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.

image

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

image

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.

image

Since the color is not that solid, add the shadow with base color.

image

Still on the same layer as base, add more shadow. Use darker color than base.

image

Make new layer again for highlight. Pick the skin color the add the highlight with pen tool.

image

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~

image

Above lineart, make a new layer then add some pieces of hair. Use eyedropper to pick the color.

image

Last, make the hair glow. Use skin’s shadow color then airbrush the area near the face.

image

Done~

Well, I hope it can helps ^^

An uncolorful giveaway banner so it won’t attract much attention but yeah we’re going call this a “maybe when I have the time and energy I’ll do giveaway prizes” giveaway. I’m not actually at 700 yet, I’m at 699, so I’ll say this giveaway will go until I get 700 followers, which could be a brief time or a long time.

So, prizes:

  • 1st place: Give me a yowapeda rarepair and I will write a fanfiction about it but it’s gotta be a rarepair because I live for rarepairs 
  • 2nd place: I will do a really crummy mouse drawing of your rarepair kissing or holding hands or interacting in some way wow incredible

Rules I guess:

  • You have to be following before/at the moment that I hit 700 followers to qualify, meaning that if you’re the 700th follower you can enter. 
  • Reblog this post to enter. Likes don’t count. If you send me a message saying “ywpd rarepair hell” you’ll get an extra entry. I don’t see why anyone would reblog this to a giveaway blog but just don’t do that I guess.
