How to Create Facial Hair in Photoshop

On this video tutorial Aaron Nace from Phlearn demonstrates how to improve a beard or even create one using Photoshop.

Nace starts with creating a single hair and makes it into a brush which he uses to paint hair on the face. Before he actually uses the brush he makes some important changes to the brush menu which gives you much more control on the way the brush actually work on the image.

This is not the first time we look at interesting techniques for adding a beard. Earlier ths year we published photographer Glyn Dewis’ video on “How to Enhance Eyes (and Create realistic Beards) Using Photoshop” which gives you a different perspective on the subject.

You can find many more Photoshop video tutorials on LensVid’s Photoshop section (and you can find a lot more Phlearn videos on our special Phlearn subsection).
