3. Color and Gradient style

First choose the color you want your eyes to be, I choose a gradient of light green to dark green. Then turn your blend mode to "Color" Then choose a pattern for your eyes, this will become the design which will take over the white area of your eyes. I choosed the pattern named "strings" which should come default with your Photoshop.
