Hair Styles: Straight to Curly by foreverfornever740 Hair Styles: Straight to Curly by foreverfornever740
Requested: To show straight, wavy, and curly hair in manga style.


I decided to give a full range in front and back view, then give a singled out strand of hair so it's hopefully clearer how to draw that style. Then I quickly speed colored the hair so you can see what it looks like once done, then gave the color pallet in case you want to use these colors :)

EDIT: Some of you have been asking, and no, you don't have to credit back to me if you use a hair style shown. Of course it's appreciated, but not at all necessarily :)

I have naturally thick and wavy hair. When I was in my young teens it was crazy. So crazy that I got made fun of. My friends often tell me they wish they had curly hair but they don't. When I get told to embrace it it pisses me off. I'd rather wear it straight because anime characters and Japanese people have straight hair. Any time a straight haired girl says she wants curly hair I feel like cussing at her and pointing the middle finger. It really gets on my nerves.

I like wavy styles, not too straight not too curly. An equal amount of both.

I'm somewhere between the brunet, the bluey, and the gal with the black hair, so I can say you did a very nice job out of personal knowledge.

This is so helpful! I always get overwhelmed when trying to do totally curly hair. It's a challenge for me to give it real shape, so your individual strands were really helpful in giving me an idea of what I should be doing. Thank you for posting this.

what about wavy hairstyle with middle lenght?
Reply
:iconforeverfornever740:
foreverfornever740 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Third one in from the left is somewhat wavy, fourth one is wavy with a bit of a curl. Middle length typically means somewhere around the shoulder. If you'd like it longer/shorter, go ahead and extend/shorten the hair when you draw it.
