ShiyumiSama: Hair Colouring Tutorial by ShiyumiChan ShiyumiSama: Hair Colouring Tutorial by ShiyumiChan
The first drawing(lineart) is by :iconalicesukishima: And I coloured it O3O
ShiyumiSama's Style Hair Colouring Tutorial

Hey guys so I finally got my butt off and finished my "Hair colourinig tutorial" this was requested by :iconcaptain-gelowaggle:

For more detailed Steps:
(Optional Steps for BASE colouring)
1. Select all the area you want to colour with your magic tool.

2. Use Bucket tool to colour the selected areas.

3. Go over the uncoloured areas with pen tool.

(Hair colouring Steps:)
4. CREATE NEW LAYER CLIP. Find your light source and with the Airbrush Tool, shade the darker areas.

5. (OPTIONAL Merge it down with the base layer.)

6. CREATE NEW LAYER CLIP. (I use a DIFFERENT Airbrush tool (my own settings) to colour the hair) Use the Airbrush2 Tool to shade the strands of hair. from the top of the roots - down and from the tips of the hair - up. Try not to colour on the LINES, it will make your drawing look more flat.
* Remember darker areas will be shaded more

LOL TYPO~ (skip 7)

8. CREATE NEW LAYER CLIP. Find the darker areas and lighter areas AGAIN. The circled areas in red are the areas where I would shade with darker tones the most and the circled areas in blue will be left more lighter.

9. CREATE NEW LAYER CLIP. Set "Blend mode" to Additon/Lumiosity (<OPTIONAL). use a lighter shade and with the Airbrush2 Tool draw big strokes across the areas where light is hitting.

10. Using the Soft Eraser tool (<another one of my own settings) start erasing the outer edges to make it look more soft.

*** ADDITIONAL HAIR TOUCH UPS ***
- Create Clip Layer ontop of the lineart and colour it in light-dark shades of the hair colour
- Create Clip Layer ontop of the hair colour and use Airbrush Tool to lightly shade the darker areas.
- Create Clip Layer ontop of the lineart and use the Pen Tool to draw light hair strand strokes.

DONE~

Ps. You can check out my Airbrush+Eraser Settings in the tutorial (You just gotta look hard and search for it!)
BUT I RECOMMEND YOU To create your own settings as you too are artists and thus must go out and find your own style instead of being a copy cat for the rest of your life. (Incorporating ones idea and your own idea is ofc ACCEPTABLE)

Need Practice? Here's a free Lineart for you too use

Please give credits back to me if you plan on using it. (I would also love to see your finished results :) so if you want comment back down with the link to the lineart and your colouring.

Paint tool sai looks so complex... I want to get it, but I'm worried I wouldn't know how to work it.. would you recommend sai, or do you think I wouldn't be able to use it (I'm.... well, lets just say I'm in sixth grade.) Cuz my dad wants to get me an art program for mah bday... in nine days.

if you know how to use photoshop. you'll know how to use sai. Just explore around he tools. most of the tools are really straight forward. I got sai when i was in gr 6 too O3O good to practice now OwO

Well I don't know about photoshop.. But the clips and layer clips in sai confuses me.(videos ive seen) and what is the magic tool or whatever?

it's like a selection tool. for example if you drew a circle. and use the selection tool on it click inside the circle and then when you switch your tool to like "pen" the colours won't go splashing everywhere. in a way it functions like a bucket(for example if you drew the circle but theres like this little gap open, the bucket/magic wand tool will flood out) and it also functions like layer clip

Lol I watched the first season and currently watching the second (Which is more fuc*ing awesome than the first, I'll admit). I almost read the mangas, the light novel, 4-Komas, and the side-story manga that involve Sena as the "Protagonist" so to say. It's one of the 400 animes I watched in my life-time thus far. xD

If anyone ever needs to know an or wants a recommendation anime whose genre is ecchi or harem. I'm their guy. I pretty much watched almost every one of them that exists that isn't hentai...'cause hentai is hard to watch every one of, when most of them can only be watched in JAPAN. Every other genre is a maybe. xD
