So I have been struggling with drawing hair for quite some time. This tutorial was created to get things straight in my head. I still need to learn to shade properly but I think I am more comfortable with the shape of hair.
After drawing a quick head/ face I drew some basic shapes to guide where the hair will end. This determines the shape and length of the hair.
Where the shapes end I draw the individual strand tips of the hair.
Now it is just a matter of connecting the tips to the scalp.
I then quickly put some basic shading in. Just 2 tones this time.
Finally I tidy up the line art and add colour.
My current weaknesses.
Shading still needs work.
I need to focus on getting the eyes looking better.
