How to Draw Hair: Recap

Wow... That's a LOT of information! But now that all 3 steps have been covered in depth let's take a moment to do a quick recap on what we've learned. 

Step 1: Sketch

 

Sketch in the hair, focusing on shape, flow and movement. Remember, less is more in the beginning, so keep it simple.

Step 2: Define

 

Increase detail by splitting up the larger chunks of hair into smaller locks, then define it with Weighted Contour Lines.

Step 3: Render

 

Render out the hair to add volume, depth and high level detail.

That's all there is to it folks! 

 

Once you’ve gone through these 3 stages you’ll know exactly how to draw luscious looking hair for all your comic book characters. AND the really cool part is that now you can take this method and use it to draw up every other hair style you think of. So go ahead and give it a try!

 

There is a lot of valuable content in this tutorial but at the end of the day it all comes down to these 3 steps. If you learn it and if you practice it, drawing hair will become an enjoyable pastime instead of a dreaded necessity.

 

Drawing hair will become a breeze for you... But I’m only here to serve as the guide by your side, you’ll still have to walk the path.To get better at anything you need to practice it. Remember that repetition is the mother of all SKILL.
