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.
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.
