Start by drawing out the shape of a peanut filled M&M. When that is done you can then add the facial guidelines for the mask or face you are about to draw.


Now all you have to do is begin sketching out the tribal shape of her eyes and notice how they flare off on the ends like a flame. Lastly for this step, draw out the lining for her mouth like so.


Color in some of her lips, which is in the form of a geisha style of coloring. When that is done you can draw in the nose lining , and then finish off the eye design like so. Be sure to sketch out the brows to look like a tribal work of art, and one    


Thicken the outline of her face, and as you can see I've incorporated some tribal flames with the same lining I used for the mask.


The last thing you need to do is draw out the raging flaming hair style for the tribal mask, and when that is done you can begin erasing all the lines and shapes you drew in step one. I will be back to this step later today to add the tribal rose to    


Here is the tribal mask all buttoned up and beautiful. I hope you have a butt load of incredible fun with this lesson, I will be back later to add the tribal rose and when I do this sentence will be deleted. Great work everyone!

Description: Okay guys, I did it. I finally figured out what to call my awesome design I drew yesterday during Livestream. After careful thought and consideration, the face I drew yesterday is going to be called, “how to draw a tribal mask”, step by step. I am in love with this drawing, and I mean that literally. The style of the design is so epic to me, and I somehow still can’t believe that my mind came up with such a creation. Her face is beautiful but full of sorrow, and if you look closely, I also drew a tribal rose off to the left side of her face. The way the tribal mask design is drawn is completely amazing, and I hope you guys think so too. I love the way her hair is in the style of tribal flames, and I also love the way I incorporated the tears, and the lipstick on her mouth. The face screams sadness, and for a while I was going to call this tutorial how to draw sadness because that is all I felt when I looked at her face. I can honestly say that if I were going to get a tattoo of something unique, and beautiful, this would probably be it. This is by far one of my favorite tribal designs that I have drawn to date. I just keep staring at it wondering if I should have changed the color to red and black, or if she looks fine the way she stands now. Originally I was going to color in the entire drawing black with just the lips and rose being red. I think that might have been better if I did that, but oh well too late now. Maybe one of you guys can play with the coloring aspect of this tribal mask, and when you do be sure to upload your artwork to the site because I am so excited to see what some of you will do with this concept. I guess that is all for now. Maybe I will go sifting through my tutorial folder to see if there is any lessons I haven’t submitted yet, or that I forgot about. If I don’t upload anything else, I will be back at eight for another session of Livestream so come back for that, or you can even stick around for the whole day. Just kidding guys, just have fun with this tutorial that will teach you "how to draw a tribal mask". Peace out people, and be sure to enjoy the rest of your drawing day!
