How you line-art something really depends on your style, so here’s the things to do when learning to draw something - in this case, natural black hair:
1) Study It - really look at different hair textures, thicknesses, length, in different styles, etc. Also look at different art styles, how different artists draw and render afro-textured hair. Make notes on the shapes and forms, and some ways they’ve been translated into line-art.
2) Explore It - draw it different ways, in different styles, until you discover a way you like to draw it (your style!) Go crazy, have fun, experiment! The more you do, the more easy it’ll come to you.
Here’s some of my own experiments:
Hope this helps to get started, anon :’)
can we use your art as icons/bgs if we credit you? I was considering using your wtnv piece as a background and figured I’d check first!
Yes, as long as you credit me, that’s fine. Thank you for asking first!
Hello & thank you :)
I use pixelstains’ pencil brush set for lining ( mechanical pencil, pencil setting, smooth stroke on), and a round hard brush for coloring ( default brush, basic setting, smooth stroke on )
I’m very flattered you’d want something like that!
Generally, I’m only comfortable selling prints of fan art through zines or commissions - limited run things, not left up for sale.
With that in mind, I’m not sure about an art book or prints, sorry. Even without legalities, there’s time and resources to sort out … My tentative answer is “probably not.”
If that ever changes, of course I’ll post about it, though?
