ProMarker Tutorial - Hair

Today I will show you how I colour Chloe's hair
You can see here how I coloured her skin

I am going to colour Chloe's hair brown and as I only own 3 shades of brown these will be the shades I will be using
If you already have a large collection of ProMarkers then you will have a good selection to choose from. Just remember to use two or three shades which are similar but darker than each other
I am using

Tan O528
Cinnamon O427
Shale R215

Work one section at a time as the ProMarkers blend better when the ink is wet
First I add the lightest colour Tan to the front section of Chloe's hair

I then add Cinnamon to where I think the shadows would be and the hair would be darkest

I use the lighter pen Tan again and in circular motion go over the Cinnamon and drag out the colour so it 'blends'

I add Shale the darkest pen to where I think the very darkest shades of the hair would be

I  go over the Shale with Cinnamon and drag the colour out in a circular motion

I go over both darker colours with the lightest pen Tan and drag out the Cinnamon colour into the Tan so it 'blends' nice and smooth

I then work on the left side of Cloe's hair by firstly adding Tan and then Cinnamon in the darkest areas and 'blend' in like before

I then add the darker pen Shale to the darkest of the shadowy areas.......

.......and use the pens to 'blend' again

As you can see I continued the same process on the right side of Chloe's hair
I will be back another day to show you how to colour Chloe's clothes and finish off the image

Hi thanks for the tutorials. I'm struggling to get on with promarkers, but I think it is just a lack of confidence. Jeanette
