Hair drawing tutorial

Author : Timon

Tutorial submitted on June 12, 2009

We highly recommend this great tutorial by Tomáš (Timon). Drawing hair is definitely one of the trickiest part of almost every portrait. In this tutorial, Tomáš introduces some easy and effective ways to draw wavy or straight hair or hair blowing in the wind. A huge thank you to Tomáš for this very interesting lesson.

Thank you, Tomáš! I'm working on a portrait of Miley Cyrus and got everything done except the hair. I came to a screeching halt. Your techniques sound like just what I was looking for and I appreciate that you explained it well. Your example portraits are gorgeous! If I can do it half as good as you did, I will be very happy. Thanks!

Hi! Thanks for the tutorial. It is indeed very helpful. I have a small question: Which charcoal do you recommend for drawing hair?

Hi, I have used leads and several kinds of charcoal from Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth named 'Natural drawing charcoals'. They are suitable for this technique as well, but to achieve better results, I prefer soft ones which leave really black and bold trace. As for me, the best one for hair is a black pastel chalk from a KOH-I-NOOR TOISON D'OR package (these are actually not charcoals :roll: ). I have a package of six colours, so I use the black.
