Are you stumped when it comes to drawing beards? 😵
I hear ya!... For a long time I was also perplexed when it came to depicting facial hair on my comic book characters.
What really got me was the shading!
I had so much trouble trying to render my beards in a way that looked correct, and gave volume to their overall shape and style.
Eventually I learned a few tricks to get my beards looking nice and bushy – and I’d like to share some of them with you here today.
Over the course of this 2 hour + Comic Art lesson, I’ll show you my step by step approach to constructing the basic shape and style of three different beards.
You’ll learn the entire process for defining your beards as I show you how to render each clump of facial hair to achieve a layered effect that describes them with mass and volume.
I’ll also explain the advanced principles of rendering and how they come into play when creating a variety of colors and tone for your character’s facial hair.
I hope you enjoy this comic art Tutorial and that you get a ton of value out of it.
