How to Draw Hair

Hair, like anything in nature, is far from perfect. Those of you who have experienced a bad hair day know that the hair doesn’t always fall into place. Some hairs stand out from the head and others extend past the hairline—it’s just a fact of nature.

In this lesson, Darrel critiques a student submission. Although a very good drawing overall, Darrel saw some room for improvement in the hair and decided to use this example as a teaching experience.

You’ll learn how to appreciate and capture the variations you’ll find on all of your subjects. Whether it’s a stray hair, a part, or an varied scalp line, you’ll gain the skills to properly render these opportunities for capturing character.
