Eye Manipulation Tutorial by SaldaeanFarmgirl Eye Manipulation Tutorial by SaldaeanFarmgirl
I am self taught, so if there are better ways to do it I really don't care. Also, know that it takes practice to do this. I've been doing eye manipulation for about a year, so for me its a piece of cake (if not the best you've seen). The first time I did it though, it came out looking like someone put on a purple colored contact.

I used photoshop v.7 at the time I think. With most photoshop versions you can follow this tutorial exactly. Other programs such as gimp and corel I've seen used but you'd need to adapt the tutorial. I'm not familiar with anything other that photoshop.

You have to buy it. You can get some of the older versions second hand cheap if you know where to look. Photoshop CS4 is the new version (and if I don't say its mighty expensive). Its a program by Adobe (the same people who make Adobe Reader).

They don't blend enough. More erasing around the edges I'd suggest, or else, make the part you color bigger and feather the selection. Typically if you erase a little at the center of the eye (maybe 40% opacity) it will look more natural. You could also make the color more multidimensional. Do what you did, then duplicate the layer, make it a bit different in color, and erase that to match either the outer or inner grooves of the eye. Don't do too much yellow or green, it just looks very unrealistic as you know eyes couldn't get that green or that yellow, etc. Understand? In Splash (the one I did for the tut) my eye is mostly purple with some burgundy in it. The multidimensional tone, plus some texture using highlighting brushes, makes it look more realistic. Try using the dodge and burn tool (very small brushes). Remember to mess with the curves/brightness, this will also help. Try, instead of using variations, go to Adjustments-Photofilter. Make sure the luminosity box is checked. That will help a bunch, though it doesn't make too differentiated colors.

These are all guidelines. The main point is to mess around till you get something you like!

Btw, practice makes perfect. Look at my first eye manip compared to my most faved:

first:[link] pretty one toned and boring
most faved:[link] red and purple make for an interesting combination. Plus, loads of detail, mostly photomanipulated in.

I loved this tutorial!

The last step I don't quite get but I use hue/saturation and for some reason they don't come out looking like contacts!

I'm using photoshop elements 4 and it seems there isn't a pen, any suggestion on something else i could use? (at the moment it's taking me ages!)

Ellipse tool might work if you can see most of the eye. If not layer masks would be your best bet.

If you don't need the last step then hell, don't use it. XD It just turns up that way how I do it.

Thank you!

Thanks for the advice! I don't really know what layer masks are so I guess searching tutorials on that would be my best bet! Lol :P

Using either the ellipse selection tool, and/or the pen tool. After right click make selection (for pen tool). After that, and after the ellipse selection tool, right click and layer via copy.

Well, I don't know what is a " ellipse selection tool "

And I don't catch this : " After that, and after the ellipse selection tool, right click and layer via copy. " :/ The pen tool is weird D:
