Pixel hair mini-workshop! CLOSED

Postby Twigg » Mon Jun 07, 2010 8:41 pm

Okay. Here's the deal. I'm leaving to go to oregon in 9 days. But I really wanna do a hair workshop, since I LOVE pixeling hair.

I'll take 3 people who want to learn how to pixel hair and will actually reply in a timely manner.

1. Marly-Pop!
2. Chrissy
3. LIL KIM.

Examples of my work:

As soon as I get my three people, we'll begin ASAP.

For those who want a more in depth workshop with hair, when I get back, around July 16th or so, I'll be doing a full body doll workshop. So keep that in mind.

Alrighty! First things first. Do we wanna do a portrait base with a lot of hair? Or a full body? Or possibly both?

Alright! Sounds good. We'll be working on the two simultaneously then, if that's okay with everyone.

Okay. Now. I want you all to pick two bases. A full body, and a portrait. The fullbody can be any size you want, but pick a size that's difficult for you. Like, if you can't doll hair on a large scale, go with a medium to large size. If you can't doll hair on a small scale, go with a smaller base. But I don't want any huge bases, seeing as that's what the portraits are for.

After everyone has their bases. Let me know. [:

Yay! I'll be using my Hayden base as the fb and Lithriel's new portrait base.

Lets begin!
Okay, first thing. I don't care what style you pick. Pick a style that you maybe need help with for one base and one that you just simply like for the other. What I want you do to first is find some sort of references for these styles. Unless it's a fantasy style, then a resource really isn't needed, I don't suppose. Do that first.

Then let me know.

Great! We can get started.

Okay what you wanna remember is that hair shouldn't ever be stiff. Unless you're pippi longstocking, a who, or have an obscene amount of hair spray in.

Also, the hair you pixel doesn't have to match the ref exactly. Make it your own!

First I want you to outline your hairstyles. I like to do it lineless, or block it in, in chunks. Which is why whenever I post WIPs they always have rainbow hair. :|

But do whatever is comfortable to you. When you're done, show me what you've got! If you need any help, I'm here!
I'll be working on mine as well if anyone needs visual help. [:

Here's mine so far!

The return of the rainbow hair!
I do it this way because for me, it's just easier to shade, doing it section by section, because that way it's less confusing. But right now the point is to get the shape and flow of the hair down, because believe it or not, that's most important. If the hair doesn't flow well you're gonna have nicely shaded, stiff, awkward hair. We don't want that.

But you don't gotta do it how I do. Just outline your hair the way you want to. When you post yours I'll critique as necessary.

I only did the fb for now as I got school and not enough time for port ^.^;

Hope it look good!

Image I might redo the ponytail.


Psst! Marl it look good. Maybe a bit of texture needed to make it look like a towel?
