It's funny how when you have a week full of plans, they suddenly fall apart and you have hours of free time.

Hola. I do not need a week. All my plans were shoved off a table and we're broke. yay! more minecraft!!

So lately I've been seeing a lot of skins with bangs like this:
Plz click me :(

Once upon a time, this was super new and unique but a LOT of girl skins - mainly on skindex - seem to have this.
Yes, it's kind of cute, but after 4 years, it's getting kinda old. So here I am to spice things up with slightly LESS generic bangs that are still somewhat generic!! :D

Shall we?

BEFORE LOOKING AT THE TABS BELOW
Please note that I'm not trying to force you to do this. This is just to help people who maybe want help getting inspired to do bangs. You can alter any of these to fit your own tastes. Yo do not have to copy it exactly, okay?

Oh, and you don't have to credit me. I'm not saying do this: hEY GUYZ LOOK AT DIS NEW SHADING I CAME UP WITH ALLLLLLLL BY MYSELF!!!!

But you do not have to say "O dis crap is a variation of Peytato's terrible blog."

UPDATE:
Oh, and someone in the comments made a good point. I'm not trying to say, "HEY EVERYONE IS GENERIC EXCEPT ME WHEN I CLEARLY AM!!"

They said that with an 8x8 pixel canvas, it's impossible to not be generic without covering the whole face.
While that's true, I'm still poorly trying. XD
Style Option 1 - My personal preference

This is the style I prefer to use. It can give a skin a youthful, or more mature look based off the outfit and colors.
It's hair, but you don't look like you forgot to move 99% of your hair out of your face when you just woke up, ya know?
(Note you don't have to shade like me if you want to use this.)
And the pixels under the eyes are optional, depending if you want a feminine or more masculine look. Or for a neither feminine or masculine look, erase the pixel under the eye on the smaller strand of her. Perfect for a gender neutral look!

This can also be reversed on the other side of the face.
Style 2

I used to use this a LOT.
This is a simple side fringe. It's generally used for a more innocent look. Super easy.

ALT:
More edgy/evil version
Just add one more pixel over the top left eyelash pixel


Style 3 - Pretty popular nowadays but still coolio

This is a GREAT hairstyle for a youthful look, or a manga style.
And you can alternate the middle strands, and the under-eye pixels!
ALT 1
Just clip off one under-eye pixel for a gender neutral look. (:

ALT 2
Just clip the middle strand to be level.


Style 4

This works best for skins with a ponytail in the back. Just a little fringe, and that's really it! Simple and cute-ish!
Style 5

This is good for:
Feminine boys
Masculine Girls
Gender neutral skins.
Very nice and easy.
Style 6

This is a very nice part down the middle. Pretty symmetrical. Better for an elegant, lady-like skin.
Style 7 - WARNING: EDGY
This is based off Zane Ro'Meave from Aphmau's roleplays.
He's great.
He's so edgy and emo.





Well, I'm out of ideas. Hope this helps somewhat? Maybe? I dunno?

All right I'll shut up, post a skin after this, and take my leave.


This is my first blog/tutorial. Please do not criticize my word choice, grammar, spelling, or punctuation.

:)


UPDATE AS OF 2/11/17: I MADE IT ON THE MAIN POPREEL.
I'M DYING.

It's interesting to see someone else's take on different bangs!! :) I made a tutorial similar to this just before yours and I also found a lot of people found it useful! I hope people take the suggestions on board because I for one do get bored of seeing the same hair over and over again on players' skins

Well I don't have anything against people using the same style. :) This was for anyone who maybe used the same style and wanted to change a bit, but needed a nudge in the right direction.

I need to update this. This is so freaking old tho lol.
That's true! I mean, I don't think we should eliminate the side fringe totally, it's just important that people don't see it as the only option and it doesn't become default for skins. I think the use of different bang styles really helps to express individuality! :)

An update would be great! I really love your shading style! Whenever I attempt anything similar, it never goes to plan XD

Right now I'm dealing with some minor anxiety, and also working on a bunch of Christmas gifts for some friends but after the holidays, I should have time. Hopefully. And I understand. XD
I totally get it! Christmas is so busy. Don't rush yourself :) Take your time and prioritise your tasks. I really hope your anxiety settles down! I totally get it, buddy. I'm here if you want to chat!

Your welcome c:
That last one made me laugh so hard I freaking love these bangs! I might make a skin and use these bangs as ideas. Btw, awesome ideas! You inspired me to keep making skins and improve them. I usually make the cringey bangs that are used on Skindex a lot because I used to make skins not shaded, and learned to do the bangs off of other skins and the back hair which I've forgotten since I quit making skins for a few years! You've put hope in me and I hope people don't judge me for this long Comment! XD

I mean you can't be not generic with an 8x8 pixel set and not cover the whole face at the same time

Imma join this convo, I watched her back when Minecraft Kindergarten was still a thing. That was really the only series I liked on her channel, as it helped me with some of my ocs back then. My sister is really into the series now, and I agree that the content has become cringey and all about the ships. Anyway, sorry if it annoys you that I reply 5 months after, but I only just found this article.

It's all right! Everyone has opinions and personal preferences! I'm not one of those people who flip when someone disagrees with me. Honestly, lately aphmau has ticked me off. I just like Zane because he reminds me of other characters. XD

It was cool. And Honestly, ever since Season 2 of MCD, it went downhill. I swear, I just want ONE episode without Aarmau. Just 1 pls. ;;
My favorite one is style seven ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
