SAI CG Hair Tutorial by Raayzel SAI CG Hair Tutorial by Raayzel


I'm never the one to do tuts, usually i'm the one looking for them /OTL
WARNING: This is a pretty big file!

Things to note;
- It would be easier if you already have a good understanding with SAI
- I usually work on a big canvas (2000x3000px) so the brush size i consider thin may vary from yours.
- I used a tablet for this.
______________________________

Sorry no rainbow hair this time, didn't wanna be held responsible for teaching you guys how to blind others with colour XD

This is my first tutorial so i'm sorry if I might be too vague! I tried my best to explain why and how I do things, but i'm afraid I might not have made sense >O<

Anyhow I hope you find this somewhat helpful~ And remember, patience and practice!

Oh and sorry for any typos, was finishing this around midnight last night lol
PS. Please don't ask me where to download SAI XD

How do your lines seem so perfect? o_O I've been practicing on my tablet for about a year now but for some reason my lines always seem crooked...any advice?

This is great! I've been dying to try out a new coloring style for hair and this looks wonderful! Thanks for making it so easy to understand! :D

 

Quick question though, what settings does you brush tool have? I'm asking because mine draws lines really light and blurry compared to the one you showed in the example... Any ideas???
