Hello everyone! Here's a commission I did for of his original character, Amanda in a cute nerdy get up. Thick, black frame glasses, green plaid shirt, and a very big cute ponytail, all done in the Tombow Watercolor Markers. The paper used was 140lb Canson watercolor paper. As usual, I had a lot of fun drawing the hair, don't know why hair is my favorite part to draw of characters, but it is. Hope everyone likes the picture, and thanks for the commission! I appreciate doing business with you.
Awesome work as always! You're very welcome. I'm glad you find my character's hair fun to draw. I know I need more practice drawing female hair, or just hair in general. You seem to have that down! Expect one more commission before the year's over!
Woot! Glad to hear so And sweet, I look forward to it! Oh yeah, hair in general is so much fun to draw, if you need more practice, you can always look at slo motion videos of people's hair flying in the wind or people just walking in general to get a basic idea of how to practice hair movement The moment you just look at the energy of the movement and how it moves and how it flows, is when you get a basic grasp on how to draw hair in general. It's just like with elements of how to draw water or fire. If you study it's movement and understand how the energy in the element flows or moves, then take that basic concept and imitate it in your drawing, then you can better understand how to handle the drawing of such things At least that's what helped me learn how to draw hair, fire, water, and other types of moving things; by studying the energy that makes it move.
Yeah! Ah, I see. I will do just that. I'll study the movement of hair (specifically long hair) and see how everything flows. Some of my girls look like they have a bad mullet, so I gotta get hair down! XD I'll set up a large sketch dump in photoshop and draw in different styles of hair on to a template of a bald person. I think that'll help. Thanks for the advice!
Oh that's a great way to practice! Setting up a template in Photoshop and just drawing random hair styles I remember I would just sketch out all sorts of hair over and over, then I'd wanna make it look like it had layers and wasn't flat looking so I'd make some shadows darker in other parts, then I'd start experimenting with smaller random strands flying from the sides, and of course all the art books I bought also helped too XD. But yeah you're welcome! Glad I could help
