How to Draw Day of the Dead Girl

Step 1.


You will begin with drawing out a shape for the girl's face. Sketch in the facial guidelines like so, then move to step two.

Step 2.


Sketch out the shape of the girl's face like so, then draw in the arched shape for her shoulder. You will then draw the one piece of hooked over bang.

Step 3.


Begin sketching out the face starting with the thick, and nicely shaped eyebrows. You will then draw the nose, and shape of her simple looking lips or mouth.

Step 4.


Next, since this girl's face is colored to look like a skull, you will draw out the shapes of the circles around the eye area. Draw the nose as well as the definition for the cheeks. Draw skull designed lines on the mouth, then you move to step five.

Step 5.


Draw out the eyes, then add detailing above the eyelids. Don't forget to color in the pupils.

Step 6.


You are almost done guys. Draw out the lily looking flower that this dead girl is wearing in her hair. The center of the flower is designed like a skull so make sure to get that right.

Step 7.


Continue to draw out the curly style of her hair, then you can begin erasing the mistakes as well as guidelines when you are all done.

Step 8.


Your drawing for the day of the dead girl should look like the one you see here. Color her in and that's it. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Does anyone have any advice on the best medium to use to color this tut in? I want it to look as similar to the main picture as possible. I have markers, colored pencils (water color and regular) I even have crayons. I was thinking of using markers and stippling but I'm not sure. I really like the textured look of the original.

Description: As for another lesson on the female face, here is a tutorial that will be on something festive for some nationalities. Up next, you will learn "how to draw Day of the Dead girl", step by step. I really like this type of art design because the drawings or art for the festive Spanish celebration of Day of the Dead is real vivid and different than anything I have ever seen. The contrast of colors used for designing sugar skulls is out of this world. So if you love drawing stuff related to Day of the Dead, you will love drawing a Day of the Dead girl. Have fun and remember to rate, comment, or fav. Adios mi amigos, and good luck.
