How I edit Eyes by LittleBitx How I edit Eyes by LittleBitx

A lot of people always comment on how I edit eyes in my cosplay photos
so I thought I'd show you all how I do it. :)
--------------------------------------------
1. First I usually start out by sharpening the eyes to make them more vivid.
2. Most cosplayers use circle lenses which shows the natural eye color around
the pupil area so I like to darken and hide the eye color under the lens.
3. Overlay a layer of black around the pupil to darken the natural color.
4. Duplicate the layers until the natural color has finally become black or darkened
to a desired level.
5. Then make another layer, put white over the color of the eyes.
6. Overlay to make the color vibrant!
7. Add the color of the lenses over the now brightened eye and overlay to make the color pop!
8. Adjust the layers opacity to your desired look.
9. Darken the liner/makeup around the eyes to make them stand out.

I use GIMP, but it should work for Photoshop

Hm~ I guess this is a matter of personal taste, but I like the original more than the edited one o3o
(This shouldn't be meant as a complain though xD)

Thank you for the feedback! :) And it is all a matter of personal taste.
I enjoy very vivid and piercing eyes, that's why I edit them. Not everyone
is going to like it though!

Yes you're right, everyone has his own preferences =) Like I said, it's nothing negative and interesting to see other methods of editing ^^
