got a little more done here on jessica. layering skin tones and some work on her hair.

read a short but engaging article the other day in the american artist drawing magazine regarding hair. i think it's true that drawing hair can be a bit over whelming at first, but if you start breaking it down it's not too hard. there are things to take into consideration when drawing hair: structure of the head, tones of the hair, hair strands and light source. it is not one large mass but a combination of shadow, light, highlights, and half tones. and it varies greatly from person to person in texture, volume and style. my trick is not to think of it as "hair" but as negative and positive space. more than half the time i am drawing, my paper is either upside down or sideways.
