Lightbulb I need help with eyelashes!! Pageant stuff, SORRY!

Hi All,

Even though I feel I know PS fairly well, doing the eyelashes is killing me, and taking me way too long. Pageant eyelashes are supposed to be almost too perfect, and yes...they are often on young chidren! Anyway, I have been trying to find a way to easily do them, but this is really stumping me. I do a great job outside of the lashes, and being a single mom, I really need this gig! Can anyone help? I attached a proof.

The way I was told to do it is to make a large oval over the eye using the Elliptical Marquee Tool. The oval shoud be just larger than the eye. Then, using the eraser, erase all, but the lashes.

See, this is difficult, and puts me in the same position as before, when I was trying to draw them using my tablet.

Thanks...any help woud be greatly appreciated!

Terry

Hi Terry,

Welcome to RP!

The only links I found about drawing eyelashes are here and here at RP .... otherwise I found a tutorial about drawing eyes which also briefly explains how to draw eyelashes here ..

Hope this can help...

Maybe make a brush shaped like a lash and use it as a stamp??
Attached are 2 samples of my brushes. They are actually blades of grass.

Thanks Kiska!

Since I am a bit of a newbie, can you explain how I use the grass brush stamp? How do I make it curve?

Hi again,

you can flip the direction of your brushes from your Brushes Palette dialog box (see attachment)

Flora, thanks for finishing up for me. I know how you have such fun posting attachments.
Tayconkel, If you just need a slight angle adjustment, not a flip, you can use the circle next to the 'x' and 'y'. Add lashes on new layer above image so you can erase what's not needed.

...me again...

Hi Kiska!

thank you!

Terry,

I've never done this before ... (I actually disagree with the 'Pageant stuff', but I understand having to do a job....) soooo, it's far from good, but here is what I did:
  • Created a new empty Layer on top of the background.
  • Tweaked the brushes settings (in the Brushes Palette...You can actually change anything you want from there!) until I got a brush I could use.
  • Drew the eyelashes.
  • Duplicated the eyelashes Layer, selected it, flipped it horizontally, moved it on the other eye and adjusted it to it.

Hope this helps...

:wavey:
In PS7, it appears that the Flip X and Flip Y check boxes no longer exist. Is it still possible to flip the direction of the brushes?

I have CS, where I can flip. The only thing i can think of is to stamp one blade of grass on a white background. Go to> Edit>Transform>Flip horizontal. Then> Edit>Define brush preset. You will then have 2 blades of grass facing in opposite direction. You can then use the circle with the arrow to change the angle as needed.
