Description: It's been a while since I drew and uploaded some cool lessons that would make members and visitors say “wow” or “that's cool”. I figured it was time to get back into my old off the wall art routine, and submit a few epic drawings that I drew live yesterday. I will start by showing you "how to draw a gambler skull", step by step. I have to say, it was really hard coming up with a name for this tutorial. I have so many skull drawings that I submitted over time, that finding names for new concepts can sometimes leave me stumped. The skull design that I drew yesterday is wicked cool. It has a set of devilish horns, and evil looking eyes. The tongue is a dollar bill and there is gold pieces that are flying out of it's mouth. You heard of lucky seven's right? Well, the two cards you see in the background are 7's. To finish it all off, I also drew in a nice flaming background to bring hot excitement to the plate. This has got to be one of my favorite skull drawing to date, and I am really proud on how it came out. It shouldn't be hard for you guys to tackle this lesson that will teach you "how to draw a gambler skull", step by step. I know it's not drawn in the typical style, which is a skull wearing a black top hat with four aces spread and pinned to the hat, while the skull head is smoking a cigar. I love creating my own versions to be different and stay original. Well I guess that does it for now. I will be back with more cool stuff to draw momentarily. Peace out, and be a ruthless dealer!
