Skull & Crossbones, this is something that I have seen more and more over the past year. The reason for this particular symbol becoming so popular was beyond me. I decided to go ahead and see what the whole fuss was about and to see if there was a meaning to the whole skull and bones thing. Other then being used on signs of warning and danger now a days, it was also used on the Jolly Roger, which is a flag design from European and American pirates. Another interesting fact about the skull and crossbones symbol is that for many centuries now, the symbol is used as markers for the entrances of Spanish cemeteries; it gave the feeling and presence of being surrounded by death. Today I see more of this symbol as tattoos than I do on poisonous bottles. I really don’t care what people do with this symbol, as long as it doesn’t effect me in anyway. The tutorial is very easy with nine steps. I had a lot of fun with this one, it’s kinda bloody but it’s all in fun. The best part about this sketch is it only takes like thirty minutes, so learning "how to draw a skull" should be a breeze. I mean the instructions are laid out for you in a step by step form. You don’t have to draw everything I did but I think it looks cool, but whatever it’s your party right. Well gotta go and sketch some more… Tomorrow that is. Peace people. Here's another easy step by step lesson that I think you might enjoy, especially if you love Halloween, how to draw Jack Skellington. Have fun today, and everyday when it comes to drawing all the things you love in the world!
