Hair tutorial with Copics (PICTURE HEAVY!)

Hi everyone!
I had some request about a hair tutorial so today I will show you my way of colouring hair step by step.

Here´s an image I drew with a black pencil, sorry about the poor quality of it.. I don´t have the technology to make it into a clean digi  ;p
You can use this image as you want.

 Copics needed: E50, E53, E57, E49.
The only thing to practice is THIN LINES!!!

First color a SMALL part of the hair with E50.

Then make quick light-handed strokes with E57 following the shape of the hair.
Don´t try to make the lines even! Some are long, some are short!

Narrow ONLY THE TIP of the darker lines with E53 (don´t try to blend anything just continue the line to make it narrower and longer)

New strokes with E49...  I made them too thick here =p try to be more light-handed ;)

Soften the tip of the dark strockes with E57. (Don´t worry if it doesn´t look good now, you can always get back to it in the end)

Great! Let´s colour another part of the hair.
Same thing, start with E50 and make some strokes with E57 by following the shape of the hair.

Continue narrowing the tip of the lines with E53.


And soften the dark lines with E57 and the tips with E53 if needed.

Now another area =)
E50 and E57 following the shape of the hair... so toward the ponytail!

Then the same lines with E49

And soften with E57.

New area!
E50 and E57 following the shape of the hair toward the ponytail.


Soften with E57

And soften ONLY the tip of the line with E53

Now another area!
First E50 then strockes with E57 following the shape.


Soften with E57 and E53...

You can play with the strokes until you are happy with it!
So more E49 and E57 ;))

The ponytail!
Same pattern... E50 and E57.


Soften with E57 and then only the tips with E53

Almost finished!
The rest of the ponytails..

That´s it!

Hope this helped =)
