Hello there all :)
I am here to share a tutorial with you, Polychromos Hair.
I use my pencils alot for hair, I really like the fading out quality they give, and I hope you will find this small tutorial useful.
these are the colours i went for for the hair, I always place them on tissuepaper to stop them from rolling all over my desk :)
I start with the darkest shade, and then colour with the lighter ones as i go.
The lines should follow the flow of the hair
this is down to my lightest shade so far, and as you can see I decided to go even lighter once the hair were all done in those three shades
I added this light magenta all around the hair, to make a more subtle flow into white; I do not however want it to be all perfect, I want the lines to be strands of hair - to get better texture.
And just quickly showing how this same style is used in other parts of the image, using these 4 colours on her clothes :)
As you see, the same basic build-up, only difference is that here I dont keep as much of the pencil-lines visible.
And here is my finished card :)
As you see I finished up the image in some of the same colours, just various shades :)
I hope you enjoyed,
and I hope you share your projects with us!
