Here is something that can be a nice drawing for Spring. Yesterday I did some pretty awesome drawings with one of them being the one you see here. Today I will do my interpretation of what a tutorial on "how to draw a skull and butterflies" should look like. I love the way the concept came out because even though the skull is damaged, the beauty of who this person was while alive is within the big beautiful pink monarch style butterflies. Of course you know you can always change or tweak whatever you like within the drawing concept to make it your own. I just lay down the ground work or come up with a canvas for you guys to work around or create more on. Drawing a skull and butterflies is something different that I have never drawn before on Dragoart. I hope you folks have fun and be sure to let me know there feedback if you like this skull concept.

Up next, draw the eye socket holes as well as the formation of the nose. Notice there are small rough lining for the nose. This is to make the skull aged. Add the brow definition, then draw some of the upper jaw.
