How to Digitally Paint Hair

Fred Showker's creative jump-start

How can we resist a blog called "Muddy colors" ... and if it's by Serge Birault, you know it's good!
      If you're not familiar with realistic hair, use photo references. This one is a little bit difficult because of the curls and the light, so try with straight and dark hair first.

Fred Showker's creative jump-start

As if it weren't enough for every student and his brother now doing Photoshop tutorials -- the photographers are getting in on the act. Before you know it, there won't be any humans left on earth who are not doing Photoshop tutorials!
      Well, this turns out not to be a tutorial at all, but one woman's experiences playing with a downloaded palette template from the "Coffeeshop Blog" . . . . ( from coffeeshop-colorbar-color-palette ... and here's another one : ColorPalette2.jpg)

Tutorial Wannabe : DIY Color Inspiration Palette

Fred Showker's creative jump-start

So once a couple of the popular Pinterest mavins posted color palettes, every living adult in the state of texas set up a Pinterest for color palettes.
      So here, 'Pea coats and Plad' walks you through a non-tutorial of how she discovered making palettes. (This article mentions some "free" files at some sites, but the ones we tracked, like "" are not only affiliate sites, but will tag you with stalker links)
