Description: This is a digital painting I made a couple days ago and while I was live I also worked on it because I really wanted to finish it off so I can submit it as a lesson. To start the day I will finish uploading my tuts from yesterday that I didn't get a chance to do. So here is "how to draw skull tattoos", step by step. What I love about this drawing (besides the painting) is the concept design. I love how the skull came out looking like it has this rocky texture to go with rough horns. In another view of this skull you could either say it's have bull half man, or you can say it is the skull of the devil. Whatever idea that comes to mind works for me. Now that I have uploaded this lesson, it's now time for you to start drawing a tattoo of a skull in your own way. Peace out people and enjoy.
