how to hair tips


Tumblr makes it look really low quality, but they’re fine if you click on them~ :)

Tutorial time! Here’s a quick hair tip tutorial for eat-my-shxrts (I’m working on the eyes/facial features one, but since I finished this one I thought I’d post it :) Hope this is helpful, I wish I was better at explaining how I draw XD

I also included a process gif! Featuring some of my faves with varying hairstyles~ :) <3


There was an attempt


@skipoverthispls asked me how I did the hairline for gahyeon so I made this crappy how-to thing.

Doing this sorta thing is actually really useful, not so much for other people, but for me, because sometimes I’ll do something that I consider really good, but then I’ll immediately forgot how I did it. 

Granted, I’m no hairline master, but this is better than what I’ve done in the past.

I guess if anyone wants to ask me how I draw something in particular, send an ask or whatever and I’ll try and get to it :)


In a vague attempt to feel productive I thought I’d make up a quick and dirty “How-to Draw Braids” thing. I hope you can read my horrendous handwriting…

I hope it’s useful to someone! Braids are so much fun to draw, honestly, and the world deserves more art with pretty braids in it.

Oh, and if you want to draw Elsa-style braids, simply draw the pattern upside down. Easy-peasy!

Let me know if this helped! Show me your results! And remember, practice makes perfect. :)

Hello, I have always loved the Samoyed breed but have wondered how they are as pets. I know they're known to be heavy shedders, and some tips on how to deal with that hair would be very much appreciated! I have a Westie right now, but I used to own Spitzes and I'm pretty used to the shedding :)

Heavy shedders indeed! While different Samoyed owners will report different levels of intensity - and it will vary depending on gender, neuter/spay status, and time of year - you’re still definitely looking at heavy shedding. If you aren’t prepared to… 

  • desensitize your puppy as young as possible to the grooming process 
  • brush daily during certain times of the year, several times a week the rest of the year
  • vacuum a lot
  • have hair on your furniture, clothes, eyes, inside of your mouth
  • pay a decent amount for an experienced groomer semi-frequently OR do your own set up 

…then you should not get a Samoyed. 

As with the varying opinions on intensity of shedding, there are also varying suggestions on how frequently you should take your Sammy to the groomer (or bathe them yourselves), but it should be at least twice a year for the puppo’s health. More information here, from the Samoyed Club of America:  

The #1 best way to keep shedding down… is with frequent line combing and brushing. Do not ever shave your Sammy unless it is necessary for medical reasons. Do not ever use a Furminator, please, it will damage his coat. If you want to do your own grooming setup, here are the best videos & resources I’ve found online. These are all done by the Samoyed Moms who consist of some owners and breeders. 

Anyway, that’s grooming. If you’re more interested in what they are like as pets, then I would turn to YouTube videos and the Samoyed reddit. I would also recommend contacting the SCA and seeing if you can attend some shows, get involved with rescues, or even meet a breeder just to get to know the dogs.

Every Samoyed I’ve ever known has a very relaxed, polite temperament. They are not easily bothered or stirred - they politely and gently remove themselves from the situation instead, if necessary. Important things to know about them as a breed are the following: 

  • They NEED to be with you and your family. While they are an ancient breed, they are more people-oriented than, say, huskies. Some are cuddle bugs, some are less so because they get hot, but they are still not the type of dog to do well being left alone for long periods of time. If you do that, there is a good chance there will be some destruction as a result of boredom and potentially anxiety. 
  • They are independent thinkers. Training will be different than other dog breeds. Once they’ve learned a new trick, it’s better to generally move onto something new than to keep repeating something they’ve already learned. It’s boring and they’ll definitely let you know. 
  • They are, in general, jokesters. Some breed judges prefer Samoyeds that aren’t perfectly behaved in the ring because they feel that better represents the breed as a whole.

In essence, the Samoyede people that the breed is named after bred and raised them to work independently from humans. Typically, they’d have several dogs and one would be the “lead” dog that took some instruction from the humans. That dog would then lead the others to their tasks for the day - herding, pulling, what have you. At the end of the day, though, they returned home to their people, often to snuggle up and help keep everyone warm. Notice how throughout their typical day they are either with other dogs or people, though! They don’t like to be alone. 

Finally, if you keep the giant wads of fur you’ve brushed out of your Sammy, you can do as the Samoyede people did and save their fur for spinning and knitting (another trait they bred for was their fur texture!).

How To Girl: Highlighting and Contouring #HowToGirlNyc

anonymous asked:

Hi Seiyoko! I'm a huge fan of your art how you you animate. If it's not too much to ask, could you share some tips on how you animate your character's hair? I believe it's called the seaweed effect but it's so confusing to animate for me. D:

Yeah I’ll try my best!

of course hair comes in lots of different types! The seaweed approach only helps me with smoother hair :^)! keep it in mind and try out different hair!

I think of it like a cycle of pushes up and down, the source stays in pretty much the same place but it changes which direction it goes depending on what force is being applied where. The hair is just kinda subject to the air blowing.

You should keep in mind momentum and that to change direction it will need to slow down a bit. no part of the hair has a fixed point (except the source), and each part will go up and down in time!! it’s almost like hills and valleys going thru the hair (I just think of longitudinal waves lol)

If it still isn’t clicking, just copy frames here, and try to keep track of the movement! 

keep in mind this doesn’t work for all types of hair, but it works for a lot of other objects! I use this for flags, steam/smoke, skirts, etc.

good luck!!

burned-toast  asked:

in your art tutorial (which was awesome and helpful btw) you had an example which i believe was the last one of a person with a long ponytail and honestly the way their hair looks in that fascinates me so i was wondering... how did you do the thing ? im rubbish at hair .

First of all thanks! I’m going to try and roll both a tutorial as to how I draw that particular hairstyle as well as an overall hair tutorial, aight?

when it comes to that sorta thing I draw a rough sketch first (sometimes i don’t out of habit, but with unfamiliar or more complicated hairstyles it never hurts to have your hairline down

I also lay down where the parts in the hair are (rella specifically has kinda roundish bangs along her forehead)

ok so a lot of more anime-ish hairstyles can be broken down into different parts

rella has:

  • the bottom part of her hair (red, which is a little closer to her skull and comes off of it a little bc That’s Just What Ponytail Hair Does unless it’s a really tight one or something)
  • a braid along each side of her hair that meets around in the back (blue, it’s relatively stylized because I don’t want to draw a lot of strands All The Time)
  • the Rest of It (green) which is essentially just hair going from the part into the braid or into the other side of her head
  • she also has a ponytail

the way i stylized it basically makes her hair really ribbonlike in shape but it’s also really thin in shape and texture so it’s easier to play with in terms of shape and volume

if i were to make it thicker hair, this is how i’d do it: a lot closer to tufts as opposed to strands, though when shading, i’d follow more or less the same ribbon shape (with respect to the bumpy shape of the tufts of course)

when i’m done with all of that, i normally merge my sketches and make them transparent and i take a brush and start lining (this one i just used is this one, it’s my only downloaded brush pack and that’s just because i’ve been using it for so long tbh)

little detail things that i do:

  1. divide the hair into mini strands as you see fit, define it!! especially on shorter, tuft-ier hair (like in rella’s bangs). generally i define it more where more shading is, because that gives me more of a baseline as a whole.
  2. hair is like fabric but it’s on your head. and your head is round, so rumple it! make it come up OFF of the head, make it emphasize the shape of it! it’s a wonderful way to make it realistic just by making it a little ruffly
  3. hairlines are not always super clean cut. jag em up! show where individual follicles are being pulled if u Gotta. 
  4. for the back hair: pretty much always show it going into the background. the more you indicate that there is DEPTH to the hair, the better it works.

more detail things but more actual bodies of hair:

  1. do whatever you can to continue to indicate that the hair is 3-dimensional. make it twist around corners, make it move and spill together. have fun this is the payoff
  2. separate it! it’s a very art nouveau look, plus it makes it look to actual hair with strands moving and doing their own thing
  3. have hair not only break away from the bigger body, but also have it interact with obstacles. hair does that

rella has auburn hair, and i just randomly picked out some colors that seemed legit, if not a little ugly

screen layer + multiply + overlay + a background to set the mood

im making a palette out of this

ok with the base colors all flatted in, i’m finally ready to actually…color the hair

there are several ways to go about it this time around i’m blocking it large areas with (circular) gradients. it’s a trick i picked up from studying how himaruya (the artist for hetalia) does things and I think it lends itself pretty well to a silky hair texture.

i also took her skin color and used it right next to the bangs to make them look more transparent

i took the highlighter color from the palette i made and blocked in some soild shadows on a multiply layer. i’m probably going to change up the colors after a bit to make it look nicer, but for now, this will do just fine!

i did the same with the highlight and an overlay layer. it looks a little off right now, but i can always change it later.

i ended up not using the palette as much as i thought (which is ok! it happens) and i locked the layer with the shading on it so i can just go in with a light blue instead, so that it looks more unified!

and there!

this last bit is optional because black lines look fine but a style thing to consider is coloring the lines, which i did here:

and yeah that’s how i do hair

ficlet: all the glory that i bare (even/isak)

Summary: Isak buzzes his hair off on a dare. Even suffers through the five stages of grief. (a.k.a., yes, I wrote a ficlet in response to Tarjei’s new haircut. Sorry not sor—you know what, yes, actually I am very sorry.) Can also be found on AO3 here.


When Isak walks through the door, Even does a double take.

Okay, maybe it’s more like a quintuple take. Who’s counting?

“What did you do to your hair?” he blurts, and it maybe comes out a little sharper than intended, because Isak winces pretty hard at his tone.

But…he just walked through the door…like that. Like it was no big deal. Like the Earth hadn’t just shifted on its fucking axis. Like Even’s entire reality wasn’t suddenly crumbling around him.

So, yeah. Faced with this…this travesty…Even can hardly be blamed for his reaction.

“Is it bad?” Isak asks, rubbing the back of his neck sheepishly. “We got so drunk last night, and I can remember Magnus daring me to buzz it off but I honestly don’t remember actually doing it.”

Even’s going to find Magnus. He’s going to find Magnus, and he’s going to have words with him. Man to man. Dude to dude. Fist to face.

Okay, maybe not that last one. Even’s not a violent guy.

But still.

AN: This fic was going to just be Chloe’s but then I jumped in to help her and it became a collab. You’re welcome. There’s just not enough Hodgman stories in the world.  Contains masturbation (both), Oral (female receiving), ‘Skype Sex’, inspired by Chloe’s truly embarrassing events at a pizza restaurant, except hers didn’t end this well. 

She couldn’t really be counted as the ‘new’ waitress anymore, seeing as she’d worked there for four months now. But in those four months business had spiked. People just adored her service.

Parents admired how well she treated the children.

Kids loved when she brought over crayons and drawings she’d printed herself.

Staff took advantage of the fact that she did many tables at once, leaving them to stand idle and chat while still getting the wages.

Teenage girls relished in the times that she would make chat and give advice on everything from lipstick shades to what has the most or few calories in.

Teenage boys simply came for the skirt that she wore showed just enough to tease without being slutty, her legs on show and her top fitted, pens lined along her top pocket.

Dave, however, had entirely different reasons for being here. He loved how her smile lit up when she was left a good tip on a bill. He loved how her hair fell perfectly around her face when she would let it down after shutting hours, cleaning the tables and singing her heart out to the music blasting. He loved that she worked overtime at the little shop, so that he could casually swing back and say hi.

He loved her.

He also hated that he was so sentimental about it and he couldn’t just think like the rest of the male population thought about her. Which he hated too.

Ties That Bind Us

Part 4:

As the days went by the changes to Lance became more and more noticeable.
And Keith found himself finding it harder and harder to ignore their kiss.
Lance yawned as he entered the kitchen in a tank top and shorts, causing Keith to nearly choke on the food goo he was eating for breakfast.
The blue freckles were splattered across his cheeks and nose, even appearing in his bare shoulders, arms and legs, glowing softly in the dim light of the hallway.
His hair had started to turn a dark blue at the routes with only the tips remaining the original brown.
However it was his eyes that really caught Keith’s attention.
They had stayed that beautiful blue, however he had gained swirls of dark and pale greens that intertwined like a bottomless ocean.
All and all Keith was completely helpless to the beautiful blue paladin.
“Morning.” Lance nodded taking a seat so close that Keith could smell the clinging scent of face mask on his skin.
“M-morning Lance… erm did you sleep well?”
Lance just shrugged pulling a bowl towards him and started eating “I guess so. Had a really weird dream.”
“Weird hmm? What was it about?” Keith asked trying to tear his eyes away from the other boy’s mouth.
“I can’t really remember it, I just know it must of been weird because I felt super strange this morning.”
“Strange how?” Keith asked leaning closer.
Lance slowly shook his head “I don’t know… like I just feel like I’m off today…or…”
Lance trailed off blinking slowly up at Keith with an odd expression.
He suddenly wrapped his arms around him and moved so he was sitting on the others lap.
“L-Lance!” Keith stuttered turning red “what are-” he was cut off by Lance pulling his face towards his and kissing him.
Keith made a small noise of surprise as Lance’s tongue made its way into his mouth.
This wasn’t like before.
This was different then their last kiss this was way…
Keith wrapped his hands round Lance’s back pulling his body closer to his own.
If there was a God then this moment would never end.
“Hey guys wh- ew ew ew why in the kitchen!” Pidge had walked in on them closely followed by Shiro.
Keith practically pushed Lance off him in surprise.
“I erm.. I can explain!” Keith yelled while Lance nuzzled his face into Keith neck.
Shiro coughed awkwardly “though I’m happy for you guys… but the kitchen really?”
“Good morning Paladins. I hope you are all well this fine morning.” Coran chirped as he pushed past Shiro and Pidge who were frozen on the spot.
Coran joined them in their state of shock when he saw the position the red paladin and his grandson were in. His eyebrow twitched as he smiled and shifted to gain a few extra inches before he walked over to tower of Keith.
“Care to explain?” Coran asked with strained ease.
“I swear nothing happened… ok we made out a bit but like Lance was saying he felt strange then he kissed me and-” Keith was silenced when Coran held up a hand.
“Strange how?” He questioned dropping down to one knee and carefully turning Lance to face him.
“I don’t know… we never got round to that part.” Keith blushed even redder from the look Shiro gave him that just screamed that he was in for a lecture later.
Coran placed the back of his hand on Lance’s forehead and frowned slightly. “I do believe Lance has the start of the dizzies.”
“Whats dizzies?” Pidge asked.
“It’s something that young Altean get. Tends to make them very erm…” Coran gestures to the intertwined Paladins “well you can see for yourselves. But along with this it’s normal for them to lose all sense of balance, control over shape shifting, and even be a bit queasy… however… I am not sure how Dizzies will effect someone who is half human.”
Coran gestured for Shiro to come over and he did as asked.
“Are humans supposed to be so warm?” He asked.
Shiro placed his flesh hand on Lance’s forehead “no their not. He had a fever.”
Keith looked down at the cuddling Lance only now noticing the paleness beneath his blue freckles.
How his brown tipped hair was plastered to his forehead with sweat.
How his beautiful eyes were closed, his face scrunched up in pain.
Most importantly the large amount of heat radiating off him as he cuddled into Keith chest.
