This is an example of my finished drawing in the
Drawing Light Curly Hair Lesson
You'll print out the full size reference photo (on 8 1/2 x 11 paper), and follow along with the step by step demonstration of how I drew this image.
This is a student's drawing. Vivi from Denmark completed this after going through the Overlapping Hair Lesson.
Drawing hair that has complicated overlapping sections can be difficult. Just like her, you will print out the reference photo and follow along as I take you step by step through the techniques necessary to render this section of overlapping hair.
Once you know the technique, you'll be able to draw any hair that overlaps!
