Paint­ing re­al­is­tic hair

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

I’m not fond of the term ‘spaghetti hair’, but it’s an ac­cu­rate de­scrip­tion for some­thing you want to avoid. A com­mon mis­take with hair is to paint ev­ery strand in­di­vid­u­ally. Re­al­is­ti­cally hair doesn’t do this; it will clus­ter and form groups. In this step I paint larger shapes first. Sin­gle strands are then added af­ter­wards for an el­e­ment of re­al­ism.
