How do I draw hair realistically?
I have been drawing for years and years and years and have recently started portrait drawings and I know everything will eventually improve but the only part of the body I need major improvement on is THE HAIR!!
Here is how I draw
I mean at around 2:12 you can see that the hair looks like hair but nothing like the drawing...and also other portrait drawings on my channel has the same type of problem and I have no idea how to fix it!!!
I love art and will continue to do art no matter what anyone says
@ Shae Absent, I am trying to listen to what you said, and I still think proportions and hair are my 2 faults...and thanks for constantly helping me, I would love to be able to email you questions lol :)

Yeah no problem. You can call me Shae. :) And you're right, I think the hair is the biggest culprit. It may help to try drawing and sketching smaller, when you practice. Just so you get a better understanding of using a smoother hand when you draw. Email me anytime. I will show you my art, too, if you wish. That way, you can see that im not just all talk ;) I would love to help.
PS: What pencil do you use? Not the brand. The point. Like HB4 or HB2 or what..?
Here are some of my old drawings on my tumblr. I do mostly digital artwork... (the purple instagramed actor portrait was unfinished)Source(s): http://youtu.be/g5lrjn963KA This ones good... but it may be too small scale http://youtu.be/4cDGxW8OGHY This one is much better. But its VERY large scale.

You can find lots of tutorials via google. There are also a bunch on DeviantArt specifically.
In case the link doesn't work, you just go to "stock and resources"-->"tutorials"--->"Traditional Art"

you can't shade hair. you have to first use the pencil line strokes and THEN lightly shade so that it adds more definition and shows actual lines just like real hair has.
