Painting anime hair...image file

And this is JPG DOWNLOAD VERSION. Click DOWNLOAD button on the right. It's JPG file if you can't open .swf file. :D

It's tutorial for Painting anime hair in my style. I explained how I do my linearts (though I never use them ;P) and how I paint hair for my characters. Tutorial have 11 pages (from beginning till the end). I used Adobe Photoshop CS6 for painting drawing in background (but that doesn't mean that you can't achieve same results in older versions). I hope this tutorial will be helpful. :aww: Happy learning :la: :heart: (if you can't see text well, then you can click download button on the right. Text is in vectors, so you'll be able to see it bigger). Tools which I used to make this tutorial... pages were designed in Photoshop, and everything else was programmed in Flash. I had 1618 frames in Flash, 500 layers and 22 folders. And I made this in 4 days. :faint:

Your tutorial is great! I started to draw with photoshop a few days ago (in combination with a wacom one) and have a question for you. How do you draw those smooth curves? Do you use the pen path tool like it is described in the most explanations? Because when I try to use this to create smooth lines they are mostly a bit edged. Can you maybe tell me where I can get the basics for Photoshop if the explanation for my problem is to complicated? You can easily see my problem here in my first attempt: puu. sh/dMtnc/ba61331137.jpg
Even with the path tool it is a pain to create the hair. It is such a time eating process D:

Thank you :la: And I draw lines by the painting part. I almost never use Pen tool and such. Mostly for drawing straight lines, or perfect curves...for architecture and such. Though I have few tutorials for Photoshop beginners in my folder here (where it says Photoshop basics tutorial) :D

Though is there a way to do this without lineart XD because at the moment Im into no line paintings and im able to do it front view or 3'4ths view but side view :iconashleynoplz: Not so much

If you'll paint it realistically, then there won't be any lines ;) This I did tutorial for semi-realism and anime. I actually don't draw black lines (I never did that :giggle:) at the beginning. You can paint the line with similar color as the hair (on the part where you draw the line), so that it'll be barely visible :D And sorry for so late reply...I'm not that much online lately ^^;
