Hi. My name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to draw bangs in Illustrator. So what I've done is I've already drawn a head shape. And I'm basically just going to show you two ways to draw bangs in Illustrator. So, you definitely are going to want to start by just drawing on of these head shapes. And just make sure it's on a layer and make sure that layer's locked. Because if it's not, you can easily mess with your drawing and you don't want that. So,I'm going to go ahead and use the pencil tool and start drawing some hair. And so actually I'm using a Pen Tablet which is ideal in this situation. If you have a mouse that's fine too. And actually I decided I'm going to use the paint brush tool because it's a little bit more fancy looking. So, I'm just going to, we're going to start off with some swoop bangs. And you can easily just kind of finish them going outside going back around the head like so. Now, suppose you think this line is too thick and in my case I think it's too thick. So I'm just going to select all that I've drawn and go to stroke up here and select a different stroke weight. So let's try .5. And yeah, that already looks better. And you can actually, if you select all your hair, you can actually group it. And that way if you want to move it, it'll just move right off pf the head. That is how you draw bangs in Illustrator. My name's Alex Cecilio. Thank you very much.
