ok, let's see if this works. This won't be a "currently working on" bit, but it's what comes to mind when I think of coarse feeling dreads and I'd prefer them to be a little softer. (just throw my head in the dryer with a fabric softner! hahaha)
Oh! I mentioned this one too. (the altered shirt) I re-sized it but kept the sleeves and torso long. Um...if you're able to look close, and I don't know if you can, well there's white stitching and the sleeves are a little poorly done. I've since fixed the thread color, but there's nothing more I can do with the sleeves. I had to learn the hard way on this one! Not too bad though, right?
edit: oh wow! that one actually does zoom in. look out! (may be able to fix it, but eh wth!)

I assume those are the size of the original pictures.
You're probably better off using something like imgur.com to upload pics and then paste the embed code here, as we're going to have to turn off the "attachments" feature soon because we only have a limited amount of space. But on the plus side, imgur etc resize the images so you'll be able to see them in the post without having to clicking through.
Nice projects! I've never done it but it looks cool.
Forget if I posted this already but here's a detail view of that recent 'Hannibal' illustration I finished.
No sign up required and you don't have to download anything.
Just go to imgur.com, hit the upload button and do all that. Then, if you've only uploaded one image, look at the different types of code down the right hand side and copy the one under the title "BBCode (Forums)" and just paste that straight into here and it'll show up.
Also, if you're using Tapatalk at any point then you can upload directly via that.
I know we have (and used to have) a bunch of people who loved illustration - and saw this as a fun sounding competition: www.wwpbic.com Doubt I'd manage to submit anything great but some of the artists on here have awesome talent and might have fun with it ^^

CHESH-guest computer: anna conditioner helps but it is a lot of work no matter how you go about undoing them. Coconut oil helped when I had to redo mine

anna: We need help! My daughter has dreadlock or mostly matted hair type dreadlocks from not brushing her brush. Can anyone help us figure out how to take them out? We have been using baby powder to rub the hair around to loosen it up.

SketchyMagpie: I'd suggest reading our FAQ as dreads coming loose is very normal in the early stages.

SketchyMagpie: Hey Danny. Depending on your hair type, you might need a few more inches. I started from short hair with 2 sets of dreads and they didn't stay in until my hair was 5 inches long

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

rye: hi.. newbie on locks. I have 2 weeks locks but its not extension , just want to ask if it ok to do bath everyday and shampoo my dreads everyday

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.
