybe it's your supernova settings are too big, or your layer mode, or bad eye colors.
you can always skip that supernova thingy and add strokes manually with brush.

wow, just 1 step from this tutorial answered a questions i had FOREVER

"grow your selection so the edges arent ugly"

i have the HARDEST time with making the edges look good in coloring--- but the answer was so simple! haha thanks to you i dont have to frustrate myself with that again!!! LOL!!!

Dawn-Shade Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, my friend also don't know how to color with fuzzy tool, he always select it with pen tool because the edges are ugly if you select it with fuzzy tool.
Until I tell him about this trick...

I got a problem with the supernova effect :s
when i apply it its all white

All white? You mean just the supernova layer or the entire pic?
Reply
:iconsaria48:
Saria48 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2011
not exactly, when i used the super nova in the layer above the eye layer (the one with color...) the eye looks all white, and when i multiply it theres no change.
Like if the only yhink i did was create a new layer where the eye is white.

maybe your supernova plugin is missing.

Check with this:
Create a new Image, fill with some color. Then, apply supernova there. Did the nova shown up?

Saria48 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011
yes.. it worked...

I just don't know what happend whit the other one x3

:icondawn-shade:
Dawn-Shade Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Hmm.. weird.
My best advice is: create the supernova on new image, then copy it to your eye. Or just forget the supernova effect and draw strokes yourself.

I love your tutorials <X3 But I need a little help with the supernova step. I have it above the eye color layer, set the mode to `multiply` n' everything, but nothing happens 8[ What am I doing wrong?
Reply
:icondawn-shade:
Dawn-Shade Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I don't see anything wrong..
What happens if you remove that layer?
What are your layer arrangement?
You can also skip the supernova effect, and draw it yourself.

I had it as Reflection for the top, then the lineart, then Supernova, and then the eye coloring <8[ I kinda gave up on it for now though cuz I like how the eye is as is <XP But I was just curious if I missed or overlooked something. Your tutorial is wonderful! :heart: I'm just a brain-ditz and miss stuff alot ^^;

Originally I thought paths would be difficult and unnecessary to use, but after playing with it a bit I realize it's actually much easier than trying to freehand it. I can get to the "grow" step, but after that, my fill tool won't work -- on ANY of my layers. Are there some other settings I'm supposed to change?
I think I'm also using 2.6, by the way.
Thank you so much for making these...

Have you tried other tools? Sometimes, i just use a supersized brush to fill an area.

LynnyLiz Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
Yeah, those work. I forced myself to play with the program more, and I'm starting to figure it out.... I have to say, so far I can't complain. I like it.
