How to Draw an Evil Skull

Artist: Dawn / June 23, 2009

Step 1.

Start with a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw out the shape of the back and then draw the guidelines for the wings fingers and tail.

Step 2.


Step 3.

Now that the guidelines and shapes are drawn out you can start sketching out the shape of the skulls head, horns, and then the wide open mouth. Sketch in the teeth and then sketch out the soft looking hairy body that this evil skull has and then draw   

Step 4.

Once you reach this step you will start sketching out the long fingers and arms that make up the right wing and then continue to sketch out the left foot and leg. Add more detailing and then move to the next step.

Step 5.

Wow look how far you have come with this tutorial. Start sketching out the loose, torn, and tattered right wing and then the left wing claw. Sketch in more detailing on the hair and then draw a line for the long pointed tail.

Step 6.

Detail the tissue of the wing and then thicken the shape of the tail and draw the pointed tip that looks like a devil tail. You will finish the shape of the left wing arm and then add more definition and detailing. Erase all the guidelines and shapes   

Step 7.

This is what your character should look like when you are done and all you have to do now is color in your evil, scary looking creature. I hope you guys had fun with lesson on "how to draw an evil skull" step by step.

Description: It’s time for another skull tattoo tutorial but this time I am going to put it in the “skulls” category under pop culture. This is a really cool and unique creation that I conjured up and at first I was going to add some colored shaded but then I chose not to. I have so many skulls uploaded here already but I never really did a design that looked like pure evil. So in light of that I am going to show you “how to draw an evil skull step by step“. The concept was thought up after I watched a low budget movie the other day(btw low budgets are the best), and there was this cool messed up looking beastly thing flying toward this damsel in distress. Even though the monster thing was so cheesy looking, I thought it was actually a good base for a new character design creation. The design itself may be a bit complex for novice artists and even a tiny bit difficult for intermediate artists, but the main thing is, if you take your time, be patient, and relax you will end up with an awesome creature drawing for your wall, portfolio, even book cover. As a matter of fact whenever anybody wants to teach themselves “how to draw skulls”, you always end up adding some really cool perks and quirks. Well, it is now time that I depart from my writing and leave you to this tutorial on “how to draw an evil skull step by step. Peace out and happy drawing folks!
