Please help create hair out of thin air.
My method was:
- selected left side of face and mirrored
- cloned the hair
My problem is:
- hair looks unnatural
- need to create hair on the kid's head so his head doesn't look so big
I am grateful for any help.
The first thing that pops in my mind is find a photo of somebody with dark hair and copy the top of the hair from it. It's easy enough to convert brown hair to black if needed.
Otherwise, there are some brushes in Photoshop called "stipple" brushes. I think the 19 pixel stipple brush is pretty good for either brushing or smudging some new hair. For smudging (which is how I'd do this photo), start with strength of about 50%. You can also experiment with brush dynamics.
I copied the left side hair to the right and also the eyebrow and then painted in the missing bits.
I then used Nagel’s hair brushes. Available here
Unfortunately these brushes are CS only so I used ABR Viewer to convert them to PS7.
I guess I don’t get all the features of these brushes by doing this but they still seem to work OK.
Hope this helps
