How to Draw a Skull

Step 1.

Start off the first step with a circle shape which is going to be the base of the skull. You will also need to draw in facial guide lines so you can draw in the eyes and jaw evenly.

Step 2.

Now, draw the eye sockets and make sure that they are evenly apart from each other so they don't look cross eyed. After, draw the skeletal shape nose and add some crease lines just under the eyes for added detailing and skull awesomeness.

Step 3.

Sketch the cheek bones on the skull and the upper jaw outline and shape. You will also need to draw in the grooves for each tooth which will be filled in later.

Step 4.

This step is important cause we will thicken the lining for the head as well as draw it out with more definition. Then fill in those grooves with a set of skeletal teeth and don't forget to add some detailing at the top of the skulls head bone. **Nex   

Step 5.

Awesome, you've now finished the skull! Now for the bones. There is two bones, but you will only be drawing one of them in this step. The bone should be drawing in on a diagonal position. This is because the bones are going to be crossing over one an   

Step 6.

The last step to an sweet skull with crossbones! As said in the previous step, they are crossing on one another so be sure to draw this last bone in to form an "X". Fix up your drawing by erasing the guide lines from step 1 and any other unwanted mis   

Step 7.

Congratulations! You have just finished a skull with/without crossbones! Good job. This is what the complete drawing should look like. And if not, always remember, practice makes perfect. Redo any unwanted mistakes and never give up. Happy drawing.

Description: Welcome back to another super easy, but dope skull tutorial. Though this tutorial has crossbones as well, it is totally optional if you'd like to add that to the skull! It's pretty awesome. If you want a skull drawing to show off, I'd go ahead and take the extra step to add some sweet crossbones. Let's get this done!
