Fire Dragon by Lilyas Fire Dragon by Lilyas
Quite some people wanted me to do a dragon eye and so here it is. I used a photo of a crocodile and played around with colors and lighting a bit. Of course there are some little effects in the eye, too. I really like how that came out. Hope you, too.

EYE TUTORIAL

A couple of days ago I made a poll and asked you what kind of eye tutorial you want me to make: based on a certain picture or a general tutorial. Most of you - 27% - voted for a GENERAL EYE TUTORIAL, followed by :bulletgreen: Jade and :bulletgreen: Dryad. See here: :bulletpurple: lilyas.deviantart.com/journal/….

So I decided to create a brand new eye picture and take it as the base for the tutorial where I will explain my general procedure in using Photoshop with cross references to some of the other eye works. The tutorial will be my next big work.
PLEASE HAVE SOME PATIENCE since this will be an extensive job! Thanks.

The tutorial will be a collaboration with Tamilia

This looks more realistic than the 2nd one you made, whereas that one looks more mechanical.
