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!

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

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.

Thank you! I'm also a self taught artist so I know how it is. I started doing video tutorials and posting them on Youtube if you're interested. :D
