Let's draw some hair by MistyTang Let's draw some hair by MistyTang
I had kind of sworn off doing "tutorials". But I was bored, and I thought that maybe I could offer a few tips that might help spark imagination and/or critical thinking. This barely even scratches the surface for hair (and hair accessories), but I think it's a good enough jumping off point. And it was fun to make, so there you go~

If you are looking for more tutorials, tips, and advice, I highly recommend the following artists --> :iconalexds1:, :icontracyjb:, and :iconcoelasquid:They are magnificent.

My main point with this (and all of my "tutorials" really) is this: everything is different, everything varies. What affects one thing may not affect another, and if it does affect something else it will not react the same way.
Observe, reference, experiment, and of course, practice.

Real life, movies, classical artwork (study the masters, it's worth it), etc.

I did make a braids tutorial long ago. Really friggen ugly art on it now, but I think it's still got some good tips, especially for beginners:

CG.

This is fantastic, full of great tips for beginners and for someone just looking to brush up or get another perspective.

Aw, thank you! I really wanted to have a good range on this one, because I've noticed a good number of tutorials like this where they only have one or two types of hair. :nod:
Glad you got something out of it!

No problem! As a curly, thick-haired chica, I was pleased with your breakdown on other hair types (curly hair can be difficult to get right).

My pleasure! Curly hair can be tough at first, but once you get it, it's like the most fun hair to draw ever. :heart:
