TUTORIAL: Drawing Hair by Red-Priest-Usada TUTORIAL: Drawing Hair by Red-Priest-Usada
I found some time to make a tutorial covering my ways of drawing hair. I hope it can be helpful.
I just love drawing hair- especially wavy/ curly hairstyles *_*.

Note that I draw different sizes of hair strips: thin and thick. It makes hair look more natural.

Next, I 'm gonna do the following tutorials:
- cleaning pencil linearts
- colouring with copic markers
- Photoshop edits of traditional works
- the usage of textures in drawings

Credits: ~alfastock for the texture

Hmm.. Would it be ok if I make a tutorial showing the way I colour manga hair with copic markers?

um, well thing is the only things I use traditionally are pencil crayons (or coloured pencils how ever you'd like to say it :P) So a copic tutorial wouldn't help me, but it would probably help a lot of other people, thank you for you time, by the way :D

Like, I get the flow and the basic shape, but I am just confused with locks of hair flowing down together and what makes them look like clumps instead of just random lines in the hair...and like...when they are in shadow and when they are highlighted. :S

How do you draw something like flat bangs? Like what shrine maidens or the like do?
