How to create human hair in Photoshop

One of the most regular requests we've been receiving lately is for drawing hair texture. Especially with the increasing popularity of 3D chat services like Second Life and IMVU, where members can customize their avatars.

Creating hair using Adobe Photoshop is as easy as using a brush to draw two lines and then applying filters.

After starting a new document and filling it with a dark color, take an extra soft brush and draw two lines. For starters, make one line a mustard yellow and the second one a brighter yellow or gold color. Later on you can experiment with different colors if you'd like red, blue or orange hair =)

filter noise

Next is to add noise. Type in 15% and check Gaussian and Monocromatic.

Now add a motion blur. Set it at 90 degree's and around 800 pixels. You might need to play with this a little to get the right hair texture. At this point you may also realise you should have made your two lines in the beginning a little thicker. And here is the result:

If you want to add highlights to your hair texture, add a layer on your image then add two lines of white.

Change layers to overlay and play with the Opacity until you acheive the hair highlights your after. Once again, experimenting is the key. Some people like thick highlights, others like thin.

As you can see, this is a fast and easy way to make hair templates using Adobe Photoshop. Hair templates are popular in virtual worlds like Second Life and IMVU.

Here is a video tutorial shown below for those that have broadband access. It will visually demonstrate how to make hair texture using PhotoShop.

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.

Does anyone have any good hair texture tutorials for IMVU?

I'm a developer and yea, I just wanted to know if theirs a good tutorial I could do for PSP 9 or something... 'cuz I don't have Photoshop here's my link if you have an account and would like to check my products out ;)

You would get better answers if you went into the IMVU forums and posted this question in an appropriate forum. You would be assured of getting an answer, then.

Okay, so this is a IMVU creator question?

So, I was wondering how people put images and prints onto their clothing. For example, say someones put the ADIDAS logo or Pikachu on their shirts, how would you do that? Also, are they're any good tutorials out there for basic creator stuff. I'd like to start making my own products and I'll probably be using SAI along with PSE but I have yet to find a tutorial... Help would be great :D Thank you.

Those prints are either drawn over Photoshop/Gimp, or made using real life pictures that are just edited to online versions. When you sign up for the creator programme, you will be provided with tutorials, though most of it's learnt through trial and error. I'd suggest that you start with making hair textures or accessories first, as those are generally the easiest in the lot. Clothes are relatively difficult as they require maps, and working with those maps can be pretty tedious. Trust me, I still haven't mastered the technique on clothes, though I make pretty good hair textures. As…
