Thanks to a post by Debi, I saw Margies link to some drawing tutorials about hair (

A current project needed some hair restorer so thought i'd give the draw hair in Photoshop By capriccio tutorial a go.

This is the result:

Used the smudge tool set at 5px, with maximum softness and a strength of 50 . I don't use a tablet and pen just a mouse, so had to be careful about the direction of each brush stroke. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  OPR is such a good place to learn!

I had forgotten about that tutorial until Debi's post and then thought that Capriccio's tutorial was perfect and easy to follow. Your finished restore looks fantastic! The hair looks so natural.  :wnw:

No matter how hard I try, my hair always looks like something you find on a scarecrow.
