Hair, skin, and eye tutorial (colour)
Uploaded: 5 April 2007
use as a template
how to draw
So...many...steps! Dx
This tutorial was made in Shi Painter, and the steps will use directions according to
the layout of Shi Painter.

Step 1- Lay down a base colour.  Any colour will do.  If you're trying to do white
hair, lay down a light grey first.  Using a white base colour won't work here.
Step 2- Add 3 (or more) LARGE streaks of highlights using the dodge tool.  The
lighter the colour of the base, the lower the power you want to set the dodge tool
to.  You can change the power by clicking on the grey bar and dragging it either
right for a higher, more intense shine, or left for a softer shine.
Step 3- Start adding in small highlights by setting the dodge tool to size 0 and
colouring along the curves of the hair.
Step 4- Repeat Step 3 until the head is completely filled with highlights (it's time
consuming, but it's a fairly easy technique with practice)
Done with hair.

Step 1- Lay down a base coat of the colour of the skin ON A SEPARATE LAYER BENEATH
THE ORIGINAL LINEART.  This is important, because if you were to do it on the same
layer, chaos would ensue in the future.  Trimming away at eccess colour with the
eraser tool is an easy way to  make the colouring seem drawn on one layer.
Step 2- Using the airbrush and a slightly darker colour than the base, add in shadows
where necessary.  I can't tell you where exactly to place the shadows, because each
drawing is different, from the style used by the artist to the skill of the artist.
Highlights are optional, but a very good idea.

Step 1- Draw an eye in black.
Step 2- Fill in the iris, leaving the highlights and pupil their original colours.
Step 3- Using the dodge tool at size 0, draw lines that radiate from the center out
to the very edges of the iris.

Suckeh tutorial, I know.

If this oekaki is inappropriate, just ignore it.
Do not give the "artist" the attention he wants!

Commenting will even make it popular!
