How to Draw a Skeleton Face

Step 1.

The first thing you want to do is draw out the shape for the head. Next, sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the shape you just made, start sketching out the actual structure for the skeleton's face and or head shape. The cheeks should be prominent. The jaw line and chin should be chiseled looks as well.

Step 3.

Using the facial guidelines you will draw out the eyes, then sketch in the shape for the top part of the mouth which is also home to the top row of teeth.

Step 4.

To finish off the skeleton all you have to do is sketch out the bottom row of teeth followed by the brow marks and indents on the sides of the skull. Add detailing around the mouth, then draw out the nose hole. Erase the mistakes when you're done.

Step 5.

Here is how the skull looks when you are complete. All you have to do now is color it in if you like, or add this sketch to one of your book covers.

I have made many skull lessons in my time but what I haven't drawn is a tutorial on "how to draw a skeleton face,/em>", step by step. Drawing the skeletons face is probably a whole lot easier than drawing the actual body of the skeleton. I think it's due to all the different shaped bones that makes up the body. Anyways, this is a full head on lesson that strictly focus' on the face of the skeleton or head. It should be pretty simple to replicate, but if you feel that you may come across a few bumps in the road, just take your time. Anyways, that's it for this description. I'm sure you will find some use for this skeleton face with one of your concept drawings. I will be back momentarily so stick around to see what pops up next.
