How to Draw Tribal Alien

Artist: Dawn / March 9, 2014

Step 1.

The beginning guideline is a simple swirl like so. Draw this swirl to get started.

Step 2.

You will use some of that guideline to draw the elongated slope shape for the head, then separately draw the mouth section for the Alien.

Step 3.

Next, draw the sections of curved/curled parts to make up the rest of Alien's face and upper body.

Step 4.

Using the rest of the guideline you will sketch out the body starting behind the back section of the head. As you pass the torso the body lining starts forming small rounded spikes that act like s spine for the Alien's body design.

Step 5.

Begin coloring in the Alien leaving clear marks down the back, spine and through the tail.

Step 6.

Finish coloring the tribal Alien design to complete this lesson. Erase the mistakes before you do any coloring.

Step 7.

If you chose to use black as your color, your drawing should end up looking like the tribal Alien you see here. Great job folks, and keep up the good work.

Description: This is one lesson that I like very much. It is a concept made up of two things I like, the movie Alien, and tribal art. Today I will show you "how to draw tribal Alien", step by step. The design is just a simple swirl with etched in lines and shapes that makes this piece fantastic. If you are a fan of Ridley Scott's Alien and H. R. Giger's artistic mind, then this is a lesson for all you fans out there. Drawing a tribal Alien design would also make a wonder tattoo. I hope you enjoy, there is more coming your way.
