Hi there! Thank you sooo much for this wonderful tutorial! Here's what I came up with:

Big Vibrant EYES

Loving this! I'm having trouble with the transition between steps 2 and 3, can you do a video tutorial for that Sweating a little... (such a late comment!)

You made them so beautiful! AND YOU DID BLACKOUT OH YES!!!
Whenever I try blackouts it always ends up looking like white pupil/iris shape D: 
But this... This is excellent!
OH but one question-
do you have any tutorials on how to draw ears? Like, multiple ear types some round and human variety some animal ears (not just cat, although a pair or two of cat ears wouldn't be unwelcome some other ones would be nice too, like horse or rabbit or dog or pig) and a bunch of different elf-pointy-type ones?
i keep seeing eye and nose and mouth tutorials on dA but so far no ears :(
maybe I'm just not looking hard enough
anyway thanks for this!

OMG thank you so much <3333

but unfortunately I don't have any ear tutorials, it's indeed hard to find them! Ears aren't my strongest point, but I hope I can make a tutorial in the future!

Im still confused on to how exactly make the colors blend like that and such; Is there a detailed explanation i can read?
Dorinootje's avatar
whoops, submitted the comment by accident, but around 6:28 is the method I use to blend:…

so if you want to mix two colors, e.g. blue and green, you either use inbetween colors and blur, or you use the eyedropper tool like in the video ^^

If you still have any questions, please ask because I haven't written a detailed explanation yet :)

In SAI there is a watercolor tool and blur tool with which you can blend easily, in Photoshop you have a blur tool to blur the edges, but mostly I just use a soft edged brush/ airbrush to blend.

The eyes in this were made using your tutorial,  the lower one was my first try and the higher my second.
