A Digital Coloring Tutorial: 3 by joulee A Digital Coloring Tutorial: 3 by joulee
Part three of the color-Freya-to-completion tutorial, this time the hair! Click to view--again, it's a pretty big file (about 1 MB)

Again, check out the previous steps to figure out how we got here:

Part 1 [link] - cleaning up the sketch, coloring skin and eyes
Part 2 [link] - clothing and lace

And for a similar tutorial on hair, but in Painter...
Hair Tutorial for Painter [link]

Hopefully, this makes some sort of sense... Let me know if you need clarifications! ^^

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS

Try click "Download Image". It's the button at the side, under "Remove Favourite", I think.
