Draw A Zombie Santa Face - How To Draw An Undead Santa Claus Face

How To Draw A Zombie Santa Face

Drawing a zombie Santa was fun as you might know from my previous hubpage - Drawing a Zombie Santa Clause, so I thought why not just do a quick drawing tutorial on how to draw a zombie Santa face for fun and so here we are.

This Zombie art design I did put on my Zazzle store, although I did color it with Gimp, the free art software I do realise I need to learn a bit more about that computer program to make my art more professional looking.

Drawing a zombie Santa is the same process, you need to sketch out a basic shape and try to develop it through a succession of 3-5 drawings. From pencil sketch right through to an inked over drawing and then an optional color one if you want to.

See an alternative to the following Zombie Santa drawing how to draw a Zombie Santa Video here and then see How I Inked The Santa Zombie face here

Sketch The Zombie Head/Face Shape

 As usual the head must be drawn to whatever position you want it and so I have opted for a slight side view of our zombie Santa face and I have marked out as usual the cross which helps you to know where the eyes will fall on the face, because once you have the eyes marked out you can then have everything else all lined up, like the nose, the mouth and the ears (In this case half an ear!)

The basic shape of the face does look basic, but it really does help give you an idea how to develop the face later on if you draw stuff starting out this way.

Adding To The Oval Face Shape

 By drawing directly on top of your initial face shape you can then build the zombie Santa face we are attempting to create quite quickly, instead of starting another piece of paper, it is best to save paper and use the piece you already have.

I've marked in the jaw line here and sketched in some of the beard and basic features, which at the time I didn't think would stay as I first drew them, but no I stuck with it and it worked out ok.

Although at this stage the zombie Santa looks like he will crack out a smile if he hasn't already and that will simply not do, not on my watch!

Drawing The Zombie With A Few Mistakes Erased

 Erasing mistakes could be needed in any drawing and this was no different and so I corrected some of the slight mistakes and then started to make the face look more zombie like and slightly more menacing or as menacing as you can get with an almost cartoon zombie Santa drawing.

I wanted to make the Santa Zombie more complete at this stage, because I knew how it would look and so it had to be brought together quick with some quick sketch decisions.

Finished Zombie Santa Inked Drawing

At the inking stage I added a few details that wasn't in the last draft such as a few blood dribbles which helped to make it appear a tiny bit zombie like and the absence of any pupils on the eyes I kept too.

I used a black sharpie marker though and I wish I would have used a thinner point marker pen, but still the overall drawing turned out quite well I think

Have fun drawing Zombie Santa faces!

      Interesting to learn how to draw. I'm not inclined to do it, but could try. Most likely not be successful. LOL! But, you make it look easy. Great hub! :)

      If only I could transfer to paper or screen what I paint in my head the world would possibly be filled with masterpieces. Unfortunately, for me, that is unlikely to happen. But this article may go some way to getting a passable scribble down.

      It takes a wild imagination, I am so envious of your drawing skills, but I may just have a try as you lay it out so well.

      I got the idea from Day of the Dead, that classic 80's zombie movie and in that film I saw a zombie clown and that just made me think of drawing a Zombie Santa....
