Hair Step by Step by Byakurin Hair Step by Step by Byakurin
Eh, is it clear/good enough to be considered a tutorial? You tell me. I used an old lineart because doing her hair is fun...don't shoot me.

If you want to practice using that ugly lineart then by all means, go ahead! But please don't claim it as yours and we're all good, ok? C:

Anyways, people ask me a lot about how I do hair, and here it is. I hope you like it ;-;

I am NOT in any way saying this is the best/only/more useful way to do hair, but it's my process.

I'm a non-clean-lineart specialist too, and seeing how good looking your final image is, that give me some hope! TvT9
Thank you so much!

This was made for SAI, but I suppose it could work with FA if you adjust your settings similarly, although I do not know of FA's tools ;u;

thank you so much!

Hair in digital media was challenging to me-- does the skin work in a similar manner? With the luminosity? I see people use burn and dodge as well.

also, for your lines-- do you draw first on paper, scan, and then trace the art in sai?

I guess the skin could work similarly <:

And no, I just draw it straight on my computer.

I <3 you.

I'm going to try this!.. when I get motivated again. ;~;
I actually got a little discouraged from using my tablet because
when I was switching around the line art layer to go above the
base colour layer, I didn't check to see if it still kept me on the base,
so I ended up filling every nook and cranny of the girls hair [she had a lot omg]
and then I saw... that I coloured in line art.

-forever sobbing-

You use SAI though, right? Would it be much different from PSE 10?

:iconbyakurin:
Byakurin Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

And I'm not sure, because SAI has this stabilizer tool and it makes everything look more smooth, and photoshop doesn't have it /:
