Hi, I'm Rosalie, and I'm an artist. And, I'm going to show you how to draw moving hair. So for this moving hair demonstration, I'm just going to draw a woman's face. That's who's going to be having the moving hair. And, her mouth is open. Those are her eyebrows. She's just - there's her face. So, she's sort of swinging her hair. And, when I do moving hair, it depends on the kind of hair. This person has hair like this, and it's just - she's sort of flip, like, tossing her head, and her hair is, like, just going everywhere. And, you just draw it with, like, wavy lines, and it can just be random, or it can all be going in the same direction, too, is fine. I'm just sort of sketching in some - here's her ear. And, I'm just sort of sketching in some crazy hair, just swinging around. And, I'm going to, you know, define it using a different thicknesses and colors, just to show, like, the range of the movement, because the light reflects differently off of hair, depending on what position it is relative to the light. So, you can see, just, moving hair is just, you know, making the hair, like, radiate out from the head in different directions, because hair normally just hangs down if it's not moving. And, that's how I draw moving hair.
