Illustration... Wavy Hair, re "do"

Did another 2 versions of the wavy hair sketch, but with a slightly different angle.  I love doing hair sketches!  I'm not really good at it, still practising, but I love sketching those flowy, wavy hairstyles!   I was actually trying to recreate this style I did years ago.  Tried different variations on the materials, and somewhat failed on both.  The only thing I liked on these two is the hair... just a bit.  And the practice continues!  By the way, this is my 100th blogpost!  Yay!  =^.^=

This is the first version.   
Started with graphite shading, but overdid it a bit.  
Also used watercolor, chalk pastels and watercolor pencils.

The 2nd version.  Didn't do any graphite shading here.  

Work-in-progress for the 2nd version.  
Watercolor wash (base), chalk pastel for the skin/hair and graphite lines for the features.
Forgot to take wip pics for the 1st version.

Sketch... Lela Rose, Resort 2013

Pretty collection by Lela Rose... I am so loving this particular design!  Love the play on contrasts... on the texture and the color.

Illustration... Wavy hair

Meow, there!  Still practising on hair...  and still not quite sure how to go about it!  LOL...  I did two illustrations of the same hairstyle.  Love sketching long, wavy hair!

This is the 2nd version... the "neat" one...

wip of 2nd version...

1st version...
Messy...  although I'm liking the browns and the wavy, flowy hairstyle.  

wip of the 1st version...
The original hairstyle looks much nicer of course!  From the JJ fashion magazine, my fave!

Sketch... Green but grey

Another grey and cloudy day again!  Anyway, sketched another green outfit for today... a light and simple dress.  It is after all Pantone's Color of the Year!  Yay for Emerald Green!

Sketch... Little pink Jacket

Meow, there!   A gloomy and chilly day today.  At least my sketch outfit is just right for the chilly weather, but not the wet part...  =^.^=

Green doesn't seem to photograph well.
Her shirt is supposed to be mint green but it looks like grey here...

Sketch... Fresh and green

Meow, there!   It's finally here... 2013.  New year... a new and fresh start!   Haven't really used green much in my sketches.  But this Pantone's Color of the Year, emerald, seems to be addicting... I think I'll be using it more often.  =^.^=
