Is there a technique you use to draw hair as smooth & realistic as you do? This is amazing!

Thank you, i used a 7B pencil here and a stiff paintbrush to blend or "scrub" the tones together and a soft paintbrush to get a softness to it. The Velum helps in this because it's very durable and can take it. I then used a pencil eraser to draw in highlights and add some dark lines also. Then i soft blend to push back the whites and repeat the process a few times until it looks ok. I've added a large file so you can enlarge the area to see what i mean. I hope it helps.

Thanks very much, i find the Velum a wonderful surface to blend on with soft paint brushes and a nice big make up foundation brush. Got to use softer B's though, the lightest being a 5B here and a 7B for the hair :D

Yes, after seeing your drawing I immediately looked in the description to see what kind of paper you used and saw Velum, I'll definitely look it up next time I'm at the store :) And thanks a lot for the tips!! :D
