Honey Blonde step by step hair tutorial

Honey Blonde Hair in Spectrum Noir Pens
right lets get colouring in
cover all the area with your light colour 141
yes it looks blotchy ......dont worry about it not being smooth as your going to work over the top
with the  middle tone 32 using little flicking strokes lay the colour down in the direction of the hair 
i started at the bow and worked up  turned image round then from crown worked down 
Do try to save some light area as this adds shape and form to your image
repeat on the other side of the hair
at this point  you can add more  32 colour to the areas you think can go darker
 such as the crown and near the bows

next step is the dark tone  i used 104  go in with same flicking strokes to the darkest areas to get some depth and shadow remember every layer of colour you add must be a smaller than the last layer
finally  go over it all in your lightest colour 141 using light strokes with chisel end it will all blend together to give a smooth effect  
you might loose some of your lines but dont panic just put them back in 
the colours look very strong in pictures . that's because the ink is still wet im taking pictures as i go .....once it dries it goes lighter...
hope this will help you achieve getting highlights  shape and form in to your hair with the pens you can apply this method to any hair colour you choose

ok dont all shout at me!!! i didn't stay in the lines ... hey we can resolve that with the blender pen lol.....
finished her  now she is ready for a card

thank you for popping by today
