Hair coloring Tutorial

487 Favourites
Sort of a tutorial I made about hair coloring... since a friend requested it and some people have asked me tips and what programs I use, etc... so here is it.

Then you ask me why I choose Aquila as the model if she has crazy red hair? Simply because I think there is already plenty of tutorials with more "common" or traditional hair types out there

Hope you like it, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask... I'm not used to design those kind of stuff.. if it helps a bit I'm happy lol

I did it in the same style as my ID
Phoenix brushes:
Feather brushes:…
Arcane brushes:…
Evanescence font:…

Aquila the phoenix: My character :iconfireeaglespirit:

This tutorial is amazing o: But i have just one question if you dont mind. For each shade/highlight you do, Do you do it on one layer only or multiple layers? D: Because ive tried doing it on one only and it doesn't look right.

Thanks a lot! :heart:

It depends, in SAI when I use multiple layers it helps achieving definition, since the colors won't blend with the ones under in another layers.... so if you want very definite strands make another layers, and when you want it more soft just draw in the same layer as the main "body" of the hair...

I hope this helps ^^ and yes, generally I use various layers, it is hard to draw hair in only one

They won't punish you for it, only when big companies do it for commercial use.
And if they do, then i'll pay you out of jail, doesn't that sound lovely?
