Step 1 (not shown) start off with the base colour
Step 2 : tool : pen mark out the areas with pen tool & multiply layer > the areas that will be shaded the most/heavy shading you can also do this step last if it's easier,, for me it's easier to do it first so i don't pillow shade
Step 3 : tool : pen mark out the areas with pen tool & multiply layer > with v shape and w shapes (kind-of, soft v, soft w) mark out areas for basic shading of the hair, this doesn't have to be perfect.
Step 4 : tool : pen, oil brush blend the shapes from part 3 > i use an oil brush from sai to blur/blend the shapes smoothly, sometimes i'll add a .1 of blur to the layer to help smooth it out
Step 5 : tool : pen squiggle shapes on the top of the head
Step 6 : tool : pen, oil brush repeat steps 3-4, but in a bigger area, above the other layer, use a lower opacity on the multiply layer. use the blur filter at .1 or smthing to help smooth it out
Step 7 : tool : pen not really visible, but imo important, add darker shades to parts of the hair where there should be shade
Step 8 : tool : pen / blur add extra shade to the under/behind sections of hair, i really messily block it out and lower the opacity, and blur it c:
Step 9 : tool : pen lumi/shade layer from now on (except when i say ) >> bigger squiggle than on the crown of the head shape, wrapping around the head for shine, low opacity, no blend necessary
Step 10 : tool : pen messy block out big shine where lightsource comes from, blend with blur layer, large number is necessary
Step 11 : tool : pen / outline multiply layer!! under the shines, outline them and blur them greatly, creates nice effect
Step 12 : tool : pen lumi/shade layer from now on (except when i say ) Step 13>> around the face create a messy circle , except for the back, blend heavily, low opacity and also > -<;; images were put together accidentally
Step 14 : tool : pen around the area of the face and hair, create squiggle lines for hair highlights, wwww shapes are fine, wvwvwvw is also fine, messy is good. blend gently
Step 15 : tool : pen multiply layer around the edges of hair, scribble www lines in low opacity (see the bangs, end of hair) , blend veryyyy gently if u want
Step 16 : tool : pen lumi/shade layer around the edges of hair, scribble www lines in low opacity (see the bangs, end of hair) , blend veryyyy gently if u want, above step above
Step 17 : tool : pen normal layer above lineart, create strands of hair that fall out/around, varying the length/width is good if you can
Step 18 : tool : pen lumi/shade above lineart, create more shine for the hair, i repeat a few layers of shine and mess around to find good effects
Step 19 : tool : pen lumi/shade step 19 is a few layers together bc i didn't want to make this longer than it already is ;;; T__T we add sparkles to hair, more shine effects, and added some to the skirt with the same layer as i did the hair effects bc i didn't want too many different colours in the gif, as too many will make the gif grainy and looks bad
Step 20 : tool : pen lumi/shade and finally we add final highlights to the hair (yellow, white) to create sunlight more, and hair is done
3 is "missing" but it's just misnumbered from 2 +, i'm sorry for the confusion!
