Sai Tutorial: Coloring Hair by CaptainStrawberry Sai Tutorial: Coloring Hair by CaptainStrawberry
AWW YEAH. Hair tut. I love coloring hair SO MUCH. Drawing it is a pain though. ;^;

Again, ask me any questions if you are confused about anything and I'll try my best to answer. <3

IGNORE THE MISTAKES. I CAN'T SPEEL. (Grammar Nazis are gonna be out to get me)

Also, don't be discouraged if it doesn't come out exactly like in the tutorial. It's good to just try out how other people do it and add to your own techniques.

Finally a tutorial I can understand! The ones I've found on youtube only color the hair but don't tell you how or with which tools.
This is awesome, thank you so much <3

I can't seem to select my strokes on SAI...I hold down ctrl, click on the layer but nothing gets selected?

Make sure to hold ctrl while clicking the inside of the thumbnail box of the layer :)
Also check to see if you've made it to where the selection lines don't show up

Thank you very much for this tutorial! If it's not too much trouble, could you tell me what tools (brush, pencil, etc.) you used on each step? ;w;

:iconcaptainstrawberry:
CaptainStrawberry Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'll try since I have to remember what tools I used Emoji26

-making the strokes in steps 2, 4, 9, and 10 I used the ink pen
-step 3 I used the airbrush
-step 6 i think the marker?
-step 7 says with the eraser tool

I'm pretty sure that's what I used at the time
