May I ask what brush you used?
Also, what program? 
If it was in photoshop, what would be a good brush for it in paint tool sai, if you know?

This was done in Photoshop CS6 and was done primarily with a soft edge brush and some hard edge brush use for detailing.

ConceptCookie Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I removed the outline, leaving online the soft base of colors that were laid out with a soft edge brush. That's why it appears blurry =]

I'm pretty sure it's because hair should be loose, using a hard base would make it look a bit flat. This is just an assumption, though c:
