Step 1.

Okay so I decided to go ahead and make the step by step tutorial on the entire body for your x-ray skull or skeleton. Start by making a large circle for the head guide, then draw out the square shaped torso. You will then draw in the guidelines for t   

Step 2.

Next, begin sketching out the bony design of the chibi style skull starting with sketching out the shape of the head. Draw in the temples like so, then draw in the bottom jaw. Add some definition to the cheeks too.

Step 3.

The next thing we will do is sketch out the sockets for the eyes like so, as well as the nose holes and teeth for both the top and bottom jaw. Sketch in the definition around the eyes to define the brows, then add detailing on the sides of the head f   

Step 4.

Now that the head and face is done, you can draw out the body. Start with the first neck bone, then draw the collar bones for the shoulders. Sketch out the chest bone in the center of the torso. I think this is also called the breast bone but I'm not   

Step 5.

Sketch out the upper arm bones, then draw the robs as well as the broken rib to the right side. Draw in the tiny heart, the proceed on.

Step 6.

Finish sketching out the arm bones followed by the skeletal hands. You will then draw in the waist and hip bones like so, then move to step seven.

Step 7.

For your final step all you have to do is sketch out the leg bones, as well as the knee, ankle, and foot bones. When you are done you can start erasing the mistakes.

Step 8.

When you are finished, this is how your skeleton should come out looking. I hope you had fun drawing an x-ray folks!

Description: Here is a really cool design concept that I enjoyed creating immensely. I was initially going to draw out the entire body, but that was going to make this lesson to complex to tackle. Instead I went ahead and just made the lesson on "how to draw an x-ray skull", step by step chibi style. The skull ended up coming out really swell. The actual tutorial is going to be simple to tackle because as you can see it's nothing more than a child like skull that is drawn in an x-ray style. The coloring is what actually makes it look like an x-ray. I have always wanted to draw an x-ray, so I guess here is my chance. Enjoy this lesson and be sure to stay tuned in. Adios people and have fun.
