Paint­ing curly hair

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

To cre­ate the ef­fect of soft, silky, bouncy curls, I avoid cre­at­ing a strong con­trast be­tween shades of grey. To fo­cus the viewer’s eye on the face, it’s not nec­es­sary to de­tail all the strands, per­haps just those lo­cated near the fore­head and cheeks. I also avoid cus­tom brushes for paint­ing hair, be­cause they can eas­ily cre­ate the ef­fect of a ma­te­rial thread, rather than hair strands.
