Hair Step by Step

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.

Thanks! This helped me out a lot! Out of curiosity, do you plan on making more tutorials?

If I have time in the future, yes~ This is a very outdated tutorial, I'm relieved people are still finding it helpful even though I do a different method nowadays!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

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

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;
