Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating hair, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
Hair seems like a very complicated thing to render and it can be, but with a…little care and the right brush it becomes a real easy task in Photoshop.…Let me show you few of the people that make up the scene in Times Square.

In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
