Bobo is using a digital pen with a tablet. Itīs pressure sensitive, thatīs how he manages to fade the stroke at the end.

In the Brushes menu as seen in that hair demo. Click on the words "Other Dynamics" Then under the Flow Jitter option next to the work "Control" is a drop down menu. Select "pen pressure" from the drop down menu.

That worked for me, I use a very small wacom tablet. (well I barely use it, I mostly just use my mouse)

Well, stupid question but, are you using a digital pen or mouse?

Oh ok, sorry I was under the impression that you were using a digital pen after reading Corto's post about the digital pen.

Ok, well I went into photoshop and looked at how to do it with a mouse. Basically just do the same thing, except select "Fade" from the drop down menu instead of "Pen Pressure". The only problem with this is that it will only allow the stroke to be a certain length. You'll have to adjust the number to the right of the drop down menu in increase or decrease the length of the stroke.

I just tested it out and it simmulates very well what's in that hair demo. Though like Corto said, Bobo is most likely using a digital pen with pressure sensitivity allowing him to control the fade and stroke length all at once.

You should be able to acheive the same results though with a mouse, it'll just be a bit slower and annoying as you'll have to manually change the lenght of the stroke as you go

ok i've figured out it, but it doesn't look like bobo. Well if he is using a digital pen now i know why his looks that good, anyway thanks for the info Manquesa ;)
