Basic Hair Tutorial by the-view-to-a-kill Basic Hair Tutorial by the-view-to-a-kill
commissions are open: [link]

part two is here:
if you need some hair reference, here's 40 styles:

i drew this because of a poll i recently put out on my page :"D
sorry about the uncreative title xD i've never really done a tutorial like this before :"D

<3 although this is how i draw hair- there is no such thing a "correct" way to do it <3
everybody has their own style <3

before anyone can mention it: i will also be doing a complete tutorial on short hair, a complete tutorial on curly/thick hair, and a complete tutorial on how i color hair- this was just the basics so that you could get a basic idea of how i draw in my style <3

thanks everyone for checking in~!

xoxoxo
kat

ps: i drew all of the images in this in Paint Tool Sai <3

Great tutorial though something that I'm having trouble with is how to add detail to the hair. I can draw up to the part where the hair looks 'flat' and can go no further than that. Is there any trick to it or am I just missing something.

Great tutorial! Btw, how do you change the thickness of the lines? Do you use the pressure tool or do you just draw over them again?

Probably one of the easiest explanations on how to draw hair ever. Thank you. The two hardest things I have when drawing is hair and appendages, mainly fingers. I could never get those right at times.
