The first step in this video is to draw a rectangle on a piece of paper to gauge the length of the hair stokes. The artist then makes long pencil marks along the inside of the rectangle that are much less defined towards the middle. It is explained that you need to go in one direct with your pencil strokes as going back and forth gives an unrealistic final product. It is shown that you must begin at the beginning of the hair source and bring the strokes downwards for more realism. Four examples are given at the end of the video to show various end products you may emulate.
