PostSubject: Hair Drawing! How so far?   Sun Jun 26, 2011 5:38 pm

First topic message reminder :

Why is it that I can draw hair better in real life, then in GIMP? It is annoying lol, here is the proof.

Please don't post rude messages. Deep is actually trying and taking critique, which not a lot of people do. If you have something helpful to say- yay, if not, then talk about the weather. ;)

Yupp I use a tablet! If you like to draw, I would recommend buying one. It makes everything so much easier, if you're really interesting in graphic arts.

It makes cutting out sims, erasing, drawing clothes/makeup/hair so much easier. I could not go back to mouse LOL They're pretty cheap too. The bamboo ones are nice and do the trick. I have an old graphire (which they don't even make anymore LOL) and she is still kicking after 6 years of abuse.

Oh yeah you will love it then! Do you use photoshop as well?
I recommend using Wacom. It's going to be your number one brand. The Bamboo is they're cheapest version. It's not that it's not great or anything, it just doesn't have as much bells and whistles as the other two.

Oh Hai there Elda!

From what I can tell the texture is a lot better. It still seems the problem lies with the shape. The ponytail part seems a little too stiff. Like even thought the hair is in motion, it should still be curving. The only way it could stick straight out like that would be if there was a ton of gel or styling wax. It also seems your hair line is a little off. Almost like the hair was drawn for a different angle.

@Jillie
the angle thing makes tons of sense. I just don't know how to make it the right angle, without her looking like a boy, so I gave her a side pony T_T

I tried working on the shape, but I don't know how to make it more "whispy"...

Okay well the thing about the angle, is that if you look at your hair it, the front doesn't line up the the center of her face.

The ponytail should initially curl in towards the sim and then curve back out. If it sticks straight out, then it's defying gravity. That idea could work, but there has to be a lot more motion going on. More of a falling type motion, would make sense for more of a straight, but even then the hair could still have some wave to it.

You should have some volume, you wouldn't want it to be sticking to the head, since hair doesn't do that. But if you look at the tail, the thickness is the same, it's the fact that with mine, it waves into a smaller end, and yours sticks out like a fan. Hair needs to flow.
