October 17: How long is you hair?

 

What there is of my hair is short to maybe medium length, depending on how recently I have had it cut.

And I figured out that mini Solo cups aren’t just good mini painting handles for tweens - they also make good mini protection devices:

Who doesn't love a friendly game of 3-lizard monte?

You better move on to learning something new, as you have mastered not sucking at painting :;):

 

Well, thank you!  I’m pretty happy with my quiver painting now, though I could push the highlights a bit more I think.

 

However, I haven’t worked on skin tones or faces yet.  Here’s the last face I painted (before I started trying not to suck):

She’s playing an NPC that one of my PCs was took a liking to.  When he saw the mini I put down on the table for her after a couple of sessions, he kinda dropped that subplot...

Since I had it cut short this spring only about 18" now.  There's still enough to tie/pin back but it doesn't get caught in car doors any more.

From the top of my head, about 30 inches. From the base of my skull, about 24 inches. Though, I confess, I’ve never actually measured it; this is just an estimate.

Short. I've always had them short and will keep them short. With the gradual hair loss, my head looks less goofy on my head if I keep it under an inch/3cm.

 

Longest I've ever worn them was two inches/5cm long maybe, because late 80s-early 90s.

 

P.S. I also discovered that I can get sunburns on my scalp.

Short right now, but still longer than it should be. Planning to fix that tonight.

 

When younger, my hair was down to about the middle of my back, but that was annoying to take care of.

Short, I would like a crew cut myself but TLOTH likes it to have a little length.

Here’s the post that helped me up my mini eye game:

Note that “dks” is Derek Schubert, pro painter extraordinaire. 
 

And then for skin tones I just kinda stuck to using the triads for a while, until I felt confident in my abilities to freestyle.

@dks is a cyborg assassin from the future who forsook his programming and decided to use his powers for good by painting little army men. True fact. However that tutorial on eyes is still my go too as well. You've got some good brush control from the picture.

I'm assuming you are asking about head hair here....:wacko:

 

These days, probably around an inch, give or take.  Too much longer (say by two inches) and it starts to get a mind of its own.

 

In  the past, somewhere over 3 feet.  I never measured it, but I could tuck it into my jeans back pocket (and sit on it, which is annoying when you don't notice ...for a while) and I'm 6' 2".

My thin ponytail gets about halfway down my back, although it starts tapering off around my shoulders.

 

Most of the hair forward of my temples is gone and I might be starting to bald at the top of my head (where most people go bald first).  If I lose all of my hair on top, I'll probably look like Denethor from the Peter Jackson LotR movies, at which time I'll probably cut it close or shave it all off.  I'm not looking forward to that.

I usually get a brushcut. I think I'll need to get a haircut soon, though I'm not fond of the proposition when the weather starts getting colder.

 

And I very much do like long hair, I think it's lovely. ::):

 

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there (Hair!)
Shoulder length or longer (Hair!)
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair

So, joking aside, though Pieper knows, I started losing most of my hair on top in my mid twenties. I've been shaving my head for 15 or so years now. The longest it has ever gotten since I started shaving it all is maybe a couple of millimeters if I'm really tired or sick and just can't be bothered to bic it off.
