Hair Coloring Tutorial by MissNysha Hair Coloring Tutorial by MissNysha
Finally a hair tutorial! I know several of you wanted one! This one is of my current wallpaper WIP. :D Download for full size. Do NOT steal.

Edit 2: Follow along with its PSD! [link]

Edit: AND THE WALLPAPER IS COMPLETE!!!! [link]

This coloring/re-cging tutorial/walkthrough is rather advanced and assumes knowledge on using the pen tool. See my Vectoring tutorial [link] if you don't know how. :) This tutorial shows my coloring style and hopes to bring a new perspective to those struggling with hair. Enjoy!

Screenshots are about 80% the size of the original psd.
The whole process is about 6-9 hours. I do lots of experimentation and...multitasking! XD

Please ask if you have any questions!
If you have further questions on vector masks, take a look at my Vector Mask Painting tutorial: [link] too.

See full sized (100%) gif process. WARNING large gif animation won't load on some computers. [link]

Or see a (super low quality) small gif as well! [link]

Love your tutorials!
May I ask if you are using a graphics tablet for creating these works of art.
If (Yes)
then may I ask what graphics tablet it is?

hi MissNysha!

i've finally taken up my works again and i actually based one of my wallpapers on minitokyo off of your beautiful work (you probably don't remember, FHsierra1078 XD) but anyways, coming back after YEARS i finally have some time on my hands to try this again...i would love learn this but i think my biggest problem is not knowing how to use the vector mask...any tips on how to start off with that? thank you so much!!

also, is this done with a tablet?

Hello there!

Let's see...have you checked out my more in depth tut on Vector Masks yet? fav.me/d39rah2

Making them does not require a tablet since it's essentially the same as making vector shapes, though if you wanted to paint in them then using a tablet is useful for the pressure sensitivity.

Let me know if you have any further questions!

I'm sorry I do not speak Russian. :( Even with Google translate it is still hard to understand your question.
