If you’re looking for an easy way to draw hair, this is the way to go.
This is a good way to draw hair for beginners who don’t have a good feel for it yet.

It’s a great way to get a feel for what’s going on in the world.

The pen pressure size is turned on.
I think it is easy to draw with a pen (in and out).

First things first: decide on a hairstyle.

The first thing to do is to decide what kind of hairstyle you want. (In this case, we’ll draw a bob haircut.)

Draw an “X” at the whorl.
Draw a bunch of hair around the X.
If you want to make the hair bunches finer, use a smaller brush size, and if you want to make the hair bunches look bigger, use a larger brush size.

 

The hair is drawn so that the head is covered with hair in order to create a good volume.

Once the hair is drawn, lower the opacity and reposition the layer.
Next, add a new layer and trace the entire image with a thin line.

 

I’m going to try to be more hairy.

When you’re done tracing, move to the head layer and erase the lines, and you’ll end up with something like this

If you want to make the hair look tighter, draw a fine line on the tip of the hair.

You can draw a line from the head if you like, or you can “try to reduce the line at the end of the hair”.

If you want to make it tighter, you can fill in the lines with a little black like this to make it more crisp.

 

Check the whole thing.

Once you have completed the process so far, you should check the whole thing once.

This is the most important part of the process, so we recommend that you don’t skip it.
You can stop your hand and look at the balance of the character from a distance, or you can leave it for a few hours to a day to check the balance.

In the illustration I drew this time, I thought it would be cute if there was more movement in the hair, so I added it after letting it sit for an hour or so.
The previous version is fine, but this one has more movement and is more complete.

Advice

Here’s a tip: Rather than drawing the illustration from the front, it’s easier to draw and balance the image if you angle it slightly to the right or left.
It’s a great way to get a sense of what’s going on in the world of art.

 

Finally.

How did you like it?
Did you manage to draw it well so far?

I think this method can be used for “bob”, “long”, and “short” hairstyles, so please decide on your favorite hairstyle and give it a try!
