How to draw Hair with pencils


first of all draw a light outline of the hair the next step is to use a light pencil to add first layer of shading I’m using H pencil for light shade then blending the layer next step is to add the shadows using a very dark pencil like 6B 7B or 8B shade the dark areas according to your reference photo like you can see in this reference photo I’m drawing the darkest areas first now I’m using 2B pencil to draw the strands keep one thing in mind make the strokes in the direction of hair you can see I’m making the strokes in the direction of hair as in reference photo now using a very light pencil for highlights and fine strokes the technique is to divide the hair in three different tones dark tones, light tones and mid tones I’m using an eraser for the light tones for highlights it is not necessary that you use a light pencil or white pencil you can simply erase a portion for light tones but the eraser should be a fine one like kneaded eraser or battery eraser I’m repeating the same process again first light shading then adding shadows then dark tones now doing mid tones drawing in direction of the hair is the most important thing don’t make strokes in random directions it is wrong method and doesn’t give realistic touch use any blending tool like stump or cotton bud for mixing the mid tones and dark tones but pressure should be very light you can divide the hair in different parts according to direction of strokes and shade the parts one by one keep on more thing in mind when using a light pencil for strands the pencil should be sharp and use light pressure for blending you can use this method for any type of hair the only difference will be direction of strokes method will remain the same light shades, then shadows then mid tones and hightlights just observe how I’m changing the direction of strokes according to the reference photo follow the same method always you have to observe the photo closely links of blending tools and erasers are mentioned in the description follow this method whenever you draw hair just make sure that you shade in the direction of hair and use a sharp pencils for the strands if you follow the steps which I told you then the hair will be perfect draw the strands properly for a realistic look after shading the dark tones and mid tones use a light pencil again to draw the strands use a sharp H or HB pencil for the final touch follow these steps properly and you will definitely see an improvement in your next sketch
