Hair Tutorial With Charcoal by disdaindespair Hair Tutorial With Charcoal by disdaindespair
Here's the hair tutorial I promised monthsss ago. This took a couple of hours to make so here's hoping it will help some people. Hit that download button to get a large, full view.

I used a charcoal pencil for this but you may also use graphite if you so desire but will have to mind the different grades. Though I must say charcoal is sooo much better-- I'm a total charcoal snob. Enjoy!

This tutorial is fantastic beyond words!!!!! I love how in depth you are, how detailed you make everything, and show your steps without bouncing ahead of the reader! thank you so much!

Your doing things, they never taught us in highschool!

I just discovered the tortilla method a few months ago and attempted it, but this is gonna help SO MUCH!

Thank you! It's nice to hear that these tutorials are handy because I spend a lot of time and preparation for them. I didn't take any art classes or had any formal training so I learned a lot from tutorials and books. I hate seeing vague tutorials or when the description is not precise-- it's like, why even bother making a tutorial if you don't want anyone understanding it? So I try my best to be very thorough and concise in my description and provide visuals for guidance. I appreciate your feedback. ;)

frisket film, so that's the trick to keeping places the same shade for hair, it would make my life so much easier!
where do you get it?

Yes, I love frisket film. I read about it from a book. Frisket film is used to mask off areas when air-brushing so a craft store that would carry any air-brushing supplies should have them. Body shops also use them to mask off parts like headlights/taillights when they paint their cars so you can probably even get it from a car detailing shop. I usually just order mine online in rolls, but you may also buy them in sheets. Another good alternative is magic tape. It has to be magic tape, no other. The only problem with magic tape is you're restricted to a small strip at a time, but it is just as effective.

Thank you for your time and effort. Great job on your drawing also. I am a "self taught" artist, just starting out and really appreciate any info I can get.
