Another try at hair.

I've got no idea how it got turned sideways.

Now that's a phenomenal improvement! It's not that what you were doing before wasn't asthetically pleasing, but it didn't quite look natural. This, however, is light, flowing, soft and elegant-a lovely head of hair.

Excellent! Now draw brunette and then red. This is a great improvement and I'd say that you have it down. How are you at water?

Never really tried water but I'll give it a go as soon as I figure out how to draw red and brunette hair in graphite. Provided of course you're not screwing with me. Ha ha. One thing is when I scan these pics. or photograph them they tend to lose some of the contrast due to the darks being flushed. I tried to correct em with a picture editor but they end up looking fake and you can tell I messed with it... Thanks for checking out the picture and comments. I'll work on the water.

No I'm not screwing with you. Red is difficult. Water can be even more so.

I can't begin to imagine red hair. I image it would fall somewhere in the grey scale near 7 or 8 if 10 is darkest and 1 is lightest??
