How do you draw the way I do? I was so excited to be able to show people the progress I made. To start off, I tried drawing my hair in a straight line while using a small amount of oil and color. I tried to do this straight from the crown of my head down to my roots. I kept repeating it over and over until I really liked how it looked. I thought it was amazing how much effort was involved just to get the hair down. I added oil and color to my hair and then took a good long look at each section and tried to find a way to keep the hair still as I made my way down my arm. I then tried to add a bit of texture with a bit of color. I drew the hair down to the shoulder then worked it around my arm in a straight line. Once I got the hair down to my shoulder, I started looking around at what I wanted on the front of my head. One of the issues I ran into was trying to figure out what to draw because my hair is so short and straight. There are a lot of ways to show off a hairstyle without it being too big. I came up with the basic shape that I think makes most hair look good (straight, smooth, relaxed) and added the texture from my previous illustration. The texture is kind of a straight line for all four inches and I did some kind of tumbling at the ends. When I was done with everything I was very happy with the end result and I just had a great time sketching.
This is a very detailed picture, but I still tried to do a lot of extra work to make sure that my hair looked good. After drawing it, I added the hair for comparison.
I think I did an ok job with my hair. I was very satisfied with how I got it all and I don’t see anything wrong with it except for the slight shape issues which I corrected in the same tutorial and a post I did about how I got the pattern of hair. So now that I think about it… I can’t go back and change the proportions because my hair is so thin. I really hate straight hair like mine but I feel like I can look very cool in it. So here I am, a little bit of hair and I still can’t decide if I want to have it straight like
