Digital Drawing Tips: Eyes (Photoshop CS5)

Equipment: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch, Photoshop CS5, MacBook Pro.

For our inaugural blog post, I’m going to do a quick run through of my preferred method for coloring eyes in Photoshop. It’s fairly simple, only involves a few layers, and gives the eyes a very glossy look in the end. There is a multitude of ways to color and shade eyes on drawings of people and it all depends on the tone and message of your particular piece. This way just works for me.
