How to Draw a Gentleman Skull

Step 1.

Another face another circle for the head guide. Sketch in the facial guidelines too.

Step 2.

You will now use the facial guides along with the cheek bones that should be rough lined.

Step 3.

Here is where we will tackle the task of sketching out the nasal cavity first, then sketch in the defined parts of the upper jaw. These are grooved lines that are etched into the bone.

Step 4.

Before drawing out the rest of the jaw, you will need to sketch out those bold eyes. The brows should be very strong and prominent and well defined around the base almost on top of the cheek bones. Take your time as you tackle this step because you will need for the eyes to come out perfect for a gentleman.

Step 5.

This is a simple task because all you have to do is draw the curled mustache. When that is done begin drawing some of the teeth under the bottom of the mustache.

Step 6.

Now you can draw in the top row of teeth. Since this is a gentleman his teeth should be rather straight and clean looking.

Step 7.

Here you will need to draw in the angled jaw structure. The chin should be detailed and the bottom row of teeth should line up with the top row in a nice flow. Add detailing to the chin as well to make it look like there is a dimple.

Step 8.

This is another simple lesson because all you have to do is draw the lid ring or rim for the top hat that this skull is wearing.

Step 9.

Draw in the rest of the top hat shape like so, and add some dimpling around the base of the hat.

Step 10.

Define and detail the top hat by adding the crease at the top of the hat, then add the band around the base and the trim around the rim. Erase the mistakes and guidelines too.

Step 11.

Here is the finished drawing of your gentleman skull. Now you can have a blast coloring him in.

Here is a unique concept that was thought up out of the blue. Up next and to end my skull session of art or lessons, I will show you "how to draw a gentleman skull", step by step. I call this by the name given because it's supposed to depict a perfect gentleman. You know those old fashioned guys that used to wear those black colored top hats with perfect curled mustaches and a grin that can lure you in. This skull took about two hours and even though it's not as extreavigant as some of the other art or tuts I uploaded today, it's still a fun concept to try out for yourself. There are ten drawing steps and the eleventh step is the line art. You have to admit, it's always fun drawing skulls no matter what kind they are. Enjoy people and yes there is more tuts coming your way because I have a bunch today.
