    I really don’t think your hair (especially in the second picture) is all that bad. ๐Ÿ™‚ If I were you, I’d focus on maybe making the strands thinner (perhaps a sharper pencil?) and using a kneaded eraser to brush through the whole thing in some parts, making some hairs appear lighter than others. Because no one’s hair is exactly the same color the whole way through, and of course light reflects off certain hairs more than others.

    If you haven’t already read it, I’d suggest checking out Draw Real People by Lee Hammond. He gives a bunch of good techniques for hair and all facial features – that book has helped me a ton! ๐Ÿ˜€

    So I’ve been working on my hair lately, and I think it has gotten a bit better!

    @lillian-parks03 First off, that last pic looks FANTASTIC, so I’m gonna say you don’t need much more help. But a couple things I do –

    Remember to put a part, but not an empty line down your head.

    Use lots and lots and LOTS of little lines just like the width of real hair.

    I usually smudge the tiniest bit so it doesn’t look so sharp, but softer and more flowy.

    Here’s one I did that honestly now look worse than yours, but… *shrugs*

     

    I'm short, I like words, and I love people.
    No, I didn't draw my profile pic.

    @anne-of-lothlorien That looks good too! I didn’t realize you were into artsy stuff outside of your collages. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @anne-of-lothlorien I actually think that because of the angle of the head in Lillians picture that it doesn’t need the part down the middle.

    @the-fledgling-artist – Thanks! Yup, I do pencil sketches, acrylic painting, colored pencil scenes, just a bit of everything, but not that great at anything.


    @ashira
    – Yeah, I wasn’t referring to that one specifically. Just in general when you have a part.

    @anne-of-lothlorien That’s awesome! I like those things too. I haven’t used colored pencils very much though. Have you considered posting something to the Gallery yet?

    @anne-of-lothlorien *gasp* You haven’t seen SE’s art gallery??? If you go to the blog drop down menu one of the options is “artwork” right above news. There is lots of cool art there, though it could definitely use more entries.

    @serenity Anyone can learn to draw if they have the time to practice! ๐Ÿ˜€ Though, I’m sure you’ve been able to develop lots of other skills with the time we’ve spent drawing haha.
