I love making these, and I'm especially glad to know that these behind-the-scenes or step-by-step visual guides still continue to help and inspire others to learn how it all works.

Any questions please feel free to ask away - be it the conceptual phase or how a section of the project's progress was rendered.

Remember when I mentioned possibly doing some sort of tutorial or something?

Well, here's a step by step! :la: It may not exactly be a tutorial, but maybe ya'll will at least find this interesting, if nothing else. :meow: I hope it's a bit enlightening too!
And finally, here's the actual picture, which was a request for NinjaKato of her thief character Giovanni: Break of Day by Kodaic
Hope you like and enjoy! :dummy:
P.S, apologies for any typos or errors. My brain tends to go faster than my hands, so words sometimes get missing or mushed together, hehe. ^^;

This tutorial was requested by :icontwilightapocalypse:!!
She wanted to know how i drew my galaxy eyes here:
k-foxx.deviantart.com/art/Name…

Step one:
Pick a base color, make sure it is NOT the lightest color you want in the eyes.
Use darker shades to make the "pupils"

Step 2:
Keep making the pupil area as dark as you want.

Step 3:
Smudge or blur to soften the edges of the colors.

Step 4: Add highlight dots a few shades lighter than your base color, but still not the lightest color that you want.

Step 5 and 6:
On a new layer, make a big white bubble highlight, then switch the layer type to overlay. You can mess with the opacity if it's too bright.


Step 7 and 8:
On another new layer, make a white shape (i used a star, it was part of the species i originally did these eyes on) and switch that to overlay as well, and mess with the opacity if need be.

Step 9:
On a new layer, take a tapered hard edge brush (should be one of the default brushes) and open the brush properties.
Tick the "scattering" box and slide the top bar all the way to the right, and change the control to "pen pressure".
Move the "Count" up to where ever you would like, here i used 2.
Slide the "Count Jitter" all the way to 100%, you can leave the control off or make it pen pressure if you would like.
Scribble the scattered dots over the iris/pupil area however you like. You can change the Scattering, Count, and Count jitter to your tastes, and also depending on the size of your picture, but these are the settings i like best.

Step 10:
Change the layer to overlay, and mess with the opacity again if you have to.

Step 11:
On top of your lineart make white highlight bubbles where you would like them.

Step 12:
If the colors are still too bright you can use the burn tool on the base colors of your eye, it will help make each detail stand out as well. 

And you're finished!! <3
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! :D
I absolutely love doing these eyes, they're my favorite eyes to do.
I use the same method of steps 1-6 and 11-12 for my most commonly used eyes!
