thank you ooooh my god!!!!
ok so my settings change A LOT, so there arent really any concrete ones but this is what i have atm
i also have a LOT of brushes that i use for painting but i dont think you were asking about those
i THINK the one on the left is by smallcub but im not entirely sure. i also just use the default brushes that sai gives you a lot of the time
HAHA WOW OK *sweats nervously*
Uh I did this all digitally but the same principles still apply also disclaimer 99% of everything I know is self taught so you know take it with a grain of salt.
I’m not good with words so here’s a bunch of pictures that hopefully will make sense???
When I draw hair it’s at first just big chunks. I keep in mind of the hairline and the direction of the hair part.
I consider the direction of the hair and split the big chunk of hair into smaller chunks of hair.
And from there I add in details.
And we got hair???? Yeah
Now for some talking about DETAILS
The way I draw hair is pretty damn stylized and almost never drawn “neat”. Random strands of hair stick out or fly all the fuck over the place and the hair is kind of lumpy.
I do this cause 1.) I fucking can and 2.) idk unless you have godlike hair people’s hair never sit still in one place so I think adding all that shit gives the hair more personality (as much personality as hair can get anyway). Plus, it helps make the hair look like it has volume and thickness.
Also the lines for the hair vary and thickness. In general, I use thin lines for small details and thick lines to make a particular part of the hair to stand out or to indicate the big chunks of hair I started out with before drawing in the details. Also for the hair at the back of the head I use thinner lines. To do this traditionally, I use a bunch of fucking pencils of different sizes and darkness and erase a lot. I use a 0.5 mechanical pencil for the initial sketch/thin lines and a 2B pencil to add some razzle dazzle.
You can’t really tell from this crappy photo but it’s there alright.
And to wrap up this crappy hair tips and tricks here is a gif me and the hairz
Annnnnnnd I hope that helps!!!
