People keep asking me about how I paint eyes, lips, hair and textures in general so here is the first of the series that I'm about to create.
It's the first time that I create a video tutorial and use a movie maker, plus, my pc experiences several issues so please forgive my mistakes (the typos are from tiredness and I saw them when it was too late :/ ). If you have any questions about the tutorial, please feel free to ask!
I created this tutorial in 12 hours approximately. Introduction:
My tutorial is about how to paint a realistic eye in photoshop in my way of working regarding texturing / nailing / refining/ colors / shadows / lights. The goal of this tutorial is giving you ideas about your painting styles and inspire you of making a good, good practicing. Because practice makes perfect and never stops.
Now, before you watch this tutorial, I would highly suggest you practice with your brushes and test them in several modes, opacity and colors. Also, test them over other colors, for example, see what effect has a dark brown color on a beize one, in different brushes (yes, even the ones that give texture-effects), brush modes and opacities
) The brushes I used for skin textures come from
and the carcoal brush for the shadow on the eyelid is an accustomed brush which comes along with photoshop
Also, it is needed you have knowledge of how Photoshop works.
Remeber that brushes for texturing, can have more than one usage. For example, I use a lot the dust brush, the one with small dots inside, for achieving the texture of leather, or add small lights on lips, skin or dust
Let your imagination free and experiment with Photoshop tools!
Also, listen to music that speaks to your heart and summons your Muse (aka inspiration). A total must when I paint. (I didn't insert inspirational music / the music I hear while painting in my video due to copyrights but you can always squeeze the mute-button
There is no need of giving me credits or something like that, I merely want this tutorial to be helful and useful to you and cover your painting needs. I am a self-taught artist and I can feel how important this is for someone who is trying to learn how to paint. However, I would be very, very happy to see how my tutorial helped you out with your art, so, if you remember me, just drop by and show me what you have created!
I hope you enjoy the tutorial and above all, find it useful.
Thank you of viewing and have a good practicing!
