Effective Hair Brushes

MAKE SURE YOU READ MY RULES! alex-blaszczynski.deviantart.c…
So after a decent amount of trial and error i ended up creating some pretty useful brushes for myself. two of these brushes are my hair painting brushes. They make painting hair a breeze as long as you know how to use them.

These are free to use in both commercial and non-commercial works, however please make sure that you give proper credit.

1. Make sure you have a decent colour palette for your hair! hair is not made up of 1-2 colours!

2. using the Hair Base base brush with your DARKEST colour plot out how you want your hair to look.

3. refine your hair plot.

4. switching to the hair filler brush chose your second darkest colour and start filling in the plot you made with the base brush.

5 keep filling in the hair using the filler brush whilst making sure you keep layering lighter colours.

TBH i'm sure you will work out your own way of using the brushes, i just do it this way because that's how i taught myself to paint hair.

The cover art took me 15-20 minutes to do.
Stock used:
the rest is painted in photoshop cs6 (yes even the bokeh, it really isn't hard it's just circles xD )

If you like these please fave and if you use them please link me to the artwork you used them in, i would really like to see it.

:iconexcitedblushplz: A DD!! Thank-you so much :D!! Much happy, so happy that i will start releasing more stock and brushes :3

Thanks for the brushes and the instructions. I am just getting started and can use all the advice I can get. Free knowledge should never be turned away.
