Question How do you get a pixar eye look?


I created a pixar eye look a like using Ira Krakow's tutorial, orignally based from a blender wiki tutorial years ago.

My inspiration is going on the eye from the character Mike from Monster's inc.

I don't know what settings to tweak to get a less consentated white eye colour and the correct shine transparency for the pupil/Iris section.

When you compare the Monsters Inc image to my scene, the big difference is that their is plenty of light, foreground and background.

Nobody has given this a try here? Must be sombody!

hello You should write something else about this object and project.Not everybody watched this tutorial(for example I didn't). It looks like internal render. Maybe You should to render it in cycles?
I am amatour but I would say that you should google iris texture I made this objects in few minutes.If you want to have similar effects write, I will upload blend file. Eye is made from 3 objects.

Firstly,I would change the model. Why You have got small subdivision surface(Did you have any)?
Seconly,If I were you, I would say which renderer I want to use. If someone else would like to help You,it would be better if He knows...
Eventually, I hope you are not using blender 2,49. Using now that version would be wasting of time.Even internal renderer is much more faster in news version of blender.

I am using the exact layout as the tutorial explains, I am using 2.63. And yes I am using the Internal render.

I have four lights for the scene, so you can notice the shadow on the white eye, I want a little bit of shine on the white eye, very similar to Mike's white eye, but ultimately the aim is to get the shine on the pupil/ Iris section as seen on Mike's.
