Creating a Realistic Eye

I decided this week I would do something a little different. I am going to show you how to create a realistic pupil. I have seen a lot of photoshop eye recently and they just did not seem very real.

Step 1) Open a New document 300×300 with a black back ground.

Step 2) Grab your eliptical Marquee Tool and Draw a perfact Circle within the document by holding Shift. Fill it with white.

Step 3) Set the fill to 0%. Open the blending option tool. We are going to add a Custom Gradient Overlay and an Inner Glow. Use the setting below.

You Should Have this:

Step 4) CTRL+Click the Base layer to make a selection. Open a new layer and fill it with White set the fill to 0%

Step 5) Open the blending option tool. We are going to add a Color Overlay and a Pattern Overlay. Use the setting below.

Resulting in:

Step 6) Make a New layer and grab your Gradient tool. Set your foreground to white and set the gradient to Foreground – Transparent. Draw a gradient from the top of the document to the middle.

Step 7) Go to Filter > Distort > Polar Cooridnates and check Rectangular to Polar. Hit Ok.

Step 8) Again make a selection of your base layer. Now cut the polarized gradient out and delete the unused layer. Set the fill to 30%

You Should Have this:

Step 9) Make a New layer. Grab your Rectangular Marquee Tool and Select 1/3 of the selection going fron Top To bottom. Fill with a Dark Pruple color.

Step 10) Go to Filter > Stiylize > Wind. Set the wind to blow from the right and select wind. Hit okay. Hit CTRL+F to repeat it once.

Step 11) Go to Filter > Stiylize > Wind. Set the wind to blow from the right and select Blast. Hit okay. Now Rotate the layer Edit > Transform > Rotate 90° CW.

Step 12) Go to Filter > Distort > Polar Cooridnates and check Rectangular to Polar. Hit Ok. Set the Layer to Darken.

Resulting in:

Step 13) Make a new layer and grab your eliptical Marquee Tool and make an oval towards the top left of the inner eye. Fill it with white.

Step 14) Rotate the oval -25.1°. Duplicate the layer 3 time and shrink each to ( 75%, 50%, and 25%).

Step 15) Move the smallest ovals to the right bottom of the eye and place the 25% over the 50% oval slightly to the left. Do the exact oppisite to the 100% and 75% ovals.

Step 16) Merge the Oval layer together. CTRL+E. Then add a 3. Gqussian Blur to that layer Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur.

And Your done.
