Hey could you do a small tutorial on how to draw long hair? And maybe if you have time like mermaid tails? (It's hard drawing OC's cause I can't draw)
Tutorials for Hair is actually really complex for me to explain and I’m actually not sure how to put it professionally. But I did find this in my old bookmarks for basic knowledge of how to draw long hair.
As for the mer-tails, I don’t think I draw the best tails but I do have a couple little things I do when I draw merfolk.
You don’t have to proportion that way but I’ve been taught to draw the body of the tail larger to create a sort of appealing asymmetrical balanced figure. The way to balance out the top and bottom is through the hair as well, so maybe the bottom can be super extravagant and you have a large head of hair to balance it out (I suggest looking at Chris Sanders work, he can balance the figure really well such as large thighs and huge heads). It’s all cartoon styled so we can stretch shapes a lot!
A lot of times mermaid tails are very “Ariel inspired” but it is interesting to research actual mammals and aquatic creatures. If you are trying to create a mystical magical tail, there’s nothing wrong grabbing a couple qualities from a sea dragon and adding it to a dolphin tail. Mermaid tails don’t have to be as realistic as a whale’s tail, but they probably swim like aquatic animals.
I hope this helps a little bit! Just keep practicing and referencing!
