Step 1.

Alright, zombies can be very difficult to draw, depending on the amount of detail you add to them. By having a lot of details, you'll have yourself a pretty epic zombie. Start off with the foundation of the basis of your zombie. I recommend using a r   

Step 2.

Next, draw the basic frame for the head and neck. This is where I ALWAYS start my drawings. By drawing the head first, you'll be less likely to draw the body smaller. Once you're finished with drawing the frame, work on inner details. Zombies are usu   

Step 3.

Now, we can start forming the arms of death. You don't want to get caught in a zombie's grasp! Start with the frame of the arms, this way, you can add other minor details without getting confused. A helpful hint is to remember that even though this i   

Step 4.

Step 5.

Now we are moving down to his pants and left arm. Put the wrinkles in his pants to give the appearance of being used. Add fingers to his left hand. By drawing brief detailing on the skin, it will make the zombie seem it's flesh is rotting and withere

Description: OMG, ZOMBIES!! Hey, this is Drago speaking. Today's tutorial will be about Zombies. This tutorial will teach you the basics on how to draw a zombie. Everyone knows those popular Resident Evil games, right? (I love those games. They give me the chills when my brother and I play them.) Who doesn't love Resident Evil? I do, and they inspired me to draw this zombie. How do Zombies form? Zombies come to life by a plague or sometimes (in stories) by an unknown disease. It all starts with just one infected host. This person then turns into a zombie and craves flesh. They are mindless monsters that have only one objective on their mind and that are BRAINS! Not really. Well...not just brains but human flesh! Muhahahahahahaha! Er...em. Now, when this 'thing' finds its prey, they feed and infect the person. Then, this person (even when dead) gets infected and awakes as a zombie. Come on! How simple is that!? Now do you know what a zombie is? Zombies star in tons of movies like, Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, and a whole bunch of movies. Follow these 'zombie' steps and you'll be able to draw on your own. Without me...Lol! Oh yeah, I also have a much easier tutorial on how to draw a cartoon zombie that you can check out as well.
