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.

If I have time in the future, yes~ This is a very outdated tutorial, I'm relieved people are still finding it helpful even though I do a different method nowadays! ;7;

Maybe I'm just having a hard time tonight, but it's not all that clear for me. To show your brush settings would help greatly, cause mine are different and don't do the same blurring effects etc. But looks good

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.
