How to Draw a Trippy Skull

Artist: Dawn / June 17, 2014

Step 1.

Start off by making a circle then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the circle, begin drawing out the structure of the skull's face. This looks almost like a squished patty.

Step 3.

The first thing you will draw in the brows. They should be prominent to the face for that expressive stare. Next, draw the nasal cavity then draw in the arcs for the teeth.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw out the squinting eyes. They should be shaped like lemon drops. Add the detailing to the top and bottom lids too. This is just crease and fold lines.

Step 5.

Define the cheeks like so, then draw in some detailing around the base of the nasal cavity.

Step 6.

Finish drawing the skull's head in a mushroom cap like shape. There should be an under lid along the brow or forehead of the skull. Add the detailing to the odd head shape, then proceed to step seven.

Step 7.

All you have to do here is draw in some random spots on the cap, then draw in the rib lines on the under lid. This is where spores come from on a normal mushroom.

Step 8.

Finish drawing the teeth, then draw the long, thick tongue.

Step 9.

And finally, draw the bottom jaw along with the fangs for bottom teeth. Add some shading inside the mouth and detailing along the bottom lip. Erase your mistakes and guides people.

Step 10.

In the end you should have something like this to color in. I hope you enjoyed drawing a trippy skull folks.
