How to Draw Skeleton Warrior

Artist: Dawn / October 15, 2014

Step 1.

Start with a circle for the head, then draw a shape for the body. You will add facial guidelines and then the limbs for the arms.

Step 2.

Using the circle for the head guide, begin sketching out the skull. This should also include the cheek bones and upper jaw.

Step 3.

Next, we will draw in the large eye sockets and then color them in. You will also draw and color in the nasal cavity, then draw the teeth. When that is all done add indent detailing to the skull and under the eyes.

Step 4.

We will now begin drawing the torso. Start with some ribs, then color in the gap between them. When that is done draw the bone plates for shoulder armor.

Step 5.

You will draw in three plates on the left shoulder in a layered pattern, then add one more plate or shingle to the right shoulder.

Step 6.

Detail and define the plates or shingles like so, then move to step seven.

Step 7.

Up next, draw the arms and then the rest of the torso or upper body rib cage. When you draw in the arms remember that they need to be in the form of bones.

Step 8.

All you have to do here is draw in the skeletal fingers and hands, then draw in the hips or pelvic area.

Step 9.

Almost done just a little further to go. Draw the legs. Notice that the legs are drawn using two bones; the thigh and shin bone.

Step 10.

You will now draw in the skeletal feet and toes like so. When that is done move to step eleven which is the last drawing step.

Step 11.

Every warrior needs a weapon so give your skeletal warrior a sword. Draw the bone handle, then draw the hand guard and blade. Add some nice detailing to the sword for that medieval look. Erase your mistakes and you are all done.

Step 12.

Here is the line art now that you are all done. You can go ahead and color in your drawing or leave it as a inked image.
