How To Draw Blonde Hair

Pin It

Drawing realistic hair can be hard enough. But drawing blonde hair is especially tough.

Blonde (or light color) hair can sometime look like it’s shinning in the light and it hard to create that effect with just black and white pencil shading.

So how are you suppose to create the effect of blonde shiny hair with dark shading?

Well in this video, Michael will show you the techniques you can use to do just that.

If you’d like to draw along, here the reference photo that he’s using in the video. As well as the finished drawing so you can compare it with yours when you’re done.

    What kind of pencil is the one that Michael uses in the video? What brand is it from and what is the name of the model?? Also, what is the hardness/softness of the lead that you use in this video?
