In case anyone is interested in a reference video, this is educational, if not slightly disturbing.

A bit off topic: how did you light your base shot? It has a good glowing quality to it. Did you CC before doing the tut? What light did you use? just general outside ambience, a china ball, floros, etc.? I'm just curious.

Very nice tutorial. Very solid stuff. And perfect timing to.

I have started a film where I had the idea of doing the white eyes like I they did in Heroes and I think I found to solution in your tutorial! I think you very much for that because I wasn't sure how I would go about that. I was considering just key-framing a white solid over the eye and giving the eye a sort of glow effect but that would never turn out convincingly enough but your tutorial has definitely brought the effect down to earth and achievable. Thank you!

Hello, my name is Chris and I am an AnKraholic.

Andrew I find I spend more time now re-watching your tutorials or searching Andrew Kramer inspired youtube entries than I do actually doing anything with them! It's even taken over Family Guy as my preferred source of prime-time entertainment. (the writers strike hasn't hurt mind you)

Andrew, since this is entirely your fault, to help me get off my creative arse, I'd like to propose a friendly competition inspired by "JELLE" in Holland who reportedly created a film using all if not most of your tutorials (Love to see a link by the way Jelle)...

Anyone interested, create a short film using techniques inspired by at least 5 of Andrew's tutorials and post it on YouTube.com with "Andrew Kramer 2008 over 5" in the description (so we can search for it) and also include the techniques you were inspired by and where they are in the film (in case you did such a good job it wasn't noticeable)

And Andrew if you are feeling particularly generous, maybe offer a DVD of choice to the entry that garners the highest YouTube rating by a particular date?

Just a thought.

Why do these awsome tuts always come out when I am super busy doing something else. Cant wait to try it.

Oh! I noticed something you've missed in this tutorial!


Please read this Andrew!


The highlight on the left eye, should not be on the eye at the whole time! If you see on the right one, it appears when you've almost at the top with your head!

Are you gonna try to make a empty eye-socket?:P Cus if you are planning to, that would be AWESOME! Although, I have never been dissapointed by any of your tuts!

Andrew Kramer is back! Great and entertaining tutorial!
For making eye movements do I need a 3D eye or is it possible to do this in AE? Or will it be explained in the second part of the Eye Tutorial? O, wait a minute. I know, it's CC Sphere. Is it?

grouse stuff Mr.K. Thankyou.

btw, I know there's no need to point out your products being used professinally, as thats the idea of the products in the 1st place, BUT, an awesome little 3D animation on CGsociety has used and CREDITED VCP for the use of the sound FX etc... thumbs up!

Also, the new Leukaemia Foundation Ad here in Oz is acutally your blood-cell tute [which I find a poor effort on behalf of that "artisit" - i use it as a loose term]

anyway, thanks again.
gr8 tut andrew. i once dated a girl that looks just like the effect you did. and dont worry about the problem with the ladies. i have it too sometimes. maybe we could go get drinks and hit on strippers. its ok, i'm married too.
