Draw Skulls Easy

 Draw skulls easily with the following tips....

Over the last few weeks I have been busy, hard at work on several drawing tutorials and ebooks and a graphic novel, which means I've done quite a few more drawings for various projects that I've had running and one of them is a how to draw skulls ebook, but for the promotion of it when I release it I thought about taking a couple of tips contained within that ebook and present them here to show you how to draw skulls quite easily.

The following two videos are near enough the same, but they give you slightly different drawings one in pencil and the other in ink, so I thought they would give you some guidance on drawing skulls very easily, as there is no me talking on the video, I've provided a short description of the steps to take when drawing a skull to help you out.

Here's the first video...

The Second Video Drawn With A Sharpie

In this second video I sketch a skull with a sharpie to show you pretty much the same thing, but it's best to practice drawing skulls right?

I draw a large circle for the skulls head and then a smaller circle for the lower jaw and this gives you the frame work to build on, with eyes, skulls nose, teeth and then joining the skull together with the jaw.

Add a few extra details and then you're done, the more you practice the better at drawing skulls you'll get, it's the same with anything you draw I suppose, practice makes perfect.
