Tutorial: Painting Hair by Neemeister Tutorial: Painting Hair by Neemeister
I've frequently been asked about how I paint hair. The explanation is longer than could be given in a simple comment, so I decided to make a tutorial. I wanted to share some of the tricks and techniques I've discovered that have made the process so much easier and quicker than my previous methods when I first started working digitally. I'm still learning and developing my techniques, but this tutorial is what is at the core.

I use Painter (currently Painter X) but the methods decribed should easily translate to Photoshop (or any other Painting program that allows for customs brushes and has similar features.)

Hope you enjoy and find something useful. :)

i am having a hard time replicating your speckle brush. i tryed to cap dap and i also tried to edit the coarse spray in the airbrushes category and it still comes out very harsh and rake like with no soft fading or blending at all. do you know which airbrush you edited specifically?

This is one of the most amazing hair tutorials I've seen. I thought I had seen them all until I cam across this. It has really helped me, and I'm definitely going to try it out. As of now, I suck at painting hair. :lol:

Thank you so much. :hug:
