Hair painting tutorial by Dianae Hair painting tutorial by Dianae
:star: See the final result of this work HERE!!! It's very different, 9 more hours have been involved on it to finish it : [link] :star:

I've been asked lots of times to do some tuts.... here's one of them, I'll do more when I have time ;)

It's not very realistic since the image has been painted very quickly (about 45 minutes) but it explains how to paint realistic hair if you take the time to add details as explained on the tut ;)

I hope that it can help :)

Have fun! :glomp:

------------------- PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -------------------

I've written "burn tool" instead of "dodge tool". The dodge tool is not necessary (I barely use it, I prefer avoiding to use it and paint the lighting manually usually) but it's a good way to obtain nice results very quickly and easily.
If you don't have the brushes already installed, you can add them by choosing them in photoshop library ;)
If you want to obtain realistic hair, 2 or 3 hours of work are necessary (I usually spend 3 hours on the hair, I've only spent 25mn for the tut and 20mn on the face so it doesn't show how far you can go using this method) ;)

I like the fact that this actually looks like hair instead of scribbly hair strands everywhere. Some "how-to-hair" tutorials that I've found will just show you to do strand by strand but I find that method to be tedious and no offense to people who use it but if poorly done, fake.

I was wondering if you could write up a tutorial for painting white hair. It seems to be a different beast than painting hair with shades of color as I can't find any good tutorials for it, and using the hair painting tutorials I've found don't turn out well with white hair. :(

Heyhey! :)

I was so lucky to find this! I mean, I drew hair before but it always looked crappy (does still, I guess) but this really influenced my style! Sadly I cannot copy it perfectly :(

Anyways, I've mentioned you here [link]

If you don't want me to mention you in that description because you don't like the way I tried to use your technique or out of any other reason: just say it! ;)

Thank you very much! :heart:

Do you know where I could get those brushes? I don't use photoshop, but photoshop brushes work with my program, so if you knew of a place to get them, I would really love it :D.
