Default how to give your [virtual] pet a makeover ~ yep, this is a guide on how to do edited hair :3 [PICTURES]

Hey! (:

As most of you know, there are times in life when you need to edit hair on your webkinz. Okay, so most of us haven't had those times. But if you're a WNTMer, graphic artist, or just want to fool around with Paint or GIMP and give your pet a rockin' do, then this is for you.

I've been experimenting with different hairstyles, and here are some I've done of my lil' horse ShimmerStar;

You Need:
*GIMP or Paint.
*Basic GIMP or Paint skills. (cropping, pencil tool, etc. Just simple stuff.)
*A picture or screenshot of the pet you're making over. Solid backgrounds help.
*A computer. (just kidding. )

I also used my graphics tablet, (made by Wacom) it makes it easier to draw, but this is not needed at all. (; But if you have one, I recommend using it.

Just a note, I'm not familiar with paint at all, partially because I have a really old version and don't really use it much. I'm fairly certain however that you can do all this on paint, but if I'm wrong about something, please correct me. (:

How to Make your Hair (;

Step #1:
Figure out what hairstyle you want your Webkinz to have. Either work from a picture, or a mental image. I just usually do the latter, but it might help to have a picture of what you're going for. (: I've decided to make a pinky-purple bob.

Step #2:
Upload your image, and crop and resize if necessary. A solid background helps for drawing in my opinion, but if you have a crazy-colored one, go for it. (: I used the t-shirt designer, and cropped it so there was only white to showcase her hair.

Step #3:
Prepare your image for drawing. Use the eyedropper tool to get your pet's color, and use your pencil tool to draw over any hair that might get in the way of your pet's bangs to 'erase' them, and any hair that sticks out to the side.

Step #4:
Before we start drawing, you need to select two colors. Color #1 is the color you want her hair. Color #2 is a darker shade of the same color used to outline and draw details. This color should be quite dark, you should be able to see it, but it shouldn't make the hair look 'striped.' Just play with it, and you'll find two you like together. (oh, and make sure the color doesn't blend in with the pet.)

Step #5:
Now we get to draw! First of all, zoom in to 400%. I always start with the forehead, so that means bangs first. Using Color #2, start to outline the bangs--don't fill them in though. (see why we cut away some of her mane? They would show on the right side.)

Step #6:
Next, start drawing the outline of her actual hair. Remember, hair should go in front of her shoulder AND behind it. There shouldn't just be one strand over her shoulder, just like the hair should also go in front and behind the ears. Again, don't fill it in. (:

Step #7:
Now we can fill it in! Use color #1 for this. You don't have to be exact with this, but be especially careful around the lines of your bangs. Using bucket fill really helps, and touch it up with pencil where it missed.

Also, with color #2, draw a line for her part to make it more realistic if you want. (:

Step #8:
We're almost done! Using Color #2, make lines in the hair to add realisticness. Make the lines flow with the hair. If you have a picture of the hairstyle, copy the way the hair flows, or just eye it.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step #9:
This is the finishing touch! : D Using color #1, make it a few shades lighter--we're going to use this to make highlights to make it look shiny. White looks to harsh, so just lighten your original color.

Decide where the 'light' is coming from. If it's coming from the left, she'd have more highlights on that side than the other. Stroke the color on right next to the lines you made earlier with color #2.

See how much lift that gives it?


And there you have it, edited hair! (:
Feel free to add suggestions or ask for clarification if I confused you. xP Enjoy!

I just might have to try this. Then, since Leah wants to join my next WNTM season, we wouldn't have a major problem with her doing makeovers. xD
