How to Draw Skull Kid


Start the first step by drawing a facial shape of a heart.


Next up, sketch out the shapes of the eyes, then draw the markings around the eyes which adds a flare.


Next, draw the horns, then draw the spikes on Skull Kid's mask along the sides of the face. You will then draw in the pupils, then sketch out more of the marking designs scattered on the mask or face.


Continue working on Skull Kid's mask which are rays of wood that surround the mask. The edges should have notches in them so the strips come out looking like wood.


Finish up the mask by drawing the shape of the smaller object that is behind the facial mask. Sketch in more feather like pieces which is a tuft on the back part of the head.


Now that the head is all done, you can start on the body beginning with the small plank pieces of wood that makes a collar around the neck.


Draw in the forearms, then draw the gloves along with the hands. You will add detailing to the arms so they come out looking like wood or small branches.


For the last drawing step you will draw out the body which is in the form of a tied long shirt. Draw the four ringed belt, then sketch in the detailing to the legs which should also look like small tree trunks. Add the pleats to the shirt, then erase   


The line art for skull kid comes out looking like the character you see here. Color him in and be sure to take your time because there is a lot of different colors to use.
