Digital Hair Painting

  • hairtrial

I always liked the way digitally rendered hair (you know, the kind used on those beautiful video game graphics) looked but didn’t really think of learning the technique until I experienced dissatisfaction with the illustration I’m currently working on.

Time for some fun tests! Here is a first, quick attempt. Although the result isn’t perfect (this is definitely something that can’t be rushed and I see that for a more formal illustration I’ll need to place the strands of hair more carefully), I’m still happy with the possibilities available. AND I think it’s a definite improvement on the Final Fantasy renders (see above link) in terms of volume – let’s hear it for virtual mousse :)
