// EDIT // MANY THANKS FOR THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION TO :
:iconclaudelle:

1) With a brush at 100% hardness make different sized dots on a transparent background.

2) Select all with a perfect square (Shift-clique and slide)

3) Save your brush in the Edit > Define brush preset menu

4) Rename the brush if you want.

5) With the brush tool, get your new brush by right clicking on the workspace (the new brush will be the last one in the list)

6) By default, the brush will look like this when you use it.

7)In the brushes palette in brush tip shape (F5), reduce the spacing to 1%

8) Activate the "Shape dynamics" (if you have a pen tablet)

9) Finally, activate "Other dynamics" (side note: I had to also select "Control: pen pressure")

1/ With a basic brush, prepare the orientation of the hair flow
2/ With the new brush in normal mode and at 50%, apply the base color of the hair
3/ Using a bit lighter color and in "Multiply" mode at 50% opacity, color in the highlights
4/ Put the final touches with the smudge tool at 90% with a basic brush by stretching the highlights. Finish with the sharpen tool.

Argh, j'ai un soucis en revanche, dans le menu des formes quand je tape "F5", je n'ai pas la possibilité de régler le pas, juste le diamètre ;3;

Mais si, après avoir entré F5, il faut cliquer sur "forme de la pointe". Puis c'est la dernière option en bas à droite de la fenêtre des formes ^^

This tutorial works until step 8/9. when activating shape and other dynamics, you need to add more details or something, because I can't get my brush to look like the final product. :[ But other than that, it really helps! makes things much easier.

It may comes from the way you placed the dots at the beginning. I had the trouble too : depending on how my dots were placed for brush, the result was not the same ! ^^ But I'm glad this tutorial helped so much people until then :D

Almost perfect :D , you just missed the "u" in the word "por" > it's "pour". Other than that it's great ! ;)

Not long ago I tried to make a brush for hair, but when I painted with the new brush it was just making a string of dots instead of smooth lines. Apparently I was missing step 7. Now that I see what I was doing wrong I can finally start painting hair efficiently.

Merci! :) (I learned a few French words in Québec. And while that knowledge didn't really help me here, I was still able to follow your tutorial reasonably well.)

No problem, I hate french too although it's my mothertongue :D . It's a really difficult language, I do prefer english or even spanish.

I never liked Spanish as well, just as German... There aren't many languages leftover :P I do like Dutch and English. Dutch because it's easy (if you are born in Holland you are probably capable of speaking Dutch :P ) and English is just a cool language. Not that hard unless you really want to impress some important Englishmen.
