Description: Well so far today I have submitted three tutorials and all of them are pretty cool. Let’s do a quick recap on the ones that I put up so far shall we? First I submitted a lesson on how to draw drama masks, and then I showed you all how to draw a devil face, and then most recently I showed you how to draw a solider skull step by step. Now, for my last lesson of the day I will be showing you how to draw a spade skull step by step. This is another tattoo design that in my book, is pretty epic. Unlike the devil face, this was not something I found in my cousins tattoo art book. Instead I was going threw some of my old drawings and came across the flaming dice and the casino cards I drew a while back. I know that the spade is a pretty popular design that has been making its mark into pop culture, so to make the spade more exciting than it already is; I wanted to do something totally cool. I incorporated a skull within the drawing of a spade. Yeah sure there are other designs out there that do the same thing, but to make mine stand out I sketched out my own design. Spades are wicked cool looking and because the most popular and common color for a spade is black, it is a favorite design of mine. There is in fact a tool that is called a spade and that tool is a shovel used for digging large amounts of soil or dirt. In this case the spade that I am showing you how to draw is a symbol used in the deck of cards. There is a game that I love playing and that is called spades. Another symbol or card that is popular is the “ace of spades” and this card is used with Blackjack or 21 and other card games that are commonly played with a deck of cards. This tattoo design is epic and I love the background that I put it in. This lesson will show you an easy way to learn how to draw a spade skull step by step. I will be back tomorrow with more awesome tutorials, but in the mean time have fun with the four I submitted today for you all. Peace out people and until next time.
