Tutorial: Dark Eye Colors
This is a small tutorial I made for darker shades of eye colors.
In my tutorial I will explain step by step how to make different styles and shades of dark eye colors.​
(For the pupils I always pick the first option and put the opacity at 100, unless stated otherwise!)

Step 3, finished eyes and tuning:
Your characters eyes should look something like this after the first 2 steps:

If its too dark/light (which happens with some classes) try turning the opacity of the Iris up or down.
Do you feel it’s too gray or too orange? Try changing the opacity higher/lower of the Lens to your liking.​

Realistic Cat Eyes

Step 1: Pupils
For these eyes I used different pupils.
I used the first Pupil of the 2nd row, set the Area to 0,
to remove the blur effect as much as possible.
(Not the last one because it’s too pointy and doesn’t look like a realistic cat eye. Cat’s eyes have smooth edges.)
Change the size and width to personal preference.

Step 2: Iris
For the Iris choose the first Iris of the 2nd row.
Set it’s opacity to 100 and area to 100.
The color I used here was a dark mustard, 8th color on the 5th row.

Step 3: Lens and tuning
For the Lens I choose the last Lens on the 2nd row,
Put the opacity on 82 and choose the color black, first one on the first row.

Your finished eyes should look somewhat like this:

Tweak the Lens Opacity to your liking to make the details darker/lighter.​
