Hi!

Well, I'm back in The Sandbox, but this time it's because I need some help. I'm doing a vector from Nagisa Furukawa, the main heroine of Clannad, using this scan

The vector, as it is now. (The original is bigger, though)

I don't know how to do her eyes. I would love to be able to reproduce the "gradient" from her eyes. It's smooth, and it's kind of important for me, too, as it is one of the things I love in Clannad characters design : those big, lively and colourful eyes. I tried many things, but I can't find a way to do them as I want and didn't find anything on Internet to help me.

So, I ask : how can I reproduce the gradient in her eyes ? I really don't know how... and after 16 hours of work, I don't feel like giving up on that one. So what techniques would you use? Thanks in advance for your time and your help!

EDIT : Oh, I forgot... I use Photoshop ;)

I find that adjusting the opacity and flow to a lover level and employing the airbrush tool works well enough for me.
I can follow up later with the smudge tool at a very low setting to smooth everything out.
You may also want to increase the canvas size as well. You can downsize it later to improve the detail and clarity.
I hope that helps some.

if i want to make eyes just like you say... i use many layers to get the effect that i want ,
i've seen the scan and i thing it can do with 7 - 10 layers for one eyes , in that layers you just smooth the inside edge using smudge tool or airbrush tool and just play with the opacity until you get what you want
or you can use this style http://deamond89.deviantart.com/art/Coloring-Eyes-Tutorial-104218234?q=boost%3Apopular+photoshop+anime+eyes+tut&qo=7

Thanks to both of you... Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try any of your suggestions just yet, but should be able to do so later today or tomorrow. Do you mind if I come back here and show you what I will come up with?

Again, thanks a lot!

I'm back... tired, but happy as well. It was a long process because I first practiced on one eye, then once I had done the two eyes, I started over because I was unsatisfied with the result ... XD But there it is ... The result

I'll blur the colors later (after all, the vector isn't completely finished yet), but I was impatient to show you the results ;)
