Awesome tutorial :D I was just wondering...which brush did you use for the hair?

Thanks, just the standard brush (first in the list). A little more explained in my skin tutorial...

Really nice painting and tutorial! But can i ask if you used 100% opacity for your brushes the whole way?

Hi, thanks. No, I alter the opacity by the pressure of the tablet pen. The Wacom Intuos5 has 2048 levels of pen pressure. Basically, in Photoshop, I set the opacity of the brush to Pen Pressure. I explain it a bit more in one of my other tutorials here:

Sorry, just to clarify, with opacity set to pen pressure, if I draw lightly with the pen, the 'paint' in Photoshop is almost 0% opacity and as i press harder, it will go up to 100%... with practice, it becomes very natural. Unlike a mouse which has either on or off, you have to set the opacity manually and becomes quite a cumbersome way to paint.

thanks, i have been struggling to make my hair look more realistic rather than just big dull strands. You explain the process of painting hair very nicely :)
