Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head and then make a straight slightly slanted lines for the body.

Step 2.

Draw out the actual shape of the reaper's head, face and skull, and then draw the lining for the hood that frames the top of the face or head.

Step 3.

Now you will draw out the eye, and then the nose and mouth. The mouth is actually tooth lines. Color in the eye and nose and hen draw in the crinkle between the eyes.

Step 4.

Draw out the very straight edged lining of the hood like so, and then draw the sleeve.

Step 5.

Now you can draw out the reaper's body and then at the bottom of the cloak draw the curled up edges for the bottom of the cloak.

Step 6.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the stick or handle for the scythe, and then draw in the blade and hands. Erase or clean up the drawing and than you are done.

Step 7.

Here is the last drawing step. Now you can go ahead and color in your drawing. You now have an awesome drawing on the grim reaper.
