Painting Hair Tutorial
I’m sorry for the late reply >.< too much assignment this semester.
anyway thank you so much for dropping by XD
well, if you said yours is still looking flat maybe you need to add more darker color. or maybe you didn’t add the lighting?
just look at this. the left one I didn’t add the lighting there, but the right one I added some lighting there.
the right one looks better, right? yeah lighting makes your drawing more alive
I have different way of coloring tho. It’s easier to determine the light source using this method.
So, I used skin color as base color. Actually, it depends on the color scheme, but when the background is white I used skin color
Then choose the base color. Make new layer-clip-determine the light source- then paint it. Leave the area that got more light uncolored. Use brush with 60-100% min size to make the color soft. And 30-50% opacity mix.
Since the color is not that solid, add the shadow with base color.
Still on the same layer as base, add more shadow. Use darker color than base.
Make new layer again for highlight. Pick the skin color the add the highlight with pen tool.
You can see, it still not looks good there. There are some area that should be darker. So, add more shadow. Use darker color than the shade color. If you need to blend the color, blend it~
Above lineart, make a new layer then add some pieces of hair. Use eyedropper to pick the color.
Last, make the hair glow. Use skin’s shadow color then airbrush the area near the face.
Well, I hope it can helps ^^
