Hair Tutorial for Painter by joulee Hair Tutorial for Painter by joulee
** Sorry for the reupload... But for some reason it wasn't showing up in my gallery... O_O Is DevArt being wonky?

A much-procrastinated-but-finally-done hair tutorial for Painter! : ) Zoom in on the thumbnail to see it in full (it's quite large though... about 1.4 MB.)

I apologize for this not being a continuation of the Chi picture in A Digital Coloring Tutoral: Part I. Heck, it's not even in the same media. Somewhere along the way, I got a new laptop and the files from the Freya tutorial never got transferred over. So.... this is a new subject from scratch for the express purpose of this tutorial. : )

Anyway, free free to leave comments, ask questions, and I'll try to address them here!

The final result of this picture is a wallpaper version with colors Very Heavily Edited...

This is a really good tutorial, but I'm confused on the brush you're using. I recently bought painter X, and so far I'm kind of disappointed. For one thing, is there just a regular, nothing to it, general round brush? I see how you modified your brush, but when I put the same settings (or nearly, considering we have different versions) whenever I would draw with it, it looked like it was jittered just a small bit and it was really ugly, but the jitter was set to a minimum level. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you so much for the upload. It's helped me in Corel bunches. That program is hard to get used to. At least it was for me.

But yes! I very much like your technique and again, thank you very much for making this tutorial. =D

globunny Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007
You are my GOD! I didn't know you could use the Bleach like that!! I even asked Corel if there was any way they could send me a addition/dodge tool XD~ They said it was impossible. BUT OMG! You just introduced me to a whole new experience I'm going to have with painter :aww: Thank you so much!!!

Wow! I have Painter 3.0, and although I don't have some of the fancier features, it still worked out very well! You took the time to explain the things most people overlook, like the individual strands. It's really great! Thank you so much!

So... I found you on Gaia like... 3 years ago. And for some reason I've been drawing my hair a certain way for no reason and now I remember why! This tutorial has been a wonderful help for me in my general coloring techniques and I want to thank you lots! I could never find a tutorial in Painter...

However, I found that using the bleach gives a sort of discoloring to that general area and alters the colors a little bit in some, and radically in others.
liteboxxx Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2007
wow! thanks for the tutorial! :worship:

I have Corel Painter Essentials, but it has about 30 variations of brushes and types. Do you use a certain brush, or does your Painter only have one?
I love the picture.
