Speedy Tuts: Hair

By Magweno
90% of tutorials talk wayyyy too much and over complicate things.

Half of this isn't even necessary. I was so tempted to get rid of the text.

Anyway, a lazy (wo)mans way of doing hair.

Okay step 1. Make a new file in photoshop with the above settings, 640x480px, 72 dpi
step 2. Draw some random blobs in the file with a standard black, round brush. Just like the picture.
step 3. Go to Edit>Define Brush Preset.  Click okay
step 4. Open your brush settings (Window>Brush) and input the following settings. Spacing: 1%; check the 'shape dynamics' box and check the 'other dynamics' box. Click on the little square in the bottom right to create new brush.
Then draw with it :) You'll find it makes sorta half decent hair. Change the brush size for different size strands, go from darker to lighter colours and when you're happy then use a 3px standard round brush to add some dark and light details.
