  • Is this a digital image or it is on paper?

  • If it's a digital photo use to do it, or send me the photo and tell me what color you want the eyes and Ill color them for you, and send you the photo back. manipulating photos digitally is not an easy thing for someone who has never done it. Id be more than happy to help you.

  • Omg. Yes you can. If its on the computer, use PHOTOSHOP not paint.
    If it's an actual print, you can scan it and do PHOTOSHOP or, if you'd like it on the original, use oil paint, and q-tips.
    Apply the color to the area you want, and leave it on for a few seconds. (The longer you leave it on, the darker it will be.) Wipe it of with the q-tip, and you can even blend.

    Anon, if you don't know an answer, don't bother wasting people's time with "you can't". It's annoying and not to mention, for such a short, unhelpful, and useless answer, you could have at least spelt out the word "you."


    OP, have fun with it :]
