turns out weird? could you give us some examples you want to imitate?
Its just the placing of the curve and the line weight. The way yours looks flat is because you curve some of them too low, for example the right side, her hair bangs, the curve does not really wrap well with the head....if that makes any sense ._.
What exactly do you mean by "too low"?
could you maybe mark the bangs you are talking about, so I can understand better?
Sure...I think this is what you are trying to achieve. I blue line it kinda...poorly OTL
hope you get the idea :C
Thanks for your help, that's a great tip. I always thought of hair like very thin, paperlike material, so there was no real distance to the head
This helped me understand better, how to draw it ;-)
I tried it myself, using your sketch as a base: http://co0n.de/pics/anime.jpg
still working on it though
You are missing some core concepts.
Also hair would not be blowing that much on the drawing.
the missing hair actually flattens the image.
You really have to think of hair in terms of strands and not chunks.
FYI drawing more strands will help out the drawing.
on the right I illustrated what would your hair vs my hair would look like from the back if there was no wind.
yours is missing a bunch of hair.
Hmm, now that you point it out, I see it too :-/ Maybe some accident while mowing the backyard?
I only did a rough sketch before vectorizing it, maybe I should have spent some more time thinking about it.
I will do a new scetch later and post it.
Thanks for your help
ps: I also noticed, you slightly moved the head to the left - is the head I drew not correct either, or did it have no reason?

i think i drew the head a little small, but I screwed up erasing your head and forgot where it ended up. I prefer drawing with a more curvy face that's why
