This is a cool concept which is my version of a tribal skull and crossbones. Today, I will attempt to show you guys "how to draw Tribal crossbones", step by step. This image is sometimes seen on the flags of pirate ships and other logos or sails. This design may be a bit complex to some of you artists out there, especially those of you who are just starting out with drawing. The important thing to remember when tackling any type of tribal art design concepts is a lot of the parts to the drawing are not connected. Instead the separate shapes flow into one another to form a whole image. Practice does make perfect so if you like a challenge you will love drawing tribal crossbones. See you back here in a bit with more drawing fun.

STEP 1.

This is going to be a tricky lesson to teach verbally because of all the different shapes that makes up the skull and crossbones as a whole. I guess we will begin with drawing the left part of the skull's face which is some of the forehead, temple, eye and front of face.
