Today I have a drawing that was ramdonly done out of the blue. I was going through some request emails and I came across one that asked if I could make a tutorial on a Joker style skull. I disregarded the email and put it on the back-burner because I know something like that would take me at least a couple days. When I started drawing I started sketching out random lines which eventually ended up being a rough sketch of a Jester or Joker with a skull for a face. I think this happened because I was still thinking of the idea for this type of skull art. I wasn't paying attention to my hands or what I was drawing because my mind was still on the tut request. I ended up finishing in a couple hours instead of days. I hope you enjoy drawing a Joker skull folks, be sure to add your own little touches to the design concept.
