How to Draw a Realistic Minecraft Zombie

Artist: Dawn / December 10, 2013

Step 1.

The first thing you have to do is draw out the two guides for the body and head. Sticking with the block style concept, draw the head in a square manner. Sketch in the facial guidelines, then draw out the odd shape for the torso guide. Add the limb l   

Step 2.

You will begin defining the shape of this realistic Minecraft zombie. Add definition near the right temple where the brow would be.

Step 3.

Next, take your time as you begin drawing out the shapes of the eyes. They should be beady, dark, and sunken in. Sketch in the hollow nose socket like so, then draw in the cheek bone structure. To get that pinched look around the end of the nose, add   

Step 4.

Up next, sketch out the wide shaped or open hole in the face for the mouth. This will be a lipless mouth. Add the pucker marks around the mouth line, then sketch in the wrinkle streaks down the cheek.

Step 5.

Next, draw in the teeth in a skeletal manner. They should all be touching each other like a skeleton's mouth or mandibles align with one another.

Step 6.

Add the few chunks of hair that falls on each side of the head. Add a bony style circular pattern around the eyes to make the brows bulge out. Add some skin spots from rotting or decaying flesh.

Step 7.

We are ready to draw in the body. Start with the shoulders then draw the back, shoulders and sleeves from this zombie's ripped and torn shirt. Add the V lined collar.

Step 8.

Add detailing to the neck which are veins and stretched neck lines. Add more detail to the shirt, then move to step nine.

Step 9.

We will focus on drawing the arms. Notice how they are in a stiff cramped looking pose. The fingers should be short and squared.

Step 10.

Finish drawing out the shirt which is just the ends. Notice how the shirt has many rips, holes and tears. Add some skin detailing to the arm and fingers like so.

Step 11.

You will now try to keep things simple by drawing the flat style legs. The legs look more like boards then anything else. Add the rips in the pants, then some other minor definition.

Step 12.

Draw the flat feet and then draw in the toes. Add some nails, then erase those mistakes. You will also need to erase the guidelines you made in step one.

Step 13.

When you are all done your Minecraft zombie should come out looking real. Color it in, and show off what you have just accomplished.

Description: You wanted them, so now you will get them. Here is a lesson that will show you "how to draw realistic Minecraft zombie", step by step. These zombies can really look like anything. I wanted to think of a real good idea to represent the zombies from Minecraft. I tried keeping that blocky style, and I also tried to stay with the characteristics of the realistic Creeper I uploaded yesterday. especially when it comes to the eyes, and mouth. Also the style of the character design all has to correlate with one another. Anyways, I hope you guys will be pleased with my original version of a realistic Minecraft zombie. I shall return with one more realistic Minecraft character. Can you guess who or what it will be on?
