Description: I had so much fun drawing with you all yesterday, and what I drew was even more epic. I'm trying to get my “Skull” section filled up with at least fifty different tutorials so that members and visitors have an even wider selection when it comes to drawing skulls. Yesterday I sketched out a concept design of three different types of skull heads that came out phenomenal. I've decided to name this lesson “how to draw gangsta", step by step. The word “gangsta” is just a term used to describe a group of people that are what you call part of crew, posse, or even gang. In the drawing I wanted to represent three different types of ethnic races because there isn't one nationality that doesn't have some sort of connection with belonging to such a group. I will start from left to right, Caucasian, Latino, and African American. If I wanted I could've also include the Asian race too, but then the lesson would be too long. All three skulls came out looking almost perfect, and all three skulls are gangsta. I hope no-one takes offence to this art because it's not supposed to do so. This is really more like graffiti art that you would see spray painted on the sides of buildings, under subways, and even on brides off the highway. I feel that this is a unique drawing, and I had a lot of fun with it. I know you guys will like drawing gangsta because to be honest whether you like it or not, this type of art is in, and innocent art is out. The best artist is one that is real with himself, and with others. An artist never hides the truth even if it's a hard concept to grasp. Have fun with this lesson guys, and remember to keep practicing because when you want to draw a skull, you will be better then ever just by using these awesome tutorials. Peace people, and keep it real!
