This is a tutorial of how I basically color the hair. I triedr to make the steps understandable..I hope they're. I didn't explain light source or even choose one as I am not the best at it and it shouldn't be taken from this that light source isn't important. There are better artists out there that you can learn that from. This is just how I do hair.

I want to add a note on the last step: I air brush with cold color for warm colors, and warm colors for cold color. That's why I used blue on that step.



Feel free to request tutorials from me on this poll:

I did make a chibi tutorial, but I need to make it less messy and confusing. I'll post it in a week or two.


I have another hair tutorial, a simple one:

Hey, in step two, do you mean this tool? sta.sh/01ifp9am1bw6
Because it doesn't work

It works for me. The settings are probably different. But it's not that important. The most important part of this tutorial is the Ol Water brush that I use for blending. Other than that, any brush would work.

What are your settings for water 10 brush?
Btw, in step 7, How do you duplicate the layer? And in step 8, when you add strands I must create a layer above the layer lineart, but it needs to select the option clipping group? Because if I do everything disappears and if I do not do it, I can't draw outside the lineart :/

Color blending: 50
Opacity mix: 50
Persistence: 70

Layer>Duplicate layer

I didn't say select clipping group. Just make a new layer above all layers and add strands.

Now it works, thanks! ^.^

Oooh I thought you meant to create a new layer above the lineart layer, not above all layers XD
Thanks! :D

It's a brush in Paint Tool SAI. It is shown in the screenshot in the tutorial.
