Thanks! It is fun! When I was drawing both Jared and Johnny Depp's beards, I realized I couldn't go too wrong with drawing facial hair. Compared to the hair on top of heads, I don't have to worry to much about keeping a consistent direction, and enjoyed having some freedom.
Thanks Diana!! Let me tell you, I definitely struggle with hair too. Shorter strokes is easier for beards like his. But for longer hair, it's honestly hit or miss for me. I try to pay most attention to highlight areas, and hope it looks believable, lol. Check out some free videos of drawing realistic hair on youtube. Just watching the techniques others use definitely helped me get a better handle on hair. [link][link]
