SAI Hair coloring Tutorial by MusicBento SAI Hair coloring Tutorial by MusicBento
CONFUSED YETTT? LOOOOL.

SO this is more like a process with a bunch of scibbled notes rather than a tutorial. I hope it's still understandable! OTL;; Sorry~

This is for ~Candygore69 since she won first prize in my contest about two months ago. She requested a tutorial on how I drew Dei's hair in some of my pictures.

BTW I change the process of how I draw hair EVERYTIME.
This process goes with the finished picture, and some of the steps apply to some of my older works.
I take about 30min - 2hours coloring hair. Have fun~ xDD


Feel free to ask questions to cause that's why I'm showing it to you guys too. :I

The problem is, this is only for one style of hair, and one style of art; as most of the SAI tutorials I find seem to be. Do you know of any more general tutorials?
Reply
:iconmusicbento:
MusicBento Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
Yeah, cause this tutorial was requested for a specific character's hair.
And nope. But there are a million more SAI hair tuts just by using dA's search engine alone.

Thanks for the tutorial. It's very good. How do you get your shadows so sharp :?
Reply
:iconmusicbento:
MusicBento Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
Hmm, i used a hard brush like pen to start off with haha. Eraser is also great to make clean edges. Also i usually add a sharpen filter at the very end.

What kind of brush did you use for Tobi's mask? The texture there looks really nice :O
Reply
:iconmusicbento:
MusicBento Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
Probably the same oil water brush as in the tutorial lol. I also have like 2 or 3 layers above the color layer for the mask, and those are set to either 'multiply' or 'addition'. And I know i'm using the a texture file from this tutorial - [link] .

MusicBento Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012
Uhm i think it's just switching between the pen brush and eraser constantly. Use hotkey to interchange easily. And then i usually always have my left hand on ctrl+z to quickly undo lines. You also need to learn how to have a good wrist movement to give a good stroke.
