Here is a lesson that I think a lot of you have been waiting for. It's on another character from the Zelda series. Up next, we will learn "how to draw Skull Kid", step by step. Skull Kids are figures that play a strong role in three of the Zelda games; Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and Majora's Mask. A Skull Kid is the end result of what happens to children when they get lost in the woods. They resemble scarecrows because of their spooky, wooden design. They also have that limp characteristic like scarecrows do and they also move about like a scarecrow would. Skull Kids are often seen playing flutes and dancing about. One thing is certain, you will definitely have fun drawing Skull Kid so get to it folks.
