Hair Tutorial by jht888 Hair Tutorial by jht888
This is the tutorial that so many of you have request for, this is a step by step on how I paint my hair in my paintings. I have used Clara’s beautiful face from my painting “Clara from Journey to the centre of the Tardis (below)” I have removed all of her hair and have painted without any references Clara with blonde hair in a style that came to my head. I wanted to show you all just how easy it is to paint volume realistic hair.

With my Eye, Nose, Mouth and ear tutorial, you can learn to do a realistic face to paint the hair on but I have also included a template from my Clara painting without any hair so you can download it and follow my step by step method and paint the beautiful hair yourself.


Please feel free to download the bust of Clara to practise on, I would love to see your interpretations.

I hope you all like this one :) If you have time please leave a comment, fav it or add me to your Watch list.
I hope that you can take a little something from this :squee:

it's really helpful, thanks! (and it's also very weird to see Jenna Coleman  with blond hair)

great tutorial :)
random question: do you always pain with a black background or you just put it for the tutorials?
jht888 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014
I started doing the paintings on black backgrounds to start with because its easy on my eyes and it just stuck now with everything I paint. Glad you like it, thank you :happybounce:
