Various Male Anime+Manga Hairstyles by Elythe Various Male Anime+Manga Hairstyles by Elythe
:star: Various Male Anime/Manga-Hairstyles :star:
(fullview please!)

After drawing 50 Female Anime/Manga-Hairstyles in June of this year I've told several people who asked that I'll do this for male characters too. I never had enough motivation but during the last days I couldn't color anything so I decided it would be best to draw something I don't even have to color. That's why I drew these hairstyles~

I've spent my last university-days on that because... well, I'm not the digital worker so I just took some blank A4-Pages and began my work. Nine hairstyles per page.^^
It was a lot of work to sort them digitally but... well, I'm finally done. Sorry guys, don't be sad that you don't have any cute pigtails and stuff like that. xD
For the more female Hairstyles just look at my 50 Female Anime/Manga-Hairstyles. (Yup, I must admit that I've taken four or five of those and recycled them in this pic too^^)

:heart: Just go ahead and use them when you need inspiration! Take them, draw them, change them slightly, change them extremely... Do it! It makes me happy that they're so useful!

:heart: More Various Anime/Manga-Stuff

Thank you for providing these wonderful hair references ; this will come in handy very much for myself and i'm sure for many others :hug:

I never expected this stuff to become so helpful to so many deviants.
It still makes me smile everytime I see feedback such as yours to this or the Female-Version of my Hairstyle-References.

This motivates me to think about making something like that again someday~

Well here on D.A there is a lot of "artists in training" you could say and we could use all the hep we can get lol xD
and yes I'm to hear that , it is nice to hear that your own stuff is helping people in some way or another , it is a very nice feeling ^^.

That would be cool , you have some awesome stuff and other people seem to think so as well , your refs are truly wonderful and has helped so many people x3

Hopefully I'll find the time to make some more hair-refs this year^^
But somehow it's a little disappointing on the other hand, that stuff like this gets a few thousand faves and my real artworks, which take at least 5 hours up to 12 if it's detailed barely ever get 50 xD

Yes unfortunately that is too true , its probably because though that stuff like this are considered "references" and a TON of people need those so its a sad fact but in a way it makes sense xP

Thank you for this... I never know how the hair is supposed to fall over the face/grow out of the head for guy's hair. :3

I'm glad to hear it's helpful! I'm not a pro myself but I'm glad this stuff helps a little^^

I love number 6! I think I find myself using it way too much though and characters that I make up always look kinda similar... Great work!

I know this probem. It's simple to use the same hairstyle again and again but sometimes it's just not enough, that's exactly what I made this for^^
Thank you =D
