Description: So I have the most coolest lesson that I will upload today and it's on another skull design in the face of the best villain ever created. Here is how to draw Darth Vader Skull, step by step. I had so much fun recreating Vader into skull art. If you think about it he has the perfect helmet/mask to make a skeleton concept out of. Anyways, I'm not going to keep you folks here too long talking about this iconic Star Wars character or villain because I think you all know everything you need to when it comes to Darth Vader. Instead, I will let you tackle the task of drawing a Darth Vader Skull and return in a bit with more fun lessons to follow. Adios people and may the force be dark with you.
