How to Draw a Skull Rose

Artist: Dawn / November 2, 2010

Step 1.

Start by drawing two circles with a smaller one inside of the larger one. When this is done add the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Now begin sketching out the actual shape of the small skull that is in the middle of the rose. As you can see the skull has very prominent cheek bones, and a full row of top skeletal teeth.

Step 3.

Before you go any further with the skull, you will need to sketch out the petals of the rose in a spread out formation like you see here. When roses are bloomed fully, you can see the very center of the rose. Once the petals are drawn, move to the ne   

Step 4.

Continue to draw out the petals and then when that is all set, you can draw out the eye sockets, and the nose hole. Color all three holes in and then add some definition.

Step 5.

For the last step draw out the bones, and then draw out the leaves. You have to make sure that the leaves contain serrated edges and a definition line in the middle. Erase all the unwanted lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 6.

This is how your drawing looks when you are all done with the sketch. I hope you had a blast with this tutorial on how to draw a skull rose, step by step.
