Fully Faking Believable Eyes in Adobe Photoshop
Hi there. This video is all about fully faking and I will take the original image here. We fill out all the detail in the eye by doing something a little bit creepy with this one. All right. Time to get creepy. All right from your 10 retouching folder. Open up eyes one and two again, you might have to save and close the previous exercise. Alright, so one and creepy I too. And yes, it is what you imagined. So, I found this. I mainly because it has a full kind of people in here so I can use it for all sorts of situations. What sorts of situations? One eyes blinking, one eyes closed. One eye is a little bit lower than the rest of them. They're just really out of focus. So the previous two videos are just not going to work. So I am going to grab my quick selection tool and I'm going to select all of this. There's some bits up here that I don't want. Not worried too much about it. There's quite a forgiving tutorial, believe it or not. Pulling down the whole key or the option key just to kin...
d of tidy it up a little bit. Let's see what it looks like as a mask and let's go to select a mask and just tidy it up a little bit. Probably some feathering. It's going to be nice. Not too much shift the edge in a bit, smooth it out a little bit. Yeah, it's going to work for me. See what the radius does nothing. Alright, let's click. Ok, so this I now is going to be moved to this lady here, you can copy and paste it and just drag it in like this. It's far too big on a scale it down and I'm going to get it close to where I needed to go. Now. The trick is to be in just in one eye if you see two of them, one of them blew one of them not. It starts off creepy, This gets less and as creepy as we move along. I promise. I've got a roughly in position maybe a little bit bigger. Here we go. 10 working on the mask, I'm going to grab my brush tool. I'm going to be working with white with black and I'm going to have about that sort of size hardness is zero, but I'm going to lower the opacity of it by just tapping the numbers key on my keyboard, You can see capacity 30, 40 20 4, 42. So about 20%. I'm just going to work this bit at the top here where the Islanders and same with this bit here, maybe just a bit bigger to get these in. I'm gonna do the same thing for this edge here, it's just too sharp. The lights are hitting it the right way. So this lights cast this way, you might have to flip the eyeball over if your light's hitting it the wrong way because it might just look a little stranger than it does at the moment. Alright, and what I really came for is I really want all this kind of detail in here instead of drawing it out by hand like we did in the last video, I'm now going to click on my actual not the mask, I'm going to click on the actual layer and I'm going to work my way through and try and find a blending mode that works. We're gonna use our shortcut move to shift plus and just plus goes forward minus. Goes back through them too. Through the options. That's kind of cool, which one color dodge? You can see there less creepy, but we've got a lot of that kind of detail in there, that's maybe a bit more natural, but it's not necessarily this person's eye. Okay, I'm happy with that. We'll come back to color dodge, let's have a look what else we got with this work. Probably not way too bright. So let's go through exclusions kind of co keep this in here because there is a lot of just kind of going through this and going, oh, that kind of works but that one doesn't and in this case color dodge works for me. So I'm gonna just duplicate that I over here to add the detail into it, blending nicely with the background. What I might do is duplicate this background again. This one is going to be a retouched layer because I want to dodge and burn it. So dodge Clickety click Clickety click. You can run it around the edge here because these blending modes color dodge responds to it. Going to kind of brighten them up. It's probably not what I want to do undo. You know, you can and switch the burn tool by holding down the option key. Okay, and just kind of darken up these centers here. I'm going to zoom out. Let's check what we've done. Let's hold down the option key on a Mac. Hold key on a pc. I really like it now in this case there is already a strong kind of light cast. See the reflection there. If yours doesn't, you can add another one to just add another layer. This is going to be my highlight, grab the brush tool and drop down the brushes and in here there's a bunch of it depends on what version of Photoshop you're using. Go through and find like you can get away with murder in terms of the reflection sometimes of the strong kind of like light that's coming from a window pane or in this case there's a bit of a kind of a mixture coming through through the trees in this case. So I'm going to go to dry media brushes and I'm going to pick one of these, I'm going to use this one here, Kyle's ultimate charcoal pencil. I'm gonna have white is my foreground color. I'm working on this layer here. Gonna zoom in and I'm going to just add my own So what size brush? Yeah, this one here. I might lower the opacity a little bit as well. Actually the flow in this case I'm just adding these. I'm trying to kind of pick it a little bit. Do the same to the side. Not quite ready yet because what I wanna do is mhm. Once you've got to hear play with the layer mode again, I rely on layer modes a lot in Photoshop just because they're so useful for blending things in. See their enhanced it up. Is that different from normal? Let's have a look a little bit less. Let's have a look at anything else in there. Their modes. Oh I think it's a flight is the one for me giving me a different consistency on this lighter I and this darker. I you might lower the opacity of it down a little bit, maybe a little bit more. Alright, we're actually done. Now hold down option, I'll do an option or old. Give that last one a click. Alright. Some pretty cool eyes, They're not hers. Not all of it anyway. Alright, so that is going to be us. There's three ways of doing eyes enhancing it a little bit of faking and then using creepy. I they all have their place. I hope you found them useful. I'll see you in the next video
