Drawing Hair by Gold-Seven Drawing Hair by Gold-Seven
Over the years, probably the most often posed request has been: "Please make a hair tutorial one day!" Well, here we are. :)

This tutorial explains the basics of drawing hair and building it up out of strands and masses; it works in any medium as it explains the principle behind it rather than techniques limited to certain media.

If you're beyond beginner's level, this will probably have little new to offer to you, but still, enjoy! Hope it helps. :)

I've a big problem with drawing hair. Your tutorial didn't make me a pro, but surely it helped me to look at them from a different perspective, thanks for that :)

This was very helpful. I've been fine with straight hair, but not the curly, so now I can add more difference to my characters ^^ Thank you!

Thanks for the tutorial! (And the delightfully silly Bad Hair Day, too!)

Of course, your always-gorgeous hair work now makes me want to draw people who HAVE dark hair on one side and light on the other. Ah, well.

Your devoted fan,

I absolutely adore you for making this tutorial. Thank you!
PS: "I KNOW there are a gadzillion hairs on a head and I'm not afraid to use that knowledge!" :D Great line...
I actually share a room right now with two curly-haired girls. One has loose curls, and the other has corkscrew. Thinking about it, I'm pretty sure they both follow the rule of generally being just wavy on top, although it's a lot harder to tell with the corkscrew curls...
Again, thanks for this tutorial, I think it'll be a great help.

I've been a victim of the "There's a 100,000 hairs & I'm going to paint them" problem & have been trying to break myself of it. This is definitely a huge help. =)
