S3D#2:Realistic eyes(EASY)+Slit pupil+

Recommended Posts

This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to open or download the PDF

 

EDIT: Use the Anti-Alias option in the Shape3D plugin.
Put a check mark on it, Set to level 3 ~ 4 would be enough.
This will make your "3d" object look much much Smoother!
Use this option for the last step as selecting it will make rendering much slower
==================================================================
Easiest eye tut as of post date :)
This tut aims to teach you there are different ways to "skin" a 3d object.
And how Shape3D "wraps" the "skin" for spheres.
And to make eyes like:

Plugins you will need:
Shape3D
Panelling Effect
Gradient Bars

Ok, Lets go!! Start with 800x600 image

1. Make 2nd color Alpha=0
Click on 1st color again.
(We will only need to change the 1st color for the whole tut, Keep 2nd color's Alpha at 0)
Use Black color :LinearGradient: as shown in image below.
(I have highlighted the end points with blue color and direction with red arrow for the whole tut!!)

Note: Hold the Shift key when using Gradient so you get a nice Horizontal gradient!!
Note2: Don't forget to use "Ctrl+D or Enter key" to "deselect /end" the gradient session.
so when you select the next color, you gradient color won't change with it.

2. Change 1st color to the eye color you want.
(I have used yellow so you can see clearly)
Use :LinearGradient: as shown in image below.

3. Change 1st color to black again.
Use :LinearGradient: as shown in image below.

4. Add new layer
Use Gradient Bars (Top, S=20, S=0)

5. Use Panelling (V=-22, H=0, S=1)
(Or Panel down until you can see a 1 pixel line of the eye color, as shown in image below)
Gaussian Blur (P=2)
Flatten image

6. Use Shape3D.
You can use the setting I used, or adjust away :)

7. Add new layer
Change 1st color to white.
Use :RadialGradient: as in image below.

Flatten image, and you are done!! :D

Hope this helped you to learn about how Shape3D works.
If you think about it, you can do much more then just eyes with this method!!
Have fun & show me what you made!! 8)

EDIT: Some more examples for you to see :)

======================Extra======================
Very simple steps the get the Slit pupil that everyone is asking about.
After you finished drawing the eye.
Add new layer. Draw a triangle like image below. (only need to draw on 1 side)
Then Dup layer, goto Layers--->Flip horizontal, then merge layer down.
You should have something like image below.

Use Shape3D (full sphere map)
And you will see the slit pupil already there, (assuming you still have the setting from when you made the eye)
You will need to adjust the X-axis maybe a little of the Y-axis to Fit the pupil onto the eye.

Done :)

But thanks!!

Everyone is going to spam your inbox asking "Can I make this with Shape3D?"

Starting with me :P

That eye looks great. My way looks more chaotic though (you could do the same kind of thing with your method though)

Follow the explosion tutorial, delete the crackled sphere layer, and crop it into a circle. Then, resize as needed, paste on a white background, S3D sphere and you're set.

Thanks, Ash, for another great shape3D tutorial.

Got a question, tho - when I change the first colour from black to yellow, my picture colour changes immediately from the black gradient to a yellow gradient.

To circumvent this problem, I need to change tools first, then select the gradient tool once again and work with the new colour.

An alternative method of circumventing this problem was by Ctrl-D.

Is there some step that I should be following to obviate this need?

You're welcome :)

I sometimes forget that step too...

I usually leave the mouse pointer on the Canvas (Arrow not touching any tool buttons)

And hit the Enter key. And that will end the Gradient/Line, curves tool's "session"

Thanks for pointing that out, I will add it to the tut!

Sticky'd.

Also, this was mentioned on a French blog about .NET and developer stuff, http://blogs.developpeur.org/coq/archiv ... t-net.aspx

Thanks! Cool :)

First time for eveything tonight guys first on paint.net. first time on forum

but just had to tell evey one what a great comunity spirit and the best programe I have ever used this is my atempt at the eye but I layered everything then used the cloud effect on the colour of the eye, so a very small variation but hey I dont think its to bad for a paint.net virgin

hope you will see more of my pics as the imagination is running wild at the mo :)
