Tutorial: Coloring Hair by Curryuku Tutorial: Coloring Hair by Curryuku

I know the clothes coloring got first place in the poll but my ordering of coloring is Skin, Hair, then clothes i always color clothes last xD so i submitted hair first since i colored that first lol the Clothes one will come later on when i get everything together :)

and yea this is how i color my hairs its not really exact but its very close description of what i do the tools i use and whatnot ;u;~

lol its my first time making something like this so im sorry if i broke your head looking at it; :icontearplz:

You can also use MediBang Paint, besides the fact there's no fringe and oil brush.

What art program do you use?
AffanIndo Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that is paint tool sai
jbunny122 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2016  Hobbyist
Thank you. Is it free, and does it need an administrator password to use? (Some .exe applications need permissions such as that, so I need to know if I need my parent's help or not. You know, to save time.)
AffanIndo Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, it's not free :D
It doesn't need administrator
PikaKyun Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2016
its free :>
jbunny122 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2016  Hobbyist
The paint tool Sai I just downloaded was free, but it required admin password T.T
I downloaded it from someone on deviantart

Wow~ This is really helpful, I might try it. But I have a question, do or can you also apply this kind of technique for skin or clothes (not just hair) Thank you so much ^^

Alright, I used your tutorial here:
Colour Hair and Eye Practice by Pastel-Nero-Chuu
I love how you colour hair and I love how it turned out on mine.
I'll try to use it similar from now on because it's just the style of colour I've been wanting to learn for hair!!
Thank you so much for this!!
AkageOtoha Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist

I just have to play around. I'll post when I can, lol.
Thank you for this!! I'll tag you when I post, okay??

I don't know if you read all your comments, but, I just want to say thank you. I know that you probably here this all the time. It's nighttime and I'm actually doing this tutorial. I never drew something so good than now. I bought my own digital art program not long ago, and I thought it was crap, because I couldn't do what I wanted to do. Turns out I just need to search for the right tools. You really helped me out a lot. 

So thank you.

Ba-Dajaty Featured By Owner May 23, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
not to be to judge mental but the way you shade hair is to inefficient for it to come out looking only good not hot damn

This is very helpful! What is the option in Photoshop for clipping layers?
ScarPath358 Featured By Owner Edited May 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In the layers tab, you'll find "clipping mask" and that should be the equivalent to the clipping layer :) if you're someone who prefers keyboard shortcuts, then it's control+g

Hope this works and remember to keep the mask layer above the colored layer ^^

my apologies if you've already found out how,,, orz
larnacy Featured By Owner May 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for answering! :wave: revamp 
ScarPath358 Featured By Owner May 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
