Hair - step by step by ikr Hair - step by step by ikr
Spanish: [link] (thank you very much ~Ash-Kamiya for translating it!)

Finished picture + photoshop edit:



Other pictures where I used this method:




Please ignore the stupid chair =v=, it's so out of proportion and perspective~~~:heart: I did this on a rush, sorry T_T

A few notes about this guide:

:bulletred: Brush settings are really important! Play around with the 'Color blending, opacity mix and persistence' options, you'll get different effects each time~ (I'd love to explain more about these options but my English sucks :heart: Just try different settings and you'll see by yourself). Also, it's not the same if you use different colors on the same layer or in separate layers. For better blending results, use one layer for all.

:bulletred: I always set the min. size of the brush to 0% (airbrush to 100%)

:bulletred: I forgot to mention that the highlights layer is on Addition mode

:bulletred: Using different colors from the picture on the shadows / highlights will make your colors feel more 'integrated'. Also, try not to use always the same shadow tone or light tone, and play with the hue and saturation of your colors before selecting them.

I hope this can be useful at least for someone! if you have any questions let me know~!

Ahhhh. This is so simple, yet you still make it look good. I need to practice stuff like this more instead of flat-coloring or cell-shading all the time... ;w;"

Clear enough tut, thanks for making it!

Hola! ME acabo de dar cuenta ke en tu comentarios de artista pusiste algunas aclaraciones ke se me pasaron totalmente incluìrlos, ¿podrìas hacer esa misma aclaración en español? por ke algunas cositas no le entiendo mucho.
