Open a picture of an eye. I chosed one from Http:// ( a really great stock website ).

Step 3. Next we are going to change the color of the eye. So grab the round marquee tool , make a selection of the eye and on a new layer fill the selection with any color and change blending mode to color.

Step 4. Now here starts the fun. We are going to use 3d abstract renders. I got mine from . Here is the way that you use them: Copy them into a new layer on this manipulation and shrink them to match perfectly with the size of the image. Then take a soft Eraser and erase the parts that are covering the face.

This is what you should have:

Step 5. Now take another render shrink it place it on the face and change blending mode to Overlay. Then erase the parts covering the other render.
