| | Recoloring Eyes--GIMP tutorial.
Step 1. Open a file (a picture of an eye). It doesn't have to be just a picture of an eye, it could be a picture of a character or animal.
Step 2. Desaturate your picture. Colors>>Desaturate>>OK (skip this step if you're using a character)
Step 3. Duplicate your layer. It's the fourth button in the layers dialogue:
Step 4. Set your top layer to multiply:
Step 5. Add a new layer (first button):
Make sure your new layer is on the top.
Step 6. Color in the eye with the paintbrush tool. Make the size pretty big. I'm using circle (11) 5.00:
If you are using a character, zoom in to color it.
Step 7. Set the mode to overlay.
Step 8. Make a new layer
Step 9. Set the new layer to overlay.
Step 10. Change the paintbrush color to white and color in the places of the eye you want to be the brightest. Since I desaturated mine, I did the whole eye.
Step 11. If you think your eye looks dull, go back to the layer you created to color in the eye. Mine is called: New layer.
Step 12. Pick another color you think matches the original color. Use that to color in a part of the eye:
Step 13. Make another new layer and choose a brush. I suggest downloading a sparkly-ish brush, but I'm just using Galaxy (AP) and Confetti which you already have. Color in the parts you want to sparkle, and then you're done!
