Tiny tips: Easy braider by Ranarh Tiny tips: Easy braider by Ranarh
My friend ~Genji-brush told me to sit down and make a tutorial about this to share how easy braids can be, so I did. I hope the point-and-lines approach is easy enough to understand.
Another thing to mention about hairdos would be that they should never look too smooth unless you're going for that 60ies-movie-look when hair didn't move. Always pull out some stray strands and fluff it up in a few parts. All of us with more hair than Megamind know how much trouble it can be to get it to lie down and behave ;)

"Ranarh's tiny tips" is a collection of iddy-biddy tutorials, each containing small bites of advice anyone can chew, aimed at beginner's level artists. They are not software-dependent. If there's a problem you have, something you feel someone should finally explain, or are just curious what I have to say on a particular artistic issue, feel free to tell me.


You'll find the whole Tiny Tips Collection, plus some full-grown walkthroughs in my tutorial section. Check out my blog and website for exclusive tutorials, walkthroughs, and tips.

Ah now that is genius, I'm going to use the dot system, my problem is always having too many lines and then rubbing out the wrong ones. I know a lot of artists struggle with realistic hairstyles, also your descriptions show how to add weight to the hair which is just as important. Hooray for tutorials!!

Thank you. Now can you recommend a tutorial or manual on paint programs, I use Artweaver but it is much like Corel Painter and they all are similar enough that a basic tutorial should work for all software.

I just don't understand the software. Like all the things in the brush area and how do you change color and all that.

I don't know any specific tutorial for basic software use - I've been at it too long - but I always found Marta Dahlig's aka `blackeri's tutorials very helpful. There are also many on imaginefx.com.
Sometimes with a new software, it takes a little time to get used to everything. What do you mean by "changing color"?

Hi, thanks for replying :-) What I mean about changing color is I don't know how to change the color of the brush. I am a complete newbie at this.
