Hair Colouring Tutorial - my way by Rin-Shiba Hair Colouring Tutorial - my way by Rin-Shiba
bigger size available for download (warning big file)
I tried to make it so that you can read easily but ended up being a huge file... ;w; I'm sorry.

Please refer to the old(outdated) hair tut for step 4 -> (update) Complete step by step tut: Skin colouring tut: Lineart colour

Tablet pen (that i use) : Intuos 4 (you will need a tablet pen... not with a mouse.. )

:bulletblue: Many have asked me to make a hair tutorial, (and my previous one was getting outdated) so here is the second attempt.

Here is the finished pic -->

:bulletblue: Yet again, this is a very simple tut.
You may like it or not, and it's just the way I do it,
so read it as a reference. ;w; (everyone has their own (better) way to do things).

:bulletblue: I hope it makes sense... I truly suck at explaining things... orz
MANY APOLOGIES for any grammer/spelling mistakes!! (T△T) (English isn't my first language... (;ω;) )

なんという言い訳www 日本語もろくに出来ないくせにw

Hello! this tutorial is wonderfull! I was looking for a good want and I found a perfect one! *0* I wish I could paint like you! I'll practice a lot and this will be very helpful.
