I have no idea anymore, I did it a few years ago. I changed some colours, as far as I'm aware - probably with various layers & masks.

dud , how can i make black colored hair . using vexel ??
Reply
:iconvangellj:
VAngelLJ Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The same way as any other coloured hair. I always advise against using actual black though, use dark tones of colours rather than black - same goes for white.

May I ask how long did it take you to do just the hair? And really I'm so grateful for people like you that take the time to help the rest of us who want to be artists, but perhaps the only way they can learn is through tutorials because like me they don't have money to go to art school. :hug:

:iconvangellj:
VAngelLJ Featured By Owner May 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I find art school to be overrated - I've never taken an art class in my life and I think I know enough to know what 'art' is ^^
I think it took about 5 hours overall to do the hair.

MartaEmi Featured By Owner May 12, 2011
5 hours, wow, glad to know that so that I have extra patience. I will give my self at least 8, lol.
