Rendering the hair
I copy and paste this section of hair and modify it, so it looks natural. I don’t render all the hair by copying and pasting the same area of strands, but this approach does save time. I’m using a standard Photoshop brush, on a low Opacity. It’s crucial to paint with a soft, gentle hand when rendering hair. The smoother and softer your stylus strokes, the better the results.
Painting the accessories
I switch back to Manga Studio and prepare to tackle the flower. First, using the Soft Airbrush I fill the flower’s petals, marking the lighter and darker areas of my petals. Then, with the Smooth Watercolor Brush I give the petals more definition on their edges. I use the Rough pencil to create an irregular texture on the petal’s edge, and use the Blurred Spray Brush to enhance the texture on the edge of the petals.
