"Colored Eye"

42 posts in this topic

Hey,

Moninca asked me how to make a colored eye like this:

So I decided to make a tut.

You don´t need any plugin.

And now the tutorial ;)

Step 1: Use a picture like >>this<< and paste it in PDN.

Step 2:

  • Select the ring, you want to color. (shift+mouse)
  • Invert selection.
  • Select the pupil, too. (CTRL+shift+mouse)
  • Insert the selection again

Step 3:

  • Add a new layer.
  • Use the colors you want and color the eye.

Step 4:

  • Make sure, that you have selected the ring.
  • Now use Gaussian Blur.

Step 5:

  • Now go to the Layer Properties and change the mode to "overlay" (optional edit the opacity)

Step 6:

  • Now select all.
  • Use Glow. (You can use your own settings ;) )

You can also make others with the same steps, just other colored ;)

This was a great way for me to practice using the Magic Wand. You should change the spelling of "insert" to "invert" in step two. Newbies like me might waste time looking for the "insert" tool. ;)

You can get great images to use from Flair buttons, already rounded!

@ Iwonderwho ... that should read British ... not Ingerlish. I know a few Scots, Irish and Welsh who would not be happy being called English ;)

sorry for an obvious question but I'm a newbie at the selection tools in paint.net... so how do I step 2? I tried to using the magic wand tool but that selected other things and I tried to select the ring and then the pupil but that didnt work... :(

Yeah I got a bit lost following the instructions for step 2 as well.

Here's what I did.

After opening up your eye image add a new layer, now use the Eclipse selection tool. Imagine that the iris has a box drawn round it and place your pointer where the top left corner would be, hold down the left mouse button and drag to where the bottom right corner would be.

Now if the circle is not correctly aligned with the eye then hold down the right button as well as the left button ( This allows you to move the selected area around to align it ) once aligned let go of the right button and increase or decrease the size of your selected region.

Now to do the inner circle we must move upto the selection mode button at the top, the first circle was made with the replace mode the second uses the subtract mode so go ahead and select it.

Do exactly the same for the second circle as you did for the first but this time align with the pupil, once you have done this choose the paint brush and increase size to 60 and start colouring you will see it only colours in the ring you made it doesnt matter if you go over the lines as it will be invisible.

Once you are happy press ctrl + D to deselect.

Now double click on the layer with the colours ( in the layers window ) and change the layer properties.

@minners71 thanks that explanation really helped!

Here's my result! I also softened the picture and added text:

Okay, my attempt looks a little weird, I had to do a few experiments before I found one I actually liked:

Can i just say that instead of using the paintbrush you can find a color wheel, paste it on a new layer and re-size it to fit the pupil and the set the blending mode then to :Overlay: .

Or To make a better effect, why don't you just : Gaussian blur: the colour layer with radius 2?

Thanks! I wanted the skin and the surrounding areas to look like the skin of a magazine model (They call them glamour portraits i think) but it didnt really work so I just softened it.

I guess you can't do it with dark eyes - at least not going through the exact same steps. I found this pic and thought it was so weird I just had to try it for the laughs (this is the orig -unmodified- pic).

All I was able to do was lighten the eye up (I started working on the left eye) a little bit to a reddish color.

This is a great tutorial. I use it to re touch old B&W photographs. The end result can be "hit and miss", but I love experimenting with this. :) I use the skin tones pallete with this.

:tardII:

Okay I'm new at this and hope I'm not missing a step or misunderstanding something obvious.

I get how to do everything except the Glow part - Am I suppose to open a new layer for that? My eye picture is not turning out at all like the other pictures in this tutorial :sad: .

For now I will play around to try to figure this out......About a year or so ago I a friend of mine introduced me to Paint.net and we played around with this tutorial and it worked. Unfortunately with my 42 year old brain I can't remember exactly what we did to get it to work.

Do I need to be more specific about anything? Like should I write out step by step of what I did?

thank you

Bring up the "Layers Properties" dialogue as you did previously and select "Glow" from there:
