Description: This next lesson that I am about to submit is sure to be a hit because I worked pretty hard on making it wicked cool and freaking awesome. I wanted to do some more tutorials on skulls but couldn’t figure out what I could incorporate a skull design with. So, I went to the one person that has a bigger imagination than me and that person was my mother. I asked my mother what type of skull I should draw and she threw several concepts at me. There was one that she mentioned that stood out and that was an idea of a skull with a military helmet. Now of course once she said that my mind just started coming up with cool ideas. I started sketching out the skull design and added an old fashioned military helmet which reminds me of the First World War. To make the skull look even more epic I decided to add a bullet in his mouth like he was biting down on it. But I didn’t want to draw any bullet; it had to be a bullet that was used in the war. So, the first thing that came to my mind was an AK-47. I drew a big AK-47 bullet to be placed in the soldier skull's mouth and then I drew a big blown out part of the skull and added a bullet hole to the left of the head. Since this was going to be a military skull tattoo design I colored his face with a green camouflage color which was also used by marines in the war. The ending sketch came out epic and now I will show you how to draw a solider skull tattoo design step by step. I know you will have an awesome time learning how to draw this skull because it is incredibly cool. All you have to do is follow the step by step instructions and you too will be on your way to drawing fun. I will be back with my last lesson of the day so stay tuned and keep your eyes open.
