Getting Started...


Step 1.

I am only going to show the basics here. I will start off by showing you how to get the strands and look I create with my hair. I suggest you practice with strands like this before you try anything to difficult.

I am going to apply some strands to this white background.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 2.

Choosing the color I will be working with. This is not really important because with my method, you can change the hair color at the end of the tutorial.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 3.

Grab the hair brush you will be working with and size it down to your choosing.

Hair Brushes can be downloaded here - CLICK FOR BRUSHES


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 4.

I have selected the "PATHS" tool in the toolbox on the top left. I will make a "S" Shape on the white background for the stroke of the Hair.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 5.

Now click "Stroke Path" and make sure you have the option "Stoke with a Paint tool" and "Emulate brush dynamics" selected. These are both very important or your strokes will NOT look like mine.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 6.

You should now have a smooth stroke of hair strands. If you got something with a bunch of dots, this means your spacing is not set to 1.0 as seen in the bottom right of the paint brush box.

Go on ahead and stroke the brush a couple more times to thicken it up a bit.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 7.

Now I will ADD NEW LAYER and select a tad lighter shade of hair color.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 8.

I have now applied a few more strands of the lighter shade of hair on top of our original strands.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 9.

ADD NEW LAYER > Select another lighter shade of hair. We will now be applying another layer of strands on top of the bottom two layers you just applied.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 10.

This is what I have now...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 11.

ADD NEW LAYER > I will be applying one last set of strands. So once again grab a tad lighter shade of hair.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 12.

I Will apply one set of strands on top of the bottom 3 layers. You should now see it coming together nicely and the hair has some depth.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 13.

"Merger all visible layers". This will make all the hair layers into ONE LAYER.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 14.

COLOR CHANGING TIME! I really like playing with purple hue colored hair just for the fun of it. I think the high lights on maroon/purple hair looks good and something a lil different.

I will play with the color hues until I find something I like.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 15.

NOW DUPLICATE YOUR LAYER

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 16.

In the layers box you will see a drop down box next to "MODE" and on the top layer you will change it to "OVERLAY"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 17.

Adding SHINE! Shine is VERY important when creating hair and no you should not have white blobs of shine, You should make the hair shine looks realistic and it should blend well into the hair. So I have 2 different ways I shine hair. First being with the dodge tool set to "Highlight" and you MUST use a fuzzy circle brush and DAB IT when applying the shine. OR the second way which is pretty common for A LOT of hair drawers and this is the "Overlay" option.

So ADD NEW LAYER > Grab your fuzzy circle brush and apply some white paint on top of the hair where the shine should be. Now go to the overlay option again and select it.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Step 18.

Gaussian Blur! This will blur out the high lights you just applied so they are not too chunky and they fade out over the hair nice and smooth.

You are done!

Im so so so confused with this new tutorial, is there a place that i can see the old 1??

this tutorial is actually more in depth than the old, but the video is still the same way the old written one was done. Not much of a difference between the two other than the shine part.

I don't think I ever posted this one up here. Lol My first attempt at a curly hair. It's not very HQ when you blow up the picture but I like the way it turned out anyway:

Yes it was nerve wracking because most it is just brushes besides the shape drawing part. >__<

Nice job bubbles! The highlights and shading are perfect! You just need a tiny bit more volume, but other than that, great job!!!

I combined this method with alittle of my own playing around on my latest project. It needs work but its really the best I've done so far.

For reference this was the style I was imitating for the top: x

Oh you guys just keep getting better and better

@bubbles, I like your latest hair drawing the most. I like you used many different colors within it. I think it just needs a lil more volume and a tad darker near the roots.

@Kosmo, Love the white hair, it is tricky to get it right and I think you did awesome.

@Traelia, Love it! I think the shape came out awesome and you did great with the shine. I think the only thing I would do to improve it is darkening the roots just a tad more so it adds a lil more depth to the hair and it will def make it pop.

You can also add lil bits of shines on the fly aways at the tips where it would be needed ofc

You guys are rocking these hair drawings for sure!

Thanks Bliss :D I did this one today with my Native American model Miakoda Silverstone. It was just hair drawing practice but my Tumblr followers loved it so I thought I'd post it here. I really wish I had a drawing tablet so I could draw more precisely lol.

That looks great kosmo A few of the ends looks a lil smudged out but I think the shape and strands look fabulous. You def have it down when it comes to hair drawing
