How to draw hair tutorial: Drawing gray or blonde hair
Drawing blond or silver hair is only slightly different from drawing other hair types. When I am drawing blond or silver
hair, I just work a lot lighter.
Try using an H or an F pencil (harder graphite) sharpened to a very fine point. For the darker areas, try using a mechanical
pencil. Keep it light, but remember to keep your contrasts of dark versus light areas.I also like to shade very
lightly around the outer edges of the hair, so there is a bit of contrast between the light hair. This is especially important
when drawing on white paper, because you need to do something to create a difference between the
paper and the person's head.
To create a softly blended background like my example picture, try taking a darker pencil like a 4B, and rub it on a bit
of scrap paper, then take some tissue or a chamois and rub into that graphite. Then in circular motion, shade in the background.
