Semi-Realism Hair Tutorial by kamism Semi-Realism Hair Tutorial by kamism
Because I haven't uploaded anything recently //shot

Some tips I wanted to share because I feel like I've improved a lot on drawing hair since I first joined deviantart ^^;

I intentionally left the blue and red hair ones messy so you can understand the use of the Overlay layer and that it is just a layer that goes on top of the grey hair layer.

This mop of hair belongs to someone, a piece I'm working on ^ u ^

Uhmm... Nice work men, but I have one question, how do you make those hair strands so sharp?
kamism Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014  Student Digital Artist
awww thank you :iconbrohugplz:
By increasing the sharpness of the layer or increasing the opacity and hardness of the brush you use to paint the hair strands.
