Glowing Monsters Eyes at Night – Easy Photoshop Tutorial

Now to the interesting part.

Select the upper (colourless) layer again, and go to Brightness / Contrast.

The idea is to reduce both Contrast and Brightness dramatically, so that the face won’t be anything but a background anymore.

you will get something like this (feel free to play with the settings, depending on a photo, maybe you will need less or more of brightness or contrast)

For the final touch, select again the layer below (colored) and go to Hue / Saturation. We will add a bit contrast, so that the eyes won’t be that “pale” anymore, and will blend in better…

That’s it. Hope u liked this small tut.

    Here’s my try at it: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/47333354/

    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.
