Semi-Realistic Hair - A SAI Tutorial by Elerya Semi-Realistic Hair - A SAI Tutorial by Elerya
So... This is my first ever tutorial. I wasn't really planning on doing one but *Iseanna :iconiseanna: kept asking me to do one since she always thinks my hair looks amazing. xP So here it is. I hope that anyone who sees it can get something out of it. Lol.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
Thank you!

I have no idea what fire alpaca is. :o It's a fairly simple method so I imagine it would work in most drawing softwares.

Fire alpaca is basically the love child of photoshop and sai (or so I've been told). Once I get a tablet I'll have to try this technique(i think i spelled that right)

A lot of people say that the bamboo splash is great for beginners, and I can agree with that. I own the bamboo splash, and it works AMAZING.

Personally, I have a Wacom Bamboo tablet. Wacom no longer offers the bamboo but they do offer the Intuos which is around the same price. 

www.wacom.com/us/en/creative/i…

79$ which I would consider pretty reasonable.

I have had a look on a online store from were I'm from, and they are still selling the Bamboo tablet, and the Intuos is 59 so they would both be an option for me. 
Thank you

Really good tutorial! Though it would take a long time to draw every strand like that. I suggest using the Fine Hollow option for your brush to do multiple strands at once c:

I tried that at first but wasn't really liking the results it gave. To me, it's worth the extra time it takes to draw every strand.

Technically, it's possible with SAI's vector tools... But it would take WAY more time than it's worth. D:

It's meant to be a tablet tutorial. :c Sorry

Hm... SAI's vector tools? It is harder than using a tablet, isn't it? Ahhh.... I really want a tablet ;A; Okay, thank you ^^

Yes! Next to the new layer button in SAI there is a button to create a new vector layer. you can use the curve tool to make some nice lines and use the pressure tool to change the thickness at certain points to make the line look much more natural and hand drawn. Vector layer is usually used in line art but it COULD be used if you didn't have a tablet to do hair like this. it would just take a super long time!
