For most digital artists and graphics designers, Photoshop is the go-to software for editing and creating stunning designs. Photoshop is one of the most recognized and standard raster graphics editors, this revolutionary software was created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll and it was developed and published by Adobe. Photoshop is so popular and widely used that the name has become a verb for altering images although the software does a lot more than this. You can use Photoshop tools to create, edit and compose raster images with photoshops features like color models, alpha compositing and it can also edit and render text graphics, 3D graphics, video, and vector graphics although its capabilities are limited in these areas.
Amongst some of the best things you can do with Photoshop is draw and paint your character’s hair. Laying strands of hair one by one can be tasking, tiring and can make the whole process of creating art or graphics a lot longer than it should be. There are several Photoshop hair brush packs available to help take away the stress of drawing your character’s hair so you can have more time to work on other parts of creating your art that need your attention.
