AWWWW that's actually really sad to me, I'm sorry you were mislead by that artist into thinking it was real. It's not, but at least now you know how they did it!

I remember when I first made an account on dA, must have been around 5-7 years ago, there was a rule in the ToS against submitting "eye porn"... I've double checked, and they seem to have removed that rule now. Thank you for submitting this, honestly. I understand if people just want to look at pretty eyes all the time, I think they're pretty too (occasionally) but they bump art that took hours of effort off the front page in place of something that can be done in 5 minutes or less.

And the people that think you made this in support of eye porn rather than opposing it gave me a good laugh!

Woah really? i never knew there was a rule like that XD. I didn't know it was called "eye porn" too hahha. It seems like eyes have always been in, but i've only been around for like two years XD

and lol yea i dunno how to respond to people who are actually thankful or something >_>

I've only seen one post where you say it was editted, can you show me where else you tell people who ask?

When you upload it to traditional art and you don't say you edited it you are implying it's done by hand only. Upload it to mixed media (or digital since it's the only reason people care) next time?

What always strikes me the most is when they color over the white parts with the white brush, with the grain of the photo quality visible everywhere elsewhere.

I also find it utterly funny when a bunch of people go "you're offensive it must be fully traditional". Oh, I've seen so many color/luminosty layers. And dodge tool-ing. Oh the pain.

:iconshattered-earth:
Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013   Digital Artist
Not only is the grain obscured, the fact that one side of the page is lighter and one is darker is not present in those white parts as well, since even if it were white-out/gesso (which could be lighter than paper and not show much grain), it would still obey the over all lighting rules LOL

Seriously, that one guy going around saying IT COULD STILL BE TRADITIONAL is really trying to lie to himself for some reason xD

DayanDeVarlo Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013
:'D I don't get it why though. I've painted over photos before and called them "painting over photos", and I colored over my pencil lineart and called it "mixed media". There's bound to be a bunch of people around who see through the mess anyways :B

I dunno. The fact you did those solely for pageviews or to make front page bothers me slightly. I'm sure I'll get over it :)

you mean, like ink/gel that emits light? yeah such liquids exist, but I'm afraid they are highly toxic :I

ryky's eyes are enhanced in Photoshop, there's no further magic.
