Hey, I feel bad for asking, but your art is absolutely stunning and I was hoping that maybe you could help... basically, I struggle a lot in drawing hair. Any tips? ♡
Never feel bad for asking things! Send me all the questions!
This might be hard to explain so I apologize if it isn’t clear. But for hair, I find it helpful to tackle it as a shape. Although real hair is made up of many tiny stringy pieces, drawing a million lines doesn’t always look the best in drawings. Once you draw a head, sketch out the general shape that you want the hairstyle to have. I like to then add in shadows that make it look like smaller shapes/pieces, so there’s depth to the hairstyle. From there I draw in lots of wispy lines for flyaways, and don’t worry if it’s messy because it’s fun if it looks more organic.
Hopefully this helps, if you guys want me to make some sort of step by step tutorial then let me know, I’m not the best at explaining how I draw things 😅
