    How to do a mane/tail Lucky's way!

    How to do a mane/tail, LuckyHorseshoe's way! kindness

    1. Fill in the mane/tail with the base color
    (easy, huh?)

    2. Use your airbrush at about 25% and shade like you would on the horse, in the places where the hair waves outwards/away from the light
    (it's important to know what direction your light is coming from too!)

    3. Next, you take your brush and switch to the light-color, and take the pressure down to about 15% and shine in the places that waves inwards/towards the light
    (pretty much same as the last step)

    4. Now get the smudge brush and select the second-to-smallest one, and smudge downwards with 50%-75% pressure
    (always start at the top, and don't do zigzags!)

    5. Eventually your horse's mane/tail will look like it has millions of detailed hairs!
    (if you want, after doing it, you can lower the pressure and go over a few strands, making it even more feathery)

    If you follow these steps, you can make something like this!
    (credits to Ow's base!)
    But don't worry if it doesn't turn out great the first time, and remember this is just my way of doing it. You might even find a better way that you can work with more comfortably! Just practice and you'll get better! Good luck! Neutral
