Pixar Looking Eyes Issue

Alright, I’m a complete Blender noob and just joined this forum today. So, I’m following this tutorial on creating Pixar looking eyes. So I get the iris part done but then when I go to object mode and select the iris it also selects the eyeball, so that when I insert the texture of the iris, it also goes on the eyeball. I followed the tutorial to a T so I don’t know what could have gone wrong.

Any idea?

The iris and eyeball are the same object, but to add a texture to the iris, everything must be in edit mode with only the faces that make up the iris selected and texture assigned to them.

Hope this helps

That completely answered my question. Thanks a lot!

Wait, no it’s not working. I thought it would, but I select all the faces Of the iris and go to apply the texture, but it still applies it to the eyeball. What in the world am I doing wrong???

Edit: Nevermind, I got it. I just ended up making everything separately. Thanks for the help.
