[edit] WOOOOW! I was awarded my second daily deviation!!! *O*
I'd like to thank =little-billie and ^PirateLotus-Stock for this incredible gift, and all of you for the constant support you give me!!
Thanks a lot, you're amazing!!! :rose:

Hi everybody!!
To thank you all for the support you showed me in the last days, I finally found some time to do the hair coloring tutorial you've been asking me for such a loooong time!
Here you have a complete (or at least I hope so) tutorial on MY WAY to color hair, in a realistic / semi-realistic style.
As I wrote in the tutorial, I use Photoshop, so you might find some differences if you try to apply my technique in SAI or Painter, but I'm sure you can use this a reference all the same, since I don't use any particular tool.

I'd like to remember everybody that this is the way I do hair, which is not the "perfect way" or the "right way" (I don't even think a "right way" exists ^^').
This is just the technique I came up with, and the one I'm more comfortable with!
So, feel free to check it, but if you don't like it or don't want to follow it... it's ok :) Everybody is free to do whatever he/she pleases.
Thanks for reading!

Clicking on the download version you can get the entire tutorial at high res on your pc; I'm sorry it's reeeeally big and heavy, but like this you can read and see everything perfectly!

Of course you can use this as a reference even if you want a more "manga-ish" style, but in case you wanted something different, check out of these amazing tutorials!

The way you do the highlighting and shading of the hair was exactly how I did mine. However, instead of colouring the base first, I instantly jump straight to stroking every single bit of hair.
