How to Draw a Jawless Skull

Step 1.

First, start by drawing a head guide for the skull's face like so.

Step 2.

Next, begin sketching out the sockets for the eyes and the nasal cavity. Be aware that the lining is uneven. You will need to sketch in some surface detailing between the eyes. This will add texture to the skull's surface.

Step 3.

Now begin sketching out the scrawny looking face starting with the cheeks. They should be bony and pop out. After, draw the lining for the upper row of teeth, then sketch in detailing to the mouth and cheeks.

Step 4.

Fill in the grooves with skull like teeth. Move to step 5 to being the shading.

Step 5.

After you have perfected the skull to your liking, start the coloring and shading process. The eyes and nose should be solid black while the rest of the skulls face should be defined using a shading technique. Youtube has many videos on how to shade.   

Step 6.

Lastly, add more color and shading to create a dripping or pool of blood or fluid as it flows down the paper. Add some splatter if marks if wanted and then move on.

Step 7.

Lighten up some of the shading around the head and face. The drawing should end up like this. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial on a jawless skull! Keep on practicing.
