Several requests came in for this character from a novel called Skulduggery Pleasant. The main figure to the story is the skeleton you see before you now. This childrens fantasy novel was created and written by Irish playwright Derek Landy. This tutorial is going to show you all "how to draw Skulduggery" using an easy step by step process. The story to Skulduggery's past is somewhat complicated. It's one of those things where if you try to explain what a story is about, you would end up getting lost in translation. The only way to know is to pick up the book and start reading. Those of you who already tackled the book, are the ones that are familiar with Skulduggery and his arch nemesis Nefarian Serpine or just Serpine. I can tell you that drawing skulduggery is going to be just as fun as reading about him. I still have some other cool tuts coming your way so do try and stay tuned in. Peace out people and enjoy.
