Hey everyone! So let me start off this post saying sorry. I have not posted because I have been very sick, my whole family has been sick. So I have been very busy dealing with that, but I am back and while I was sick i started to draw some stuff. Because when your sick you get that feeling that you are just laying in bed watching t.v. or just laying there. So I found this one blogger and on her blog, she posts things on how to draw. I am going to share one of her posts. And if you want to check out her blog here is the link⇶https://misscaly.wordpress.com
What you will need:
I used a pen for the sake of this tutorial, but I’d recommend using a 2B pencil if this is your first time.
1. Draw a large circle to mark the shape of the head (it doesn’t have to be neat because you won’t be able to see it later anyway). Then, under, draw a neck. After that, make a little dot a few units under the circle. (See where I did mine).
2. From that dot you just made, draw a little curved line to meet the edge of the circle.
4. Make another mark above the dot, then draw another curve to join the other at the edge of the circle. This forms a leaf-like shape.
5. Now, above the leaf-like shape you just made, draw another two curves to form another “leaf”.
6. And another one…
7. And another one…
8. After you’ve made 4 “leaves”, add more curves to meet the edge of the circle to create more hair waves.
9. Make the braid more detailed by adding even more curves, like I’ve done here…
10. Draw a faint line straight down from the bottom of the curves you just made.
11. On one side of the line, draw more connecting curves to create half the plait.
12. Do the same for the opposite side to complete the braid outline. Then, draw a little bow at the end, as well as loose strands of hair.
13. Time for shading. I like to work in each section of the hair individually. To do this, all you have to do is make inward flicks with your pencil/pen from the corners of each “leaf”. Try not to apply too much pressure on the flicks because you want them to look as natural as possible. Think of it as making little ticks in a workbook: apply more pressure at the beginning then less as you remove the pen.
14. Keep shading each section of the hair by making quick flicks of all different sizes. Try not to think about it too much. (Just go with the flow, man).
15. Almost there…
16. Now all that’s left to do is shade in the remaining bow and loose hair.
Now you’re done!
How did it go? I bet yours looks great!
