Could you do a more detailed tutorial on the mane? I love how the hair looks so flowy and individual. What size brush/transparency do you use?

Yeah, I've been needing to update my tutorials XD

 

I don't remember quite what I did then, but it looks like I used full transparency (with a tablet) and about a size 3 for the brush, maybe less depending on the size of the canvas.

Now I do individual strands on 70-80% opacity just so they're not as severe looking, or use the airbrush with 100% opacity and increased "flow"

I probably also had pressure and size ticked for my brush dynamics so it tapers off at the ends :)

How do you cut out your drawings? I noticed in your speedpaints, you shade around the drawing, then use the select-based-on-lines (I can't remember what it's called) tool to pick up the part you want. Which selection tool is it, and how do you move it onto a different layer or erase the outer parts or whatever it is you do? :\ I can never get it right.

I've actually made a tutorial on it:

I believe that it should answer your questions, if not, ask anything you are unsure of :)

That helps SO MUCH! Thanks a ton for linking me it! (I've looked through your videos but I guess I missed it >////<) Every time I used that function before, I didn't realize control made the lines more precise, so I just dragged them. I usually ended up with the lines looking like separate lines instead of one fluid line... Thanks again ^-^
