Glowing Monsters Eyes at Night – Easy Photoshop Tutorial

This tutorial moved permanently from due to technical reasons. Ok, so this is going to be an ultra simple tutorial for making this image. It can add a lot of sexy and elegant yet creepy effect to any of your family photos, so since it’s a quick and easy tut I sincerely recommend you to try it out.

We used a picture of Amy Lee, so for a start you need to get some photo to work with, though don’t forget that you need someone with light eyes, it wont work good enough on brown / black eyes.. discrimination, I know.

You can take the picture of Amy Lee that we used as her eyes are really bright.

Duplicate the layer.

Select the upper layer, and go to Hues / Saturation and reduce the colors of the upper layer fully.

Select the eraser tool, very small with sharp edge, we used 5px but u may want to work with even smaller size.

erase the upper (black n’ white) layer from the inside of the eye. Don’t touch the white area of the eye.

so u will get something like this…

    Here’s my try at it:

    I didn’t want to upload it because I think the image might be too big.

    ALSO, while the tut doesn’t work with Brown eyes, you can allways change the eye color.
