Digital Hair Shading Tips by wick-y Digital Hair Shading Tips by wick-y
This is probably a bad idea since my last tutorial didn't go so well. ^^; Please remember that this is meant for beginners and I know I'm not an expert, I just wanted to share some tips I think would be helpful to those of you having trouble drawing semi-realistic hair. My examples aren't great (the hair came out fried-looking on the tips :P) but hopefully you understand how it's supposed to look. There are tons of other techniques; this is just the one I use. I use Photoshop 2.0 but this should work in any program. I hope some of you find this useful! :)

Thank you for all the favs and views guys, I really appreciate it!

Not sure I know what you mean, could you rephrase?  Sorry. ^^;  The hex code is #8B0202 if that's what you're asking.

sorry, i spelt it wrong.... the pallette colors you placed on the corner that you were so nice to give us for use...thats what i mean, i was wondering what the colors were for you to make this red hair. (i'm horrible with communication, so i hope i explained right)

Oh it's no problem, I just suck at understanding people. ^^;  The exact colors I used are in the little swatch things under each step.  Basically I started out with a dark, slightly orange red and gradually made it lighter and more purple. :)
