Thanks guys

I realise I should have warned that it is a fairly complicated tutorial, and not really one for beginners - it's best if you already know your way around Photoshop before tackling this one. Also, admittedly, this is the most complicated hair I've ever painted - I'm childishly pleased with it at the moment. I was hoping that, even if you're not aiming for an end result so ridiculously detailed (my big weakness, I just don't know when to let things go!) you'll still find something or other useful in the tutorial.

As for the 25% setting... I'm embarrassed to admit I usually use it for most of my brushes. It's partly just not bothering to change it, and partly because it fits my way of painting - I find it easier to apply pen pressure with a spacing set high than low. It might be that I'm still only using an Intuos 1 (boohoo), but I find that when I lower the spacing, I get annoyed because the strokes are too 'harsh'. Working in this large format, the slight unevenness of the 25% doesn't really show, especially not when you paint it over, and over again with different brushes.

Just nabbing a typical, sharp edged round brush, this is the difference of the result I get when using the same kind of pressure -- I just find the higher spacing setting more versatile.



I suppose most illustrators have some little thing they're stubborn about to the point of stupidity, and this is mine. I worked with this one fella at one time and he told me I was dumb for not using a lower spacing on most of my brushes, and I tried, I tried, but I ended up going back to this again.

Anyway, thank you so much, everyone - I'm just happy the tutorial is appreciated, and I hope it's some help to someone. I didn't do it to prove anything, please don't feel that - I've never felt I had anything to prove. I did it in hopes of helping the community in what small ways I can.

Argh, I must correct myself. The spackled brush doesn't have a 25% setting. I think it's got a 5%, force of habit made me write that. Must edit.

now maybe I must make myself more plain of how I like this tutorial: I'm really thankful that someone takes time to do this stuff and help others.. and actually is able to really teach, not just show off. So thanks really much again, sorry if my earlier comment was slightly annoying.

PS. The face is wicked!
