Tutorial: How to brighten doll eyes

Hey guys, its the usual Aoibara.

I just felt generous enough to do some basic BJD photography (Though I am using a Dollfie Dream, but they are similar in concept especially with the customization) so I am going to teach people how to brighten doll eyes today!

This tutorial MIGHT be for beginners...Well, just know how to use Photoshop pretty please?
I am going to use Adobe Photoshop CS6 for this, so yeah.

!! Click below for moar !!

Simple. Open up Photoshop.

Next, open up your piccie.

We will be using this picture today. Thanks to my custom DDH-03 head Dollfie Dream Hizuru~

Set this thingy which is at the top right hand corner from whatever you have to Photography → eyehighlightsetup.png

And you should get a window similar to this unless you changed the settings:

Sooo...Set up is done, lets go on.

Use the pen tool pentoolplz.png

And create a path around the eyes:

...Might be hard to see :p

OK, right click with the pen tool, and select "make selection"

And it should make a selection.

Now click on any selection tools (lasso, rectangle select, etc.)

And click on this button →refineedgeplz.png

Click on "view" on the refine edge window, and change it to the one with all the red stuff...
And this ugly red stuff should cover up the whole picture except the eyes.

This is the refine edge mode, where you can literally refine edges. You realize that your mouse is now the brush to refine edges, so refine the edges around the eyes.

And now press OK on the refine edge window...

And now you should get a sexy nice selection.

Now go to this panel... → adjustmentpanelplz.png

And click on this...→curvesplz.png

This is the curves tool. Now you should see this panel→ curvespanelplz.png

If you held your selection you made earlier, the curve adjustment layer should automatically mask itself to leave the eyes adjustable.

Now pull around the curves in whatever way you want, and it should brighten up the eyes. Just find something which fits you.

This is what I did:

And here is the before and after...

After!

This looks so much better right?

Again, the doll I used is a Dollfie Dream, but I already worked this on my BJD SDGr Charles, and it works perfectly.

I hope this tutorial helps and class is over!
