How to Paint Curly Hair

Recommended Posts

Painting hair is difficult because many people do not take the time to look at hair as a combination of shapes, but rather attempt to paint every single strand. If you look at someone's hair, you will start to notice that hair seems to fall in pieces or chunks: the bangs and every layer of hair has a different shape to it. Once you are able to understand hair in this way, you will be able to paint curly hair masterfully.

Study the image of the subject or the live subject of whom you are painting the curly hair.

Dip your brush into any shade of paint which you want to use in the hair.

Add a few drops of water to the paint to thin it down.

Paint the basic shapes of the hair onto the head very lightly to capture the nature of the hair. Because this is curly hair, it will probably be somewhat round and large in shape. Focus on the top of the head and note the way that the hair swoops in either direction - where it is parted, whether it falls flat, and in what direction it moves.

Paint the general shapes that comprise the sides of the hair. Focus on the left and right sides individually, observing the differences. Leave the finer details for later.

Use multiple shades of color to create realistic looking hair. Layer the paint and note areas of light and dark in the subject. Certain chunks, or sections of hair will have different tones because of how the light hits it.

Paint the details of the hair. Continue to look for shapes and areas of color rather than individual strands. Add the finer details, including smaller areas of varying color, defined corkscrew-shaped pieces of hair, smaller wisps of hair that stick out around the silhouette and frame the front of the face.

If you are talikng about computer drawing then I cannot help you - but if you mean DRAWING i.e. pencil & paper then there is a technique called debossing. Essentially you use a hard, thin & sharp pencil to sketch in the hairs ^H or higher. As you want curly hair then that is easy - just scumble away with the pencil within the area you want the hair to cover.
One thing to bear in mind… and this will seem counter intuitive until you understand the reason… but wherever you want highlights and great detail, use the pencil extensively - where you want dark shaded areas, only draw with the hard pencil sparingly.

    • I have come across this oil name SHEETAL MAHANARAYAN OIL through one of my friends. This oil is quite helpful for relieving pain from joints. My mother was suffering from this pain for quite a long time. We had tried different products for it, but neither found useful. I bought this product from Sheetalherbal site. This oil is very beneficial in relieving pain and stiffness in the joints. After using it daily my mother got relief from her pain. You can know more about it on its site.
    • You can use hydrating mango face cream for keeping your skin glow and younger. Sometimes you may do anti-aging facial in a parlor. I am in 35 age, I use that cream and do facial once in a month in the parlor Bluedrake. They have natural products for the use of anti-aging facial.
    • When it comes to facial with natural products then the skin will not be rough. You can use some home remedies like honey for keeping your skin glow. Honey, when taken internally and externally, is excellent for the skin. Personally, I use honey, Turmeric for my skin and sometimes I do facial in Bluedrake parlor. This parlor uses natural products for facial.
    • You can remove acne scars. Acne scars are similar to stretch marks in that it is damaged tissue. 
      I've stretch marks since I was junior high from a combination of puberty and corticosteriod cream. I felt hopeless because older stretch marks are really hard to get rid of. I recently decided that I wanted to get rid of them and started experiment. The ones that bother me the most are on my calves because everyone notices them. I am still experiment and documenting my progress in a personal blog called fadeyourscars  I attached my before and after picture, this was after two months 
    • Lime Crime Cashmere is my fave all-around lipstick. Sometimes I use it to blend other shades on top of it, it just creates a nice foundation. I love their colors, too, they are so intense.
