Lots of hair!

November 15, 2010

The fairy tale princess in all her apricot-tressed glory. Done in pencil on one sheet of 8.5×11 paper. I almost never draw full-page sketches; they’re usually only a few inches tall, a bunch crammed onto one page.
Drawing all that hair detail was so fun! (I know; I’m insane) Sometimes it’s almost like Celtic knots. It got so complicated that I scanned it so I could fill in the color to see what was hair and what was not.

    Hello, my name is Meryl! First of all, I LOVE YOUR ARTWORK! 😀 I am a big fan already. I was searching for Rapunzel drawings and I am so happy I found your website! 🙂 My friend loves Rapunzel and she wanted to a drawing of her…but I can’t draw. 😦 Sadly.
    Anyways, I LOVE THE HAIR! It is soooo….detailed! 🙂

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, Meryl! I’m not good with praise, I always go pink in the face, so it’s a good thing this is over the internet. 😉
      Hey, almost anyone can learn to draw; when I was a kid, I just started by tracing other pictures until I had a hang of the shapes and lines.
      Rapunzel has always been a favorite of mine; I like long hair (obviously).
      Thanks again,
