Ines – Haircutting Sketches

Last week I visited my favourite hairdresser, Ines, at her home to get a new haircut.

We had that private session because Ines was fired by her former boss and was in some kind of interim state between jobs.
As she’s going to work in a new barbershop soon I got the idea to do a drawing as a gift for her new work location.

Here’s the documentation of the work in progress so far:

1) The first sketches I and the main sketch I did in Manga Studio

Haircutting Sketch 1

2) For the colouring I tried an unsusal dark skin tone that reminds me a bit of 40ies illustrations or B-Movies. The hair colour I left out. Found it looked quite interesting with the white hair…

3) then I went a bit further in photoshop where I did some blending mode tests and ended with „overlay“

C-Boy

The next theme that occured my mind was the C-Boy theme.
It’s about these skinny „Emo“-like teenage boys.
I call them C-Boys when they stand like like a „C“…

In the anatomy sketches I tried to exxagerate the pose.
When I realized that the guy looked like an old man I searched for some skinny guy photos.
But the I couldn’t find a photo of a „C“-pose…
So these sketches are put here to remind me that I should work this out.
Or maybe do a series: „Fat guys – skinny guys“…?
