How to Draw a Cartoon Skull

***tier-3-top.shtml*** Cartoon Skull

Drawing a cartoon skull - positioned at a 3/4 angle like the one above - is simple enough if you take the time to plan before you draw. A sphere/circle with a curved cross marked off before-hand will help you understand how the head is tilting.

Remember - this is a lesson where you can get SUPER creative! Substitute fangs for teeth. Add horns. Change the eyes to look more 'evil'. Yes - do whatever you can to make this skull all the more unique and spooky! :-)

First Step - A Simple Framework

First up, draw a circle with a curved cross - just like the one you see below. This represents the core portion of the head. Then, go ahead and add a simple square/rectangle for the jaw, as it drops down below.

Like so...

It really is that simple! Now - if you're thinking of adding some other features... horns maybe?... you might want to do so at this stage. Lightly sketched before-hand, it'll allow you to focus more so on the creative part in the next step.

And speaking of such...



Second Step - Draw Your Skull, Step by Step

Alright - time to draw this cartoon skull now. Instead of beginning with the eyes - because it's a skull... go ahead and place the eye sockets. Notice how one is only 'half a socket' as the head is slightly turned.

Step by step - here's how the lesson plays out...
