Hey guys, Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw hair with a sharpie marker. Now I actually don't have a sharpie, I do have a pink marker though, but it's going to do the same thing, so you can follow me along with your sharpie if you have one. I'm just going to draw the front of the face here, and just show where the eyes are, and then on this side I'm going to do a profile, the lips and a chin, alright. So now I'm going to take my handy orange marker, and I'm just going to kind of give this lady here a hairstyle that's a little bit on the shorter side, so what I'm going to do is, I'm going to bring this down in front, maybe it's in front of her eye, and just kind of fill that in, you can use whatever highlights you want, it's totally up to you, and on the other side, and that's a way of doing a shorter hairstyle. And like I said, if you have different colors you can always add some highlights in there. The things that are the most underneath are going to be the darker highlights, and the ones, the parts that are going to be a little more sparse, are going to be the lighter parts. Now if you want to do another hairstyle, I'm going to use my green marker here, and I'm going to actually bring this down the side, and this hair is actually going to be resting behind the ear. So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to draw an ear here, erase that a little bit, and bring this hair kind of down behind it, and over the top, and just like that. And you could fill it in of course and do the same thing with the highlights, but it's totally up to you. Alright guys, and that's how you draw hair. So good luck and stay creative.
