Eye tutorial - an update by acidlullaby Eye tutorial - an update by acidlullaby
[link]

My last eye painting tutorial is pretty old and I've been getting e-mails about adding more detail to it.
There's like, a billion eye painting tuts out there, but I just wrote one for Painter Magazine so I thought I'd post the steps.

No words! It's pretty self explanatory.
Done in Corel Painter X (using digital airbrush) with my trusty ol' Wacom Intuos2 tablet.

Same principles apply in Photoshop too.

Dear Sir,

Sorry to trouble you.

I am 38, an Assistant Professor in the field of Fashion Technology, working in India.

​Right from chldhood I was interested in Oil Painting. ​
After seeing your digital art / paintings, I am fully mesmerized, and now ​I ​also would like to learn how to create drawings and paintings using computer and mobile  software​.

I have seen many digital paintings on Internet created by using programs like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, Corel Draw, Sketchbook Pro, etc.
I have done oil paintings of huge sizes like 1mx2m, 2mx3m, etc.

I am confused about which software should I learn.

I would like to know from yourgoodself which software provides best tools to create Realistic Paintings, that too with a Huge Canvas Size without compromising the quality. I want to take digital print of the painting at the end.

Thanking you with warm regards,

Vaibhav K Dhange

LEarn photoshop it's the most versitle program for digital drawing. It's not cheap however. Alternatives to photoshop are gimpshop pro or cheaper versions of photoshop essentials.  If you want high quality prints definitly work in a size over 3,000x4000 pixels. Most super high quality digital work is done at huge industrial sizes of 7-9000 pixels. From a beginner perspective start with an A4 size or a us letter size canvas. The best way to draw is to use a graphics tablet. A good starter tablet can be found on ebay for about 90-100$ it's a Wacom intuos 3. Digital work however will not make you a better artist. You need to practice and learn. Learn form learn color theory learn proportion and perspective. Best of luck

Given that this is like fourth time I reference this tutorial... I guess it's about time tell you how useful this thing is! Very much like it for painting semi-realistic eyes on occasion.

Also love how this tells so much without the need to say anything :D

Definitely faved.
