How to Draw a Skull on Fire

Artist: Dawn / December 21, 2009

Step 1.

Drawing a skull on fire is going to be easier than you think. Start with a circle and then add the facial guidelines for the bony face. Next draw the outlined shape for the jaw.

Step 2.

Now you can draw out the shape of the eye cavities, and then draw the shape for the nose. Once those shapes are drawn out you can color in the holes and then start sketching in the cracks on the skulls forehead, around the eyes, and around the nose.

Step 3.

You will now start sketching out the shape of the skulls head shape which is of course misshapen and old looking. Sketch the shape of the cheek bones and then add more detailing cracks on the cheeks, and more on the forehead.

Step 4.

You will now start sketching out the shape of the top jaw, as well as the bottom jaw. When that is done you can color in the hollow mouth and then sketch out each tooth for the top and bottom teeth. Be sure to add detailing and definition around the    

Step 5.

For your last drawing step you will sketch out the flames so that your skull drawing is turned into a skull on fire. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.

Step 6.

Now that you are done, your drawing should look like the one you see here. I hope you guys liked this awesome tutorial on "how to draw a skull on fire, step by step".

Description: I'm back with another lesson that I drew a few days ago when I was live. I have a lot going on right now, as far as trying to improve the operational aspects of, which is why I forgot to upload this tutorial. I will start the day by showing you “how to draw a skull on fire, step by step”. This should be a very basic and simple lesson for you to draw, and I know that some of you may like the lesson. I know that Christmas is only three days away, and this is not something you would want to be drawing right now, but to be honest, it would have went up a couple days ago if my mind wasn't so cluttered. I wanted to sketch out the skull in a different position than I usually draw skulls in. Instead of sketching out this skull from the side, or front, I figured it would be cool to draw the skull from an under angle. Drawing skulls is goo fun and you can make them look raw, mean, pretty, hip, gothic, or any other type of style you think would be cool. Adding flames or fire to different designs can make a drawing look ten times better than it would without the flames. When you draw this skull with fire, you will see that adding fire to any skull concept really isn't all that hard to do. I will be adding this tutorial to the skulls section under the “pop culture” category. This design would also make an awesome tattoo for anyone that loves skull tattoo art. Drawing tattoos is fun too and I should probably do a tattoo drawing sometime in the future. Anyways, for those of you that watched me draw this skull live, you know that we had fun that day when I was drawing live. I present this lesson to all of you other artists out there that want to know “how to draw a skull on fire, step by step”. I will be back with some more drawing fun so stay tuned in to see what pops up next! Peace peeps and happy drawing.
