This is WIP 4 of 4. I've had a lot of people ask me to do some step scans for Blonde hair, and thought this would be a good one. NOTE: I will post the FINAL in actual size, but these WIP's will be larger, so you can see the details.

HERE, I've started to "swipe" out some highlights in her hair, using both a kneaded eraser and a "Tuff Stuff stick eraser. After that I spent a couple hours working out the rest of the hair details. She had a sweater on, which I wasn't even going to try to draw all the threads and holes, so I tried to create something that looked close. The photo had a pure white background, and I felt she got washed out, so I decided to darken it.
