HOW TO:
DRAW HAIR
So that your character will have hair



Tutorial Author: @Dako // Category: Art
Paint Tool SAI, HUION H610PRO Tablet



Step 1
Draw a sketch base to start with. (It can be anything)
- Name the layer "BASE"




Step 2
This is completely optional, but if you want to-
You can add some other details just so it won't be boring!
Also do the following so you don't get lost;
- Name the layer with the extra details on it "DECO" or something.
- Add a folder & drag the two named "DECO" and "BASE" into it.
- Add another layer outside of the folder & name it "hair".




Step 3
Okay, so now, you're going to click to folder icon to close it, and change to opacity to something you're happy with.
I personally go with about 50%.
Optional;
- Add another layer, drag it below everything, and name it "BG"
And add a light grey to it.




Step 4
Make another layer, drag it below the layer named "hair"
And name it "ears" and start drawing a rough sketch of ears. (human ears)
and turn the opacity down to 50%, or something you're okay with.




Step 5
On the hair layer, make the sketch for the hairline.
And again, turn down the layer opacity to 50%.
Also you can darken the BG grey color, so that you can see the green better.




Step 6
Make a new layer above the layer named "hair" and start drawing a curved line going left. You should start near the middle of the middle hairline. Don't connect it though.




Step 7
To add the second line, start at the top of the previous line, but make it a little less curved than the first. Sort of follow the first line, as in the direction. And it's okay to not let the lines touch at the end. This is a sketch of the hair anyway.




Step 8
When adding the other strands, to the left of the first two strands, you should just let your wrist/hand go with the flow! At top of the hair, add a litle dip so we know where the character parts their hair. You can add the little "leafs" to it also. I think it's kind of cute so... And you can lower the folders opacity to 20% if you want to see the hair a bit more.
- Try to make both ends of the front hair (bangs in this case) looks the same (look at picture)




Step 9
Make a new layer on top of every other layer & name it "Back Hair" and draw on that layer.
I'm going for short hair, in this tutorial, so I made it shoulder length. But you can make it any length. I made the ends kind of curl towards my characters neck.
And I was too lazy to redraw it on the other side so I copy & pasted. It's up to you if you want to do the same.



Step 10.
I turned up the stabilizer to S-1, but that didn't work so I put it to S-6. I've added my lineart, cleaned up, and made a palette.
I'm not going to make this tutorial about coloring now LOL
if you want to know how to color hair- well that's a whole different tutorial!
I only came here to try and teach you how to draw hair! I hope this helped.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to message me via PM! <3

@Dako: I love love love this!
I'm finally getting to looking through this tutorial fully.

Is SAI free? How much did your tablet cost?

@Pantone SAI is not free. You have to buy it, I believe it costs $43.47 USD. And I spent about $76.99 for the tablet via Amazon.
