The “Coily” Challenge

If you’re interested in drawing Afro-textured hair for real (as in with a pencil & paper) check out this tutorial over at Learn to Art.  I’ve been trying to figure out how to make this kind of “coily” hair texture in Inkscape without drawing it freehand.  I’m getting close to a solution, but it may be a while before I can put together a tutorial.  So far, it looks like my version is turning out more cartoony than realistic—which is actually just right for the visual style I am going for.
