NQLE- Eye Experiment

Looking in to a good way to do eyes in Illustrator. Gotta figure out the colors, but I’m SOOOOOO Close!!! When I figure it out I’ll definitely post a tutorial set!



  • Distorted circles rotated and change colors & blending modes for iris muscles
  • Put a custom gradient with opacity over the top for the outside edge and pupil. Goes black, light, transparent, black from middle to edge.




Next Eye Idea:

  • Stars with tons of points
  • Distort, warp, bloat, pucker.
  • Duplicate, turn, recolor
  • Experiment with blending modes
  • Add distorted circles for muscle with drop shadow. Experiment with pathfinder and blending modes.
