Semirealistic Eye Tutorial by yuumei Semirealistic Eye Tutorial by yuumei
Lots of people have asked me to make a tutorial but I never had the time. Well, I found some time while procrastinating on hw yesterday to do a simple eye tutorial in my semirealistic Project WE style. I used Paint tool SAI in this tutorial but the instructions can work for Photoshop as well.

I will do more tutorials on other things later but that's all for now! :D I hope it helped!

I think the way you do eyes is incredible, even if the image is a low saturated one you make the eyes highly saturated and they really pop and leave an impression. I would love to see a tutorial on how you pick your color palettes one day c:

"Draw a basic outline of the eye" *draws a circle* easy enough.
"Add some details" pffft. Some details? That's like drawing an oval and then the 'some details' being the Mona Lisa or some junk.

In all seriousness though, thanks a lot for the tutorial.

Yea. I lack both the skill and creativity... which doesn't make for a very good artist xD But I can like color and follow tutorials made for noobs where you just kinda do what it tells you and in the end have a masterpiece (relatively speaking) lol

Well I tried but whenever I draw eyelashes they look horrible. So I never draw them.
The same with hands, when I draw a person I usually put their hands behind their back so I don't have to draw them.

I can draw hands well if they are in a fist or holding something.
One of the hand positions I hate the most would be a two fingered salute.
I also hate thumbs because I never know what to do with them.

People somehow sketch their eyes on an almost perfect line, and both of the eyes look the same, (and in my opinion, they look the same, but one of them looks flipped). Do you know how one goes about doing this?

:iconsalmonandcapers:
salmonandcapers Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, well you could just use the select tool, then copy it (if you're using a lineart layer you need to select CG or whatever they're called) and paste it onto a new layer. Then you can flip the new layer, move it around a bit, and tada! You're done. Although frankly, that sounds like too much work, so I just stick to drawing asymmetrical eyes. Btw, this is for SAI. Idk about other programs.

THANKS FOR SHARING THIS ^__^.

U know I love your style and your pictures. In fact I envy you so much u__u . I wonder what did you study to have this kind of job. I mean I would love to spend my entire life creating wonderful drawings like you do. Not because I think its easy or anything like that; It would be really difficult and challenging to acomplish the level you have and go forward to but If anything else I would have loved to dedícate my life to have this kind of job. But as many people I just went to through the path everybody does and have a common proffesion, I like it but someday when I got the money to train myself to do this kind of art. Could you give me some piece of advice of what kind of trainng or studies do I need to do?. Again thanks =) during vacations I will train my drawing skills so I hope to get the chance to try this tutorial steps. ((^_^U) dear god... what kind of stuff will I get? XDD)

I know this isn't directed at me, but I think I might be able to be helpful! I am currently seeking to do art freelance/full time in the next 5 years and am studying at uni right now. The first, and most important, thing is practice! I don't mean aimless practice (though that is helpful too) I mean intentional practice. Practice drawing from life (if you can) and draw from real images. Even if you're seeking an anime style, it's important to have a very good understanding of natural human anatomy. Use sites like posemaniac or quickposes to improve your anatomy. Read anatomy for artists books and draw from them. Understand the muscles, bones, structure ect. ect.

Now, all this stuff is super annoying/boring and tedious, which is why it's a good idea to take an actual class that forces you to do these things. Of course, not all of us go to art school ect and that is totally fine. Look into taking drawing or painting classes at your local community college or hoblob or michaels. They're usually inexpensive and fun!

My last piece of advice is learn traditional first. When I was starting out I completely ignored this and, while digital did help me learn things about color, it made learning traditional art that much harder. But, after spending a lot of time oil painting and moving back into digital work, you'd be amazed at how much easier digital is!

Ok, I lied, I have one more piece of advice. Keep sharing your work. It's really, really, really important to have an online presence as an artist these days because it doesn't matter if you get good if no one knows who you are (business wise, anyway). Keep up a blog, comment on other artists' things, chat with people, get to know them  ect. ect.

Ok I lied twice I have one more piece of advice. Do master studies. What's a master study? It's when you take a piece of a professional or considered an expert in their field of art and replicate it as best you can. This helps you learn new techniques, challenge yourself, improve color matching and theory, and improve your ability to "see". Now, if you choose an artist who is still alive, please, please, please ask the artist if you can post it online before doing so. Doing a master study and keeping it to yourself just for practice is totally fine, but uploading it is a different story. 

Anyway, I hope this helped and if you need more advice/want crit or tips please let me know! I usually have plenty of time to respond :D

Thank you very much TT_TT  .I really appreciate your advices. I like anime style, but I would love to be able to make realistic pictures, and as you said to learn about body anatomy, and not only that but to create amazing landscapes or architecture. By the way I study Architecture, so I would love to be able to express my ideas by drawing, but my drawings I feel their look stiff u__u , and at the end, due to the lack of time I had left, I make a quick 3D or only a model. But I have see some people landscapes and I feel so sad to se my drawings in comparison =(. That is why I have been looking for books and classes to learn some drawings techniques, but after visiting some places they told me they couldn't help with that =(, or they are expensive and unfortunately my family is not interested in help me with my artistic training. When I was Young I told my mother that I would love to study art once, but she told that I was crazy and I was going to end up poor and wasting my life.  I always have loved drawing and colors and designing, that's why off all careers I choose architecture, because you can draw and create on it.  If you know names or good books that I can search or tutorials that I can watch to train myself at least to improve my abilities, that would be awesome  ^__^ especially on the traditional and color theory, its kind of confusing when they talk about color light and color inks...¬¬ and how their combinations are so different when you talk about the chromatic circle, also the shadows and perpective freehand are kind of hard. It takes me to long to get them decent. yeah maybe I am kind of "derp" on the matter, but I am willing to read or learn about this cause I love it. ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH ^___^

Hummmm well you can find most of andrew loomis' (he's basically an anatomy god) books online if you search for a free pdf. As far as perspective goes, there's tons of tutorials on 1, 2, and 3 point perspective. This is probably the best out there, at least to give you an overview. I learned most of the little perspective I know from class.

Architecture is difficult and I'm afraid I won't be much help there as I'm primarily a portrait artist. As far as color goes.... BAH color is so hard to learn if it doesn't come naturally (trust me, I had to learn it). Basically, color choice and combination is something that will take time to truly master or understand. The best small purchase I made this semester was a little color wheel. The best part about this thing is the backside that has a complimentary, triad, tetrad, and split complimentary wheel. When dealing with shadows, I typically use a tetrad or split complimentary color scheme. So, for skin for instance, I'll use peach and then purples or reds to create shadows. Usually yellows or oranges for highlights, unless I'm creating a cool color scheme. 

Here's a few other useful links...
Adob Kuler -- An extremely powerful tool that helps you create color schemes. Used primarily for web design, but can seriously be helpful for painters.
Basic color theory -- Basically warm colors/cool colors, compliments, triads ect. 

What's so awesome about all of this is I found all of it just by doing a quick search on dA and google. dA is seriously your most valuable resources for being a self-taught artist. There's thousands of tutorials to help you in whatever it is you're struggling in. 

My last tip on color is don't use black. Ever. I mean, there's some instances in digital art where it's ok (like for and overlay layer to darken hair) but never use it as your base. It drags everything down. The reason why black is the forbidden color is because it sucks the life out of everything around it. When using traditional mediums (and even digital ones) don't use out of the tube black, create black by mixing complimentary colors. Usually ultramarine or pthalo blue and burnt umber create the richest blacks. The color comes out much richer. There's a girl in my advance painting class who creates space scapes and obviously has black in her paintings, but the reason why they come out looking freaking beautiful is because she mixes all of her own black. 

Bottom line, never use black out of the tube or eyedropper black in digital art. 

Again, if you need more help, please note me. Don't want to clog up the comments page haha. Hope this was helpful!
