So... This is my first ever tutorial. I wasn't really planning on doing one but *Iseanna :iconiseanna: kept asking me to do one since she always thinks my hair looks amazing. xP So here it is. I hope that anyone who sees it can get something out of it. Lol.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
Thank you!

Does this work for male hair as well? Also, I can't find the marker tool in PSCS6.
Elerya's avatar
I don't usually draw males so I'm not sure but I would imagine so. For the marker tool, this tutorial is designed for Paint Tool SAI, so I'm not sure what tool/brush settings would be similar in PSCS6.

Are you doing each step in a new layer or adding a layer mask? So far this tutorial is helpful but if all of this is supposed to be done in one layer, I think I may have messed myself up royally.
Elerya's avatar
I have a bad habit of using a new layer for EVERYTHING. This was not done on one layer. Most steps are done on a new layer.

Do you use a different layer for each step?
Elerya's avatar
I sure do! Personally, I tend to use a lot of layers with everything. :P
