New Poll - Hair Length
This week's poll is rather unusual, as I would never have come up with it myself, so miskatsura did it for me. I didn't even realize that there's this many options for hair length. The order is from shortest to longest.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Pokemon
Sun - votes: 679 (8.6%)
Moon - votes: 1078 (13.7%)
Either. Don't know the difference - votes: 672 (8.5%)
I wish I had a 3DS sad - votes: 1444 (18.3%)
Haven't played Pokemon in years... - votes: 1866 (23.7%)
Don't care - votes: 2143 (27.2%)
There were 7882 total votes.
The poll ended: November 26th 2016

Of those who actually would play, they prefer Moon over Sun. I wonder why...

No preference. Whether female or male, I have almost no preferences for characters' looks in fiction. What matters is personality, after all.

Gotta say, neck to shoulder is where it's at for me. Might be because some characters I like have that hair length.

"Longer than floor (what a drag) ". Nice pun.

I'm sure I do have a hair length preference, but when there's so many options it becomes too cumbersome to choose.

No preference.
Bitching about Female main's hair would be one of those first world problems

Gotta say though, if I'm drawing just a single panel I'll probably go for a head-to-waist/hip one (like Saeko in my sig). For more panels head-to-neck one would help minimizing some work properly. Don't know what pros think anyway.

No preference. I am here for the writing.
Mid-back is winning, hm. That´s slightly shorter than my hair length, as going lower is a bit impractical.

Too many choices, so "No preference" is it.

Not sure what "classic" length hair would be... can somebody explain it to me? none

Quote from vigorousjammer

I believe the poll means hair that you used to see on anime girls before 2002. I am not sure on this though.


I don't have a specific preference. As long as they have hair I don't really care where their hair falls.


» residentgrigo on November 26th, 2016, 2:55pm

How did you settle on 2002 for "classic"? The older Miyazaki girl all have shorter hair for example and hair length doesn´t correspond to a time period. Hair styles do, but these aren´t the topic. They would be a more interesting topic though.

This poll uses the human body as a measurement, so classic is in the middle of Tailbone and Mid-thigh by that logic.

No preference really, though I guess thinking about the female characters I like, they tend to have shorter hair, though that's maybe because certain character traits tend to dictate manga female character hair length or vice versa.


» eccentrrick on November 26th, 2016, 1:58pm

Never thought about it (no preference). I have more of a preference for hair color though!


» mysstris on November 26th, 2016, 2:08pm

depends on the personality. Often hair says something about what type of person you are. And if it's long hair for a girl, how you style/dress it says something.


» Gomgoru on November 26th, 2016, 2:57pm

I voted knee length, because more can be done with it.

And. Because the poll bought back the memory bigrazz《sigh》smile wink grin

Because I knew a girl who had hair that long, actually it was floor length. Only a few people knew how long her hair was, even after she did a Hawaiian hula dance, grass skirt and everything eyes , in a fundraiser, before the whole high school, with it almost all down! She was very cute! eek

Normally she wore it up with the ends at shoulder blade length (bra length). So most never notice. smile wink grin

Memories. cry What Can You Do? shy

Male or Female, I don't really have a preference as far as length.

I have far more opinions for style (and hair art style) though, but that's for another poll.
