Hi guys

Trying my hands on this is something i seem to have neglected in a while; guess i was a bit conscious about having to deal with the hair....
Well, i don't know about you, but i feel hairs do demand a special kind of attention and patience especially if a realistic effect is expected.

Lets take a look at the reference

Great work. Honestly- when It scrolled onto my feed I thought 'wow- check out the hair- incredible' and then I read your post and couldn't believe that was the bit you'd worried about. Really lovely detail. And I love how you have taken the reference and really made the work your own style. E x

The hair was really something to worry about cause it wasn't like the random African hair i was used to drawing...
Though i'd finished other parts of the drawing, i had to keep it at someplace and take a look at it ocassionally so i'd know how to deal with the hair 😊

Anyways i'm glad it didn't come out looking awk ward like i thought, and I'm even more grateful you spared some time to check this out... Thanks a great deal @eveningart

Hey great piece @joyart. Thanks a lot for being on Steem so I can see it.

Thanks even more for checking this out @dandays 💙

Well done on the hair. The finished drawing is terrific. The only thing I would note is that the brows are very heavy in the drawing. As an artist myself, brows have always been problematic for me to render in portraiture too.

I found your link in self-promotions on the @curie Discord chat.

That's a good observation friend; i noticed that i actually applied more ink than neccessary and there was no turning back since the deed had already been done 😀

It's good to have you come around, thanks lots @momzillanc

This is really good! Keep up the good art work ✨

Thanks dear..... i wouldn't mind
