How to Draw an Easy Skull

Artist: Dawn / May 25, 2010

Step 1.

This is a sketch I did to show you three different types of skulls that are easy to draw. The one I will be giving a lesson on, is the larger of the three. If you want to add the fangs, you can go ahead and do so. Let's get started shall we?

Step 2.

First draw a large circle, or a size shape that you want the skull to be. Once you have done this, just draw in the facial guidelines.

Step 3.

Now, use the facial guidelines you drew in step one to draw out the eyes. These two shapes look like two tear drops being viewed sideways. Once the eye sockets are drawn, you can begin coloring them in.

Step 4.

Here is another easy step, draw the shape of the nose which is a soft triangle. Color the nose socket in as well and then move to step five.

Step 5.

Draw out the shape of the skull, or thicken the circle line that you drew in step one. Once the top half of the head is drawn, you can then draw each the structure of the skulls face shape starting with the temples like you see here.

Step 6.

Okay, you are almost done with this lesson. All I want you to do now is draw out the shapes of the skull's cheeks, and then draw the shape of the upper jaw. When you sketch out this part of the mouth, be sure to add the grooves for the teeth that you   

Step 7.

All you have to do here is draw out each individual tooth. Take your time when doing this so that each tooth looks even and consistent. This is also your last drawing step so what you want to do is start erasing the lines and one shape you drew in st   

Step 8.

Look how incredibly awesome your new skull came out looking. All you need to do now is color it in. I hope you had fun with this tutorial. Be sure to join me for more drawing fin in the future.
