I felt like I rushed yesterdays drawings a bit, so I wanted to spend a bit more time practicing manga hair. I put the result together in this reference sheet, which of course you can use to look at if you want ideas for haircuts for your own characters :)

Edit: Thanks so much to everyone who has viewed and fav:ed this! It's really motivating :)

Really nice job :D
I don't really have to say much about it lol
maybe just a little more shading or whatever, like where are darker parts and where the highlights are.
I also like that the faces are always turned to somewhere else in stead of alwyas looking in the sam direction.
I think youre doing great job in drawing hair, way better than me xD
its really good that you use small locks in stead of thick ones because I think these look very weir but its thin and really nice here :D
Keep up the good work!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

I been drawing manga for 1 year and 8 month in a professional way and you are way better than me at this ...I just notice how much I have to learn ...thank you
The shortest haircut looks realy boy-like but well thats good too some girls realy look good that way but I see some problems with the volume of the hair

This haircuts realy give stile to the caracters and the draw its realy good ...but if you do something less realistic I think you will improve and it will give it more impact and originality
off that it realy an example to me keep working ...and thanks for sharing this
