lEdogawa's Anime Hair Tutorial by lEdogawa lEdogawa's Anime Hair Tutorial by lEdogawa

!!! HUGE FILE !!!


Seeing as quite a few of you have been asking me how I color hair, I thought it was about time I showed you guys! I tried to make it as simple and straight forward as possible, and I hope it all makes sense! //Even though I suck at explaining stuff OTL;

If there's a step or anything that you don't understand, don't hesitate to ask! I will try my best to explain it in another way <3

Here's some other, maybe, helpful stuff by me~

Could you further explain the last step? Sorry, I'm not that good at coloring... XD

1. Make a new layer above all your other layers. 
2. Set that layer to "color dodge" (I think only PhotoShop has this kind of layer, but I'm not sure)
3. Pick the gradient tool and use it to place a straight gradient starting at the corner of the picture (Or where your light source is) - for this picture I used an orange gradient.
4. Lower the opacity of the color dodge layer to somewhere around 20% (otherwise it will pretty much ruin your shading)
5. A-and that's it! I don't know how else to explain it. Just place a gradient and set the layer to color dodge and lower the opacity ; u ;<3 //Sorry for being so bad at explaining OTL

I just realized there's no option for it in Paint Tool SAI...or at least, none that I know. Oh well...

Thank you so much!
When you go to add shadowing how do you determine how dark to go each time. Like when I use yellow to make blonde hair and then I try to go darker it just looks like the wrong shade and I can't seem to make it right.

I usually don't really think much about it... I just go with a color that I think fits the image >_<; I know that doesn't really help you all that much, but I really don't think about it ;_;'''
