Yesterday I sketched out some girly hairstyles using Mark Crilly’s Manga books as a source. Here’s yesterday’s sketch:
Then I had a big dose of fun in inking it. I didn’t use my grey manga felt pen this time. I just went for black ink on white paper and made it more fun by adding some shading lines and by making the lines in shadow a bit thicker. I really like the effect of this.
Looking at this picture critically I can see that some of the lines at the end of certain hair strands are not as clean as I would like. Also when I tried to add shadows to face of the girl on the left I used dashed lines. However, I think dashed lines on the face don’t really work so well, especially near the bottom of the face, as the marks can be confused for a beard!!! On the girl on the right I used the dashed lines again but kept away from the jaw area and I think it was more effective.
