Another skull lesson for the books and this time it will be easy enough for all folks to enjoy. To start the day off I will be showing you "how to draw a skull head", step by step. I have so many different skull heads that making another one is always a nice extra addition. The only draw back about drawing skulls is I run out of words to say. Unless there is a cool story behind the drawing, I don't know what to tell ya'll. Just have fun with this different skull design and I will be back with some super cool lessons that you will enjoy. Peace out and adios.
