Frequently Asked Questions
Hairstyle With Style is a free digital painting challenge, designed to help you paint your most stylish and artistic-looking hairstlye EVER for your digital portraits in just one week!
Painting realistic hair is one of the most often-requested tutorials I receive, so I created this challenge as a fun, free event to help a lot of digital artists build their skillsets together!
And this isn’t just a challenge- I’m giving you one of my most popular masterclasses for FREE during the week, to help you learn and practice the techniques that I use with every portrait I work on. 🙌
This Advanced Hair Techniques masterclass is over 145 minutes of video tutorials, structured into 3 modules. I’ve included downloadable worksheets, brushes, and inspiration boards to get you going even if you don’t have a sketch of a hairless head to start on!
We’ve had hundreds of students take this masterclass in the past, and it’s always been a blast for everyone involved! I can’t wait to see what you create.
You can follow along in any software! We’ll be using Adobe Photoshop (which we highly recommend), but you can follow along in Procreate, Krita, Clip Studio, Corel Painter, or any other software of your choice!
Yes, we highly recommend you use a tablet to follow along with this course!
Any tablet will do – whether that’s a Wacom, Huion, Apple iPad Pro, Microsoft, or any other make. You don’t need a professional tablet to paint professional artwork!
Nope – all lessons will be available online, so you can follow along from the comfort of your own home (or studio, if you’re fortunate enough to have one)!
It’s completely free! 🙂
If you like the masterclass and the Challenge, all we ask is that:
