MLP Vector Tutorial - Eyes by Blackm3sh MLP Vector Tutorial - Eyes by Blackm3sh
Many people were asking about how to make eyes, so hopefully this should clarify things.
If anything is unclear, please tell me and I'll try to update he tutorial.
Also this is MY way of doing it, so if you got another way feel free to share, just don't be a dick about it.

I used Photoshop CS5

When I make the gradient circle, it doesn't cut off like it shows in the tutorial?

OK how does this vector mask work? I clicked on the circle but when I click away it vanishes. I can't do anything to the circle. So I'm stuck at step 2.

This tutorial www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDhD5a… did quite a good job at it I think, doesn't require that much skill but it does when you try to match up an eye on the side that's furthest away as you have to be carefull with the lines overlapping the head's outline.

Thanks for this tut. It's really annoying if you're not so into Photoshop and you always have to find a scene where you can trace the eyes.

For some darn reason on Step 3 when I try to make each eye the Gradient color fills up ALL the white spaces of the eyes and I've been following your steps on making the eyes but I simply just cannot get it the way I want AND for some reason the "Vector Mask" option doesn't appear when I right-click on the pupil layer I make.

I give up, it's driving me nuts! Going to try a different approach, but thanks for the tutorial though!

The vector mask option doesn't show up in the ellipse mode. Create the ellipse with the ellipse tool, choose the path tool, select the ellipse path, right click and voilį! And remember to select the correct layer folder.

I can't help you, sorry. I'm not familiar with Photoshop beside the CS-serie. Personally I use Photoshop CS5 and some of the functions in mine might not be present in yours. So I guess you have to search on google to see if it has those functions or not, etc.

Sorry I couldn't be of any help :(

never mind, but step 5 and the eyelashes are the only things bugging m now. The highlights overlap the white of the eye and do I just use the pen tool for the eyelashes?

same method i use, excepted for the semi-rounded black shape (along with the last eyelash). i see you put his layer right behind the 'eye' group. well, i'll try this method
