Tutorial - Black Hair

Hello ladies, this is my very first post for Mad for Markers, and would you believe my very first tutorial.. nothing like jumping right in there boots and all! Let me just say that first off I am not Copic Certified like some of these lucky ladies here, this is just showing you how like to colour black hair.
Right so here we go... I tend to work from lightest to darkest. I have 6 images that show you the progression. First I colour with C0 for the highlights then work through to the darker shades - C2, C3, C6, and finally C8.
In the last image I have gone over the whole hair image using C0, to blend it all in together.
Sometimes I tend to add a hint of blue to the lightest colour to give it extra shine.
So... how painless was that? Hopefully this is off some help to someone who is just starting out in the copic world
Other copics used
Skin - E000, E01, E11
Clothes - YR04, YR07, YR09
Shading - W0, W1
Have a great weekend
