How to Draw Jack Skellington

***tier-3-top.shtml*** Jack Skellington

Jack Skellington is the main character in Tim Burton's hit movie - A Nightmare Before Christmas. And I don't know about you - but whenever I think of this character... that same song pops into my head... 'This IS Halloween - This IS Halloween'!? Know the one I'm talking about?

Anyway - this'll be fun as I've made extra sure that this version of the character is all the more 'Halloweenish!'

Let's get drawing!

First Step - A Stick Figure for a Stick Figure!

Truly, Jack is one of the easiest characters to draw. Many times, before creating a particular drawing - I'll recommend you sketch out a stick person framework, to get the structure in place ahead of time.

Here - our main character, pretty much IS a stick person!...

Things to note with this character too... notice how small his feet are - and also - check out how I've mapped out the placement of his 'bat collar' ahead of time. Do the same if you find it to be helpful.

A look at the finished product, and yes - I'm liking it! The only thing I'd suggest you do differently regarding the coloring/details - is the pin stripes on his suit. I've only added lines where space allowed, but in your case - take your time and make his suit a bit darker all around - carefully leaving finely placed white pin stripes.

Well hey - nice job! And oh yeah... today is October 31st.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
