Thanks for the great tutorial. I was stuck with making the hair look more realistic on my own wacom learning curve. I was wondering though, I see you work at strait up and down all the time, don't you ever have to rotate the image? I find my coordination doesn't allow me to do some angles with the image strait up and down before me

Shandor>> Thank you brother, hair can be really tricky...I guess it's depending on the content and what you want to achieve/ style. PS doesn't really allow me to I will have to work with what I have. It would be nice if I could rotate. Maybe I could find a plug in somewhere on the web. ;)

Hey thanks for your damn good tutorials, i am practising with your works but sometimes i can't watch some of your videos. Thats really sad, when i want to see so bad how you are doing this hair and then i can't watch it because of this mirror where you are uploading it.
So i am wondering if this video doesn't start because of an error or does it not start because of an missing plugin on my computer or something else. So, can you guys watch this video or is it brocken?
If it's brocken i would ask you for fixing it, because i really need to know how i can improve my skills when it comes to drawing hair.
Hope for a answer :)

Kiwi> Thank for the kind words, this video is really old, but it is still work on mine. It is host on REVVER site so sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. If you have flash plugins it should work fine. Try hitting refresh buttons you might get lucky. On the other note, if you have a Mac, that could be a problem viewing some of the online flash format. Mac doesn't like Flash. :)
Good luck,
