People asked, so here's the technique I use. :shrug: I'm not really the best when it comes to light source btw, so if you want to do that better, look at actual photos of hair and mimic.
Also, you can apply this technique to any program, really, not just Opencanvas. (Here's my Opencanvas tutorial by the way)

Sometimes people use pen/bezier but that's sucking the fun right out of it lol.
And as you can see by a lot of the examples on here, you can tell I still need to work majorly on hair too :U

Hi there! I don't really make tutorials anymore but I will link you to a couple that come up on a quick 'braid tutorial' search, hopefully they are helpful to you as well.

Sorry for my late reply. I am unsure of how to apply these techniques to corel painter, as I have never used the program; I am sure there are other tutorials out there that are much more specific and thorough for your aims, however.

Love the tutorial especially the layered hair! I thought it was beautiful. I plan on practicing with my style over the next few months and doing lots and lots of experimenting as i get time.
