TUTORIAL: How to color eyes on Picnik

 Hey! So you guys saw my before and after of an eye in one post and asked for a tutorial... well... here you go! I just now remembered I already made another editing eyes tutorial... but this one's more fun 'cuz you get to change your eye color! :D

*THE OLD TUTE IS HERE (natural looking)*

 {this is what we're going to do...}



{upload and crop pic if needed:}
{I use soften around the eye like I showed you here:}
{under create>effects>tint>hard light> slide the color picker to white. It should look like this:D}
{reverse effect and then paint the whole eye. Fade if you think you need to}
{Tint> slide to color you want your eye to be>reverse effect>paint it on your iris (don't paint the shiny part!!!) Fade.}
{if you want 2 tone apply the last one and pick a new color and do the same as last time:}
{the shiny parts looked a little blue to me ^ so I made them white with the black and white.}
{to make your eye pop even more go to: tint> normal> slide to white> and then paint around the edges. (it makes the lash line darker.) Fade.}
That's what we did :D
{clearly this is fake looking... it's not supposed to look real. :D}


this was the one you guys saw and asked for the tutorial for....
Try all sorts of colors! Purple actually looks pretty cool! I went a little crazy with this one...






Have a great day!

Your... er... eye is so pretty (both the real one and the picnik one :) ) I've always wanted green eyes... though being asian it might look a little funny. :{ Do you use picnik for your blog headers and stuff too? I have difficulty with stuff like that... I can make a button and stuff like that with tutorials (I like tutorials better than how-to's, isn't that weird?) but I still need help with the more intricate things. o(^__^o)
