Hey, what's up? Chris here, and today we're going to be learning how to draw African-American hair. So let's begin. Let me see, alright, we'll start with the hair. This is where you're going to bring this around and we're going to bring this around. I'm drawing these lines around here because this is hair so it grow sand intertwines into itself depending on your ethnicity. So African-American hair is usually curly as Caucasian hair is usually straight. So what we do is we make these little lines, we start and we bring these lines in, you know, like little curves and see what I'm doing. Then we're bringing this around and here's the face and do that here and we're going to do the mouth and you're just doing all this, thousands of just curls that's where we are and you're doing circles and you're curling it up and so forth and so on. And you get an idea of what you see. It's just like a bunch of Cs and then they overlap and you're doing Cs from other different areas of the head and there you have it. You get what is going on. And bring this around here, give this a little goatee, some brows and there you go. A couple more lines, by George, I think we've got it. I'm Chris and this is how you draw African-American hair.
