How to make hair not look too bad by agent-lapin How to make hair not look too bad by agent-lapin
Just a few tips and things concerning hair - not a tutorial or showing any methods, but I hope you guys find it useful anyway? I had more things to say last night but when sitting down to do this today, I couldnt remember most of them :C

This is just representative of my way of doing things, please don't take what I say for law; it probably is the contrary teehee.

Categories bothering me as usual, I dont like categories.

How do you do the lines in your hair? For example your piece "Golden Baby" is really beautiful and I love how you did the lines in her hair. How did you know where to place the lines?

Ok so you just draw out the hair strands instead of shading them in?

;A; I'm having trouble drawing messy hair, I feel like I'm adding too many cowlicks/flyaway chunks of hair, but I don't know why I'm asking you this cuz I don't know if you know how to help :/

I think that's an easy mistake to do when doing messy hair - to kind of make it go all over the place? My trick is to keep a regular flow but make it more dynamic. Just a decent enough amount of  flyaways, and maybe emphasis on things overlaying and going in opposing directions or something. Sorry I'm not very good at explaining! D;

Thx for the tut~ (one small question, how do u apply this to short hair?)
Reply
:iconagent-lapin:
agent-lapin Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would just do the same thing, but stop my strands higher up for short hair. For really short hair like pixie cuts I would instead rely on layering my strands a bit more instead of just pulling them downwards in curves
