As you may know, I love drawing hair, but if theres one type of hair that I love the most, it's afros. Not sure why, but it's probably because they are so damn challenging to draw, let alone tackle and interpret stylistically! So this piece here, was an absolute challenge as I took on one painting an Afro, using scanned watercolour splashes and a combination of digital painting. 

Heck, it was an awesome challenge, but it racked my brains and I struggled for hourssss including a heap of re-do's. Let me know what you think of my mixed take on the elusive, legendary Afro!

PS: this one is POSSIBLY going to be my last digital painting for a while with the whole dreamy hair and painting with light for a while!!!!! Don't flip out though! It's just for the next two weeks, I'm working on a massive drawing project that's going to challenge me beyond measure haha. I won't say what it is just yet, you'll just have to wait and find out! 
I hope anyone out there is just as excited as I am!
