Hair Tutorial 1 - Black Hair

Well I'm back with another tutorial..this time for hair..I've had requests for  different colours so today's is "BLACK HAIR".... I recommend using a good quality card as i do tend to lay quite a lot of colour down and you don't want it to bleed.. I prefer craftworks digital smooth but there are many other's out there...

I've used the following colours....Soft Mauve Flex Marker and the following ProMarkers.. Ice Grey 1 to 5, Cool Grey 5 and Black..and I'm again colouring the gorgeous "Smashy Bob" from Saturated Canary

don't worry if you don't have the same light to dark and if necessary build your lightest shade up first :0)

First of all I cover the whole of the area I'm colouring with Soft give's you a base layer to help blend your colours and add's extra dimension :0).... up i add the Ice Grey 1 using small flicking actions...

...I then repeat with Ice Grey 2....

..Ice Grey 3...

...Ice Grey 4...

...and Ice Grey 5...

....then to add extra depth i go in with Cool Grey 5..

i then start working back over the area repeating the colours...

..I then go in with a little Black..but not too much...

and again go over the entire image always using a flicking motion -  this will add texture to the hair as you don't want to overblend :0)

i do the next part of the hair in sections...

if it helps use one of the darker greys to add sections...

..and when your finished it should look something like this....

...i really hope you've found this useful...thanks again for stopping by..
