Hair Curls Tutorial by KeyshaKitty Hair Curls Tutorial by KeyshaKitty
WARNING: LARGE file ahead!!!

I was simply blown away by how many people were interested in seeing a tutorial on how I draw the curls for my characters' hair. :O_o: So I figured, with all the response, I'd try and make a tutorial. It DID end up taking a long time to make, so I obviously won't be making alot of tutorials in future. X3

Still, I hope this gives some people an idea about how I do them - and ways that you can practice and learn with until you develop your own style.

As for the picture, it will eventually be another one of my berry princess'. This one for 'Blackberries'.

Curls have to be the most irritating hair styles for me. O__o Hopefully this'll help and curls won't look so hinky.

Even WITH this tutorial, which is awesome, curls are still difficult. At least for me xD But it gave me a better understanding of how curls fall, so thank you :D

I dont know how this should be explained, so I'm just goin' for it...

I like the curls way more than the head, but I like the head, Although I tend not to like the design and think honestly it would look better with an anime design. For disney-like stuff, great, for manga, uh.... not so great...

I don't know what you were going for though, so I cant decide weather its good or bad.

Even with all the talk about the head, my main topic is still the curls. epic pwnage of extreme doomness. Curls are freakin' hard.

NOICE!!!! ;D (noice-nice, but cooler)

It looked like I had rice balls and christmas ornaments tacked onto Sonozaki Mion's head o_o.
