SHORT HAIR TUTORIAL by K-Koji SHORT HAIR TUTORIAL by K-Koji
 Well, everyone asks me for tutorials, so I thought I'd try a simple one for short hair. While I did my last artwork, I took screenshots as I went to try and illustrate what I do.
  It might not be the best way, but I tried! lol.  Hope I explained things ok :o

 If people like this one, I might do a more involved tutorial on long hair.

I was browsing (or perhaps stalking a bit) your gallery, when I happened upon this, and I had to give it a try.
My artwork isn't nearly as delightful as yours, but at least the hair is a lot better than where it was.
So, thank you very much for creating this tutorial.

Ty for the tutorial! I have a question: what does flow control in PS? I understand opacity but I don't quite understand flow. Pls and Ty

 I believe Flow controls how much paint is expelled from the brush. I always have my brushes at about 80% flow,

Tutorial!!! Thank you so much for making it! You should absolutely make a long hair one s well. :D

P.S: Your explanations are great, but it'd be even better if you used bigger images and smaller text. (Perhaps if each image was the size of the last one, that'd be good.)

Thank you very much for revealing this adorable secret of drowning hair! It's a delicate workmanship and it's rare that someone would tell everyone how does it work. =) But, of course, the great result is the merit of your talant rather than of technical supplies. I've been wondering a lot exactly of how you're doing that stuff! Now I'll be wondering even more of how you created the perfect hair of Undertaker, so long and straight, and elegantly curving at the edges! Akari Akazaki (Smirk and Cries) [V1]

You make it look so darn easy! :ashamed: Really nice of you to share your knowledge and techniques! :) It gave me many ideas to color more than just hair, especially the overlay part, how come I never thought about that?! I would love if you did more tutorials :) this one is really easy to understand what you did ^^
