How To Draw Hair

You may find the idea of drawing hair very difficult, you are not alone. It's easy to see all the details and textures of the hair and assume that it would be difficult to capture them in a drawing.

But we can simplify the process by making drawing the hair a little more manageable.

In this video tutorial, you will see how to draw hair, so you can follow these simple steps and apply them to any type of hair you want to draw.

Hair is very important to our characters as it gives them their own personality, so drawing hair exactly as we envision it can be quite a challenge.

But there are many different approaches we can take! For me, the most important rule is to understand what I'm drawing, so that I don't get lost halfway.

If the thought of drawing hair overwhelms you, you're not alone. It's easy to see all the detail and texture in the hair and assume it must be difficult to capture it all in one design.

But it doesn't have to be overwhelming and we can simplify the process, making drawing the hair a little more manageable.

Before we start the hair drawing process, we need to make sure that the head structure is drawn in place. The structure of the head dictates the shape and flow of the hair and must be defined before you start drawing the hair.

Assuming the head frame is in place, the first step is to define the outer contour or hairline. This includes the lines that form when the hair overlaps the forehead, parts of the face and shoulders.

In many cases, the hair is loose from the skull and can overlap much of the face. Of course, each hair is different and the outlines that are drawn at this stage will be different for each subject.

We will draw the contour lines lightly and loosely with a harder and lighter 2H pencil. We are careful not to press too hard on this harder pencil, as this can cause an indentation in the surface of the paper.

While we're drawing the contour lines defining the general shape of the hair, we'll also draw smaller shapes for the strands of hair. Strands of hair naturally build up and create a shape (what I call a “tuft”).

It clearly doesn't make sense to draw every strand of hair. This would not only take an incredible amount of time to achieve but would also result in very unnatural looking hair.

Instead, we have to think of hair as a form. We'll define the volume of these shapes in the next step, but for now, we'll focus on defining the shapes.

We understand shapes by how light interacts and behaves on them. We understand light through the use of value. Therefore, we understand the shapes of a design through the use of value.

Value is the darkness or lightness of a color. Placing dark and light values on a subject tells us the intensity of the light and the nature of the shape.

We need to consider the values and tones seen in the hair and include them in our drawing in order to communicate the volume of the hair.

In most cases, a full range of values is present. That means we're likely to find the darkest shadows, the brightest highlights, and the mids within a hair.
