In this next tutorial I figured I would do another lesson on yet another skull. So far I have showed you how to draw skull and crossbones, a cool skull head wearing a top hat, and some other really cool characters from my imagination. The reason why I put all these types of images under the tattoo category is because there is no particular place for them to go, and because they are mainly seen as tattoos on both men and woman. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw a pirate skull step by step. This is a very popular skull image that can be seen as tattoos. Skulls are also seen scattered as a design on shirts, hats, sweaters and even jackets. If you are a biker, you are also familiar with the image of a skull because a lot of Harley Davidson owners or riders have stencil on their bikes in the form of skulls amongst other things. I really have fun drawing skulls because I can get real creative while I am designing the rough sketch. At first I was going to draw a beard that looked a little like Captain Jack Sparrow from the move “Pirates of the Caribbean” (Now that was a wicked movie, all three of them but of course the first part was the best, but then I came to the conclusion that a simple braided beard would do fine. Well I will now shut up so that you can start tackling this tutorial on how to draw a pirate skull step by step. I will be back with two more drawing lessons for you all so keep your eyes peeled for something great.

How to Draw a Pirate Skull

how to draw a pirate skull step 1

STEP 1.

Like all the lessons here on DragoArt, this tutorial will be very simple to learn how to draw because I broke it down in a simple way for you all. What you will do first is draw out a circle for the head and then add the lining for the lid of the pirate hat as shown. You will then draw the facial guidelines as seen here and then draw out the shape of the jaw.

STEP 2.

In this next step you will draw more of the pirate hat lines to complete the shape of the hat in the back. Once that is done you will start sketching out the shape of the skulls cheek bone structure and then the lining for the teeth on the bottom part of the jaw. The next and last thing to do in this step is draw out the shape of the eye patch.

STEP 3.

This is your third step and that means that you are almost done. You will now draw out the top part of the hats lid and then the lining for the small skull and sword design in the middle of the hat. Once that is done add the eye socket hole and then the triangle shaped nose hole. Once that is finished you will start sketching out the shape of the teeth and then the braided beard.

STEP 4.

Well this is your last drawing step and what you will be doing is adding detail and definition to the pirate skull and the pirate hat. Make an arched line under the lid of the hat and then detail the pirate swords as seen. You will make the the holes for the eyes and mouth. Detail the eye patch and then detail the bone lines around the teeth and then sketch in the cracks on the teeth as well. Once that is done you can define the braided beard by sketching in hair lines. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

STEP 5.

After you color in the hollow holes of the pirate skull your sketch should look like the one you see here. All you have to do now is color in your skull and you are done. You have just learned how to draw a pirate skull step by step.
