Ok couple questions-first-I know this has been asked before and many times before that-but has anyone figured out how to get rid of the little white horizontal lines that appear on your picture in Oekaki Shi-Painter when you scroll up and down? Or is my computer just messed up? Second, does anyone have any tips on hair? For example, realistic hair like Gig's Legolas or the cool shiny effect in all of ToraNeko's pics? Any response to this is greatly appriciated-thanks you guys

I've never had this problem before, then again, I probably fixed it before it happened. But that's my secret.

What you might want to do though, is open another window (Just something, not anything specific) then close it and look at your picture again.

But Knockoffs idea might work, too.

To get shiny hair, start with a midtone colour from your palette (not too dark, not too bright. Not using a palette? Just choose a colour form the selector that is light enough to have shadows later, but dark enough to also add highlights to), then use that as a base.

Make your shadows first, when shading always remember your light source. Also, the darker your shadows the shinier your hair will look with highlights, but make sure they blend well! Put your brush size around 6-11 (depending on the size of the hair, change to reach small places, or clean up colour leakage later)
Take the next colour darker from the midtone colour and put your first shadows in, then next colour darker than that, so on and so forth, until you're satisified, two or three shades of shadowtone should be good for normal sized hair..

When your shadows are in place, take the next colour lighter from your midtone and then shade like you did the shadows, don't go too light.
Then put your brush size at one or two, take a very light colour (maybe twoo or three shades lighter than your lightest colour so far) and do jagged or curvy lines horizontally across your hair, taking into account the direction of the hair, and the shadows, and the fact that some parts of the hair will be highlighted at different parts; if your person has bangs, put their highlight higher than other parts of the hair.

That sort of animey shiny.

Hopefully that's slightly understandable, I really wish I had pictures to go along with this... Hmm...
