I’m here today with a little tutorial to explain how i color the hair and the clothes practicing bright highlights.
The base concept is to go from a very dark colour to the almost totally white on the lightest zones.
I chosen the lovely Helven Samanah as “model” for my step by step
I start with her hair using this color combo: E21-E25-E29-E49-E50
First I go with the medium-light colour to define where the shadows go:
don’t blend but just continue the darker lines to make them longer:
E29 on the darkest zones:
E25 again and again just continue the darkest line to make them narrower and longer:
the same again with E21:
Finally add E50 on the lightest strands, but be careful to not blend the darkest ones, use just the point of the brush;
if you like you can also leave this strands totally white.
Add somme accents on the darkest portion of the hair with E49 if you like, be very light-handed:
Here is the colour combo i’m going to use: V000-V11-V15-C7-100:
I start again using the lightest colour (V000) to define shadows (sorry, the colour is very light :
Blend with V11
and with V000:
Again the same: V15-V11-V000:
From now on, i’m going to work on the skirt only;
add some C7 on the darkest zones:
V11 and V000
Add some extra shadows with black (100):
blend a little with yout medium color (V11):
Here i’ve coloured up the upper part too :
and here is the image all coloured up:
That’s all, hope it can be useful!
