Description: I wanted you guys to get another good lesson on manga related stuff. Yesterday I gave you a tutorial on manga faces, today I will be showing you “how to draw manga hair step by step”. Again there really isn’t too much to say about manga hair because it is just hair. Anime and manga characters are created with different styles of hair for both male and female creations. This tutorial focuses on both male and female styles that are commonly used on the characters that are written for the comics and for the animated cartoons. I also tried created one of my own styles too. Can you tell what style is my own? Anyways, I figure that you can never have too many lessons on anything related to manga and or anime. I really had so much fun with you guys yesterday in the live stream room. I always enjoy drawing in front of you all live because I get helpful pointers and suggestions from my fellow artists. This lesson will be easy to follow which is why I am labeling it under the novice section. I have to go because I have like seven more tutorials to submit.
