Hair and lighting by moni158 Hair and lighting by moni158
>.< some practice stuff and a few people asked for more hair references and tips and what not.

I will do a male version too ^^

( just note that variant light works really nicely on hair since its shiny and reflective, The variant/ reflective light is shown by the blue arrow and appears as a light-ish gray while the red arrow is the dominant light source, also keep in mind some times there is only one light source and sometimes there can be multiple ^^ just have fun and experiment)

very impressive. I like the way that you show both the simple line drawing as well as the shaded sketch. It really helps me see how to apply the shading. Again very helpful and thank you.

Very nice. Lighting hair is one of the hardest things for me. It would be nice to see some varied hairstyles like cornrows and such, but then again I could always do my own research. :)

I love that you show shadow coming from the opposite direction, something that should have been obvious but didn't click until you just now pointed it out!
