Tutorial: Detailed Hair part 2 by Cataclysm-X Tutorial: Detailed Hair part 2 by Cataclysm-X
...Aww Jake's shown in this tutorial. Didn't realize it until now. At least he'll help showing you how to draw fur. :happycry:

As promised part 2 of the tutorial.

Part 1 can be found here: Detailed Hair part 1!!!

I decided I won't make any more tutorials in the (near) future, unless someone pays me to make them.
I have no in-comings, and I spent many hours in creating this. I really love to help you guys, but c'mon :( I could put these tutorials in books and sell them so I finally get some money!

And people take it for granted I create these things. My eye tutorial got almost 3000 downloads while it has a little more than 1000 faves. That's not fair.

Okay, end of drama. I'm just a little upset at the moment.
Hope you'll enjoy this tutorial.

Your working is very meaningful to me. In my country, It's very difficult to buy your book (a real book). And I don't have enough money to buy one. Anyway, Thanks for your nice working. :)

Awesome! I'm currently in desperate need of some much needed hints/pointer of 'how to draw long, thick, wavy dark hair with streaks of grey in it.

Thanks again for taking the time and effort to creating these wonderfully helpful tutorials.

Challenge Accepted.

If you make a book, I'll gladly buy it. Your tutorials are the best I have ever seen! Your making the world a little better with every one of your tutorials!

Well I can understand your irritation, however, must say this will really help me. I hope. :p I am taking on a picture of a lion, so... perhaps when I'm done I shall put it up here so you can see how your advice has helped poor 'artists' like myself and feel a little less worthless? :(

You have a wonderful talent, I think you should definately get this out there and show the world you're worth an income for it. Good luck!!

Absolutely beautiful!
I'm gonna need a heck of a lot more practice to get that good...

Excellent work!

It's a shame that this isn't getting added to the favourites for people and I think I understand why -

1. People don't want to admit to using tutorials to increase their skill.
2. Their favourites folder is cluttered and disorganised, you can drag your favourites around now and add folders... it's super useful and I've started to do this with mine. :)

If you make a book I think I would buy it with the quality of work you produce, I have many art books at home. :)

When you have the time do you think that maybe you could do a detailed tutorial on doing maybe like a dog portrait tutorial? I am doing a portrait drawing of a friend's dog for the first time and am clueless as to what to do and where to start! :(

your tutorials are so helpful. and i do fav them, but sometimes i reference them more than once so you might see that it gets "downloaded" more than once per person :P

umm why don't you get some sort of a license or something for your work? like every time it is used for commercial purposes or adverts they have to pay you royalty? !! and the book idea is actually great!! that way you can get paid for your amazing work too! coz man you deserve it!!

kisshaido Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011  Student General Artist
you should really write a tutorial book, dear! I will definitely BUY IT! Because your tutorials are super helpful and I'm so thankful that I found you on dA. Many thanks for your hard effort >.< hahaha I will definitely scream and maybe hug you if I ever met you in real life. xDDDD
CelticBorealis Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2011
Fantastic tutorial, I'm just starting out with art and I've never had a lesson in my life but realised I had at least some degree of talent in it from doing scientific drawings from A-levels through to my degree. Really helpful that people like yourself take the time and effort to help folk like me out. I can really see the difference between my hair (drawings of) and yours, like the level of detail is so much greater when you look at the close-ups.

Thank you again!
MagiMarzoc Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011
