There's more shading on the left side of her body, but not more shading on that side of her hair - don't you think you should shade the overall hair too? ;) And you can probably save yourself some trouble by making brushes that draw more than one hair at the time. Still -pretty!

thanks for sharing your style. Thanks to you I found a better way to colour other than cell shading. You're my hero :D

One question to a problem I haven't figured out or probably missed. Do you use a new layer per color
Reply
:iconaugustc4:
augustc4 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2007
nah, just one layer for all of the colors.
sometimes I'll separate the hair onto a layer of it's own though

As usual, your overall coloring technique is excellent. Hard to believe I was giving you pointers when I first met you on DA--you've grown so far that it makes me a little jealous!

I do have one suggestion about the hair, though: remember to treat the top of the head as a round, three-dimensional object. The hair in this tutorial looks flat when compared to the face, because the shadows don't follow the same lighting. All it'll take to correct that is darkening the hair a little on the left side.

Thanks for the kind words surfeit, they mean a lot coming from you!
And you're right about the hair, I should have made it a point to do that. But I was so glad to have figured out how to do blondes that I didn't want to mess up what I had XD

*LOL* I know that feeling. I usually cheat and create a new layer whenever I'm about to make a change that I'm nervous about. (Shh. Just between you and me. :p)

No, it only took me like three or four hours including the drawing part. I figured it would stay unfinished forever if I didn't bust it out like a madwoman :]

this is just too sweet. I like your comments very much, they're very funny. But even with this tutorial, you need a very steady mouse-hand to get those perfect strokes of hair, it's just amazing how you managed to do that.
