Drawing A Zombie Face

Drawing A Zombie Face Drawing Video 2 parter

A twisted Zombie is my own phrase that essentially means a rotten Zombie with missing facial features and in this case the Zombie we shall learn to draw in the face to start off with has no bottom jaw bone and the tongue is all a rotten looking mess too and that's what is fun about drawing a Zombie face, keeping it real and as undead as you like.

Using whatever sketching pencils that you are comfortable with is the best way to start. I use a really soft grade pencil in these videos most of the time as they are nice and dark and you can still sketch with them, even though they produce a thick dark line on the paper they can be rubbed out quite easily, so long as you haven't pressed too hard on the papers surface with them. A 4 or 5B pencil is ideal, although a standard HB drawing pencil is good too.

The start of the Zombie head sketch is taken up by a lot of draft sketching to get a feel for the Zombie drawing and you can produce a good piece of Zombie art if you just have confidence in the process and just go for it. Watch in the art video to see how you begin to draw a head of a Zombie as this is the basics of drawing most creatures, the head first helps to set up the full figure later on in some quite mysterious way.

Zombie Face Inking

When inking with any ink pen, the drawing has to look better in some way, an improved drawing for one makes you feel better about the drawing process and helpful for you to grow as an artist.

I use a combination of gel ink pens and fine line ink pens which seem like they were intended for writing, but I always hijack them for my drawing projects. Ink pens come in many different ranges from cheap to expensive. I always go for cheap, because then you aren't disappointed when an expensive pen fails to ink properly.

Drawing Zombie Faces Step By Step

When drawing Zombie heads and faces step by step it is much easier to follow photos of each step along the way. So here you will see some different examples of me drawing very individual Zombie Faces that look very rotten.

The first one below I tried to aim for a nice finished inked look on a Zombie Head that shows that it has some character at least with a large wooden stake sticking through the back of it's head and poking out of it's mouth.

The second Zombie face drawing is more of a quick sketch and one that is more skull based as a working design. It appears more in a draft stage that can be shaped even more after inking. But it's an idea, an alternative to have a go at.
