Decide which face view you'll be drawing: Front, Side, Quarter,
Which direction will the hair will go? Left? Right? Up?
Down? Angles? (Draw light arrows if you like)
What length do you want the hair? Short? Long? or Medium-length?
here will touch on various aspects of what I've mentioned
in the questions above. Notice they have different head
views and different hair directions. They also have different
lengths but you won't really see that till the next page.
once you decide on those questions above - on to the next
step! (Click on picture for larger image, btw)
To draw spiked hair, the lines come together to a point.
Think of them as triangles or bent triangles in the case
of the side view example. Remember: long hair = long pencil
strokes; short hair = short pencil strokes.
Follow the examples to the right of the drawings for certain
hair styles. Notice that some spikes are thick and some
are not. Try to vary the thickness as much as possible to
On the quarter view; to draw the hairline just draw short
lines and/or small triangles and "w"-like lines.
Or draw one straight line of you prefer.
Finish off the hair: add any extra details, jewelry, hair
lines, shadows, etc. Ink the drawing and then erase the
pencil lines after the ink has dried. You're done!
Now, that wasn't so bad was it? And don't forget to experiment,
practice, and have fun! Emphasis on "practice".
