Drawing Hair [Tutorial]


This is an excellent tutorial I ran across recently. I always found drawing hair an intimidating task: the movement, the softness, etc. It is not easy to be realistic when drawing long hair: the “physics” must be rendered well and this tutorial gives useful tips on how to make your job easier.

Her hair reminds of a warm, safe place
Where as a child I’d hide,
And wait for the thunder and the rain
To quietly pass me by.

Guns N’ Roses’s “Sweet Child o’ Mine” reminds us of how hair can have a deep emotional power in our memory. In drawing, hair must fit perfectly with the face: consider angles, muscles and proportions.

Learning to draw hair means mastering movement and realism in the most challenging task: the human body.
