and always before starting to paint hair, select Pen Pressure on the brush configurations.

Basic Hair Tutorial by Whendell

Tutorial - Simple Red Hair

I will show you a simple technique, because the hair is not 100% painted, a technique that I use in my work.

video process here:…

Step 1-
 'll change the hair color, the color you choose, I'll do the hair with red tone.
changed with color balance, but the base has to be a little dark, then darkened and put more contrast.
Step 2-
and the first wires painted with a dark color.

Step 3 - 4:
start putting color in hair, wired with the color you want the hair, and at this stage I used the brush Flat Angle Low Bristle Count.
Step 5:
from now, I'll use the Soft Round Pressure Size brush to make the wires (in a small size, the size of the brush depends on each image.). and I will start using a light color to make the lighting on the hair.

Step 6 - 7:
continue using the previous brush, and making light wires, with different light colors for hair to have movement and look more realistic.
