How To Draw Another Demon Tattoo

Updated on March 8, 2010

Demon Tattoo Drawing

 Drawing demons is just fun for me, I draw them all of the time and so here follows another how to draw tutorial that focuses on a particularly complex demonic tattoo, one that involves complex tribal patterns surround the demon design and so I thought I would do a step by step guide on how to manage a complicated tattoo drawing and how to prepare it for a real tattoo if you need to.

Lots of people seem to like demons, they are great to look at and can be quite evil looking, soit is quite understandable that these are quite popular to have on shoulders and forearms especially as tattoos, what I find quite amazing though is those sleeve tattoos that cover the whole arm and these are just a work of art, to depict a demon but them produce all the other design elements surrounding it, is just ace.

Buy The Craft Of Tattooing For Some Great Tattoo Ideas

Step One: Get A Feel For Your Design!

 Sketch out ideas in a sketchbook, just go crazy sketching new ideas to find the one that you want to develop, it makes sense to produce many sketches in bulk, so that you create more ideas for other designs too, never overlook the long term strategies of producing work for the future as to think ahead is to plan ahead.

See the sketches I have done and try to some some quick sketches of our own.

Step 2: Take Your Best Quick Sketch And Develop It!

Developing your sketch is quite easy once you have done this before, the ways of doing this are to start to define your drawing and improve on it's design so I have opted to start over on a new design, by adding other small details that could make it better to look at later on and also by trying to inter weave the design of the tribal elements around your demon drawing is a great idea as you'll find that most tattoos do this to some degree.

See the drawing I've done and you can therefore see how it will improve from the beginning sketch.

Drawing The Full Pencil Lines On Your Demonic Tattoo

This stage is the most important as you can start to sketch more details in on the demon tattoo and it should look near enough complete.

Step 3: Darker Lines Make A Clearer Design

 By adding darker pencil lines and shadow to your demonic piece you are strengthening your tattoo design and are going to make it more clearer to see all of the details and seperating the light and dark areas is better for the tattooist to understand the design and create an accurate tracing of it.

Ink Your Demon Tattoo

Ink in all of the dark areas needed to add a permanence to your tattoo art.

Inking your Demon Tattoo

Adding the ink is the final stage, although you can add colour too which I have not, but you can, just remember to try and make it a bright and visually dynamic tattoo with some light sources coming from a few angles.

I use gel pens mainly for inking, but larger areas I have been known to use black Sharpie markers, anything that produces a good strong black line and dark area the better.
