This week, Bert magically creates hair and fur from scratch with the pen tool and brush engine.

Bert tackles the topic of creating realistic hair and fur with Photoshop this week. First, Bert creates long flowing hair using the pen tool (for the shape of the strands), define brush preset option (to create a unique brush stroke), the brush engine (to adjust the custom brush) and stroke effect (to add effect).
