Sculpting Gorgeous Hair

1 rating

In this tutorial I will teach you a step by step process for successfully sculpting hair.

We will start by breaking down the hair into its primary forms. Then look at how we can refine further to give our hair more character. We'll look at techniques such as splitting our hair up into parts, to have more control and also lend a nice feel for the different main sections of a particular hairstyle. We'll also be looking at variation and how that can create contrast and thus visual interest.
