I hope this helps a little, Charihunter!
It was a little difficult making a tutorial on how I draw “chunky” looking hair (I’ve reached the point where I just sketch it down without guides!), but I hope a short step-by-step guide and some break downs of already existing sketches helps clarify things.
1. Draw out the basic shape of your hair, whether you’re working on bangs or the overall shape. I like my hair to have movement, so slanted or curvy lines work the best!
2. Add some interior lines. Vary them a little. These lines will define the thickness of the strands.
3. Once the main body of the hair is defined, I’ll usually add a few stray strands. This also shows some movement, and works well to convey a breeze.
4. The last step is to vary all the strands but not too much. Add some more interior lines to “cut out” certain areas. Shorten some strands and lengthen others.
These are meant to show a basic overall shape that the hair follows, and also some variety in size.
I apologize it isn’t more in depth! If you have any other questions though, feel free to ask!
