I can't upload this to the gallery cause it's REALLY BIG. but I thought here would be good so it can also be discussed.
One tip I want to harp on about photo manipulating is that it is much more difficult to make fake things (painted on hair, suits) to look real. So the best thing to do is paint over the real things and make them look fake and comic looking so the created stuff doesn't stand out. :)

Anyway if you have any questions please speak up, I had to squeeze this in so it might be confusing.

I'm posting this because of the large number of requests I've had for it.

The final image is not the final for this painting. I'll keep working on it, it's something that's been laying around.

Great tutorial - and done in a most entertaining fashion! But the question everyone is asking: does the real ReddEra dye her hair? (only her photomanipulator knows for sure...)

Very nice tutorial. And as well very great painting. I like the fact you use things on separate layers. Does make things easier to work with. Thanks for sharing.

Hair and no tablet... good luck. I remember those days and I soon grabbed me a stylus.

Macho... be patient. Remember, hair goes where it wants to go. Do not try and make it perfect.

Also, there are some brush sets out there that have pre-made clumps of hair, you could always see if you can find a set to get you started. But if I were you, I would jump into the deep end and get started painting hair, basically, strand by strand. Redd's and my process are pretty close. And I have yet to be dissapointed in the hair in my manips. Hell, most of the time I re-paint the eyebrows and eye-lashes.

Lookiing forward to what ever you have planned.
