I'm busy drawing a picture of Elsa and Anna from Frozen for my friend in colour pencil, but I've come into a spot of trouble with shading Elsa's hair. She's sort of a platinum blonde - almost white in some pictures and I have no idea what sorts of colours I should be blending to get the right colour :S

I have lots of pencils - Colleen, Faber-Castelle, Lakeland Colourthin, Derwent Studio and a few other odd ones so I have some choices, however almost all the yellows are a bright, lemon-yellow and I don't think any of the tans would work.. :/

So I'd love it if anyone has any ideas as to what colours I should blend or be using! :) I'll also attach some pictures of Elsa so you can see her hair for yourself :)

Maybe if you keep the hair mostly white and just do the outlines and edges in colour? I'm not too sure what colours to suggest though, possibly brown/tan for the outline and shading and then a sort of cream colour.

What the fuck, I can barely draw stickmen! That is some top notch artwork! 10/10

Haha just to be clear, I didn't draw the pictures ^ :) My friend found them and sent them to me - but I wish I had :P
