There is a basic rule of drawing, which is understand what you want to draw before you draw it.

This really applies to everything, but the best known one is basic anatomy. One of the less well known examples is hair. In this case Emily’s hair. Now I have seen girls with this hair cut, style, thing, before, but I can’t state how little I care how the achieve it… or I didn’t until I decided to try and draw it, when I had to start guessing, and as such it looks “a bit wierd.”
