How to Draw the Black Parade Skeleton

Step 1.

Start the first step by drawing out the lines and guides to form a frame for you skeleton character. Like a body you will need a head, torso and limb guides. Once that is one you can move to step two.

Step 2.

You will sketch out the shape of the skeleton's face along with the strap that is attached to the hat and chin.

Step 3.

Next, draw in the lid for the hat like so. It should be thicker then normal like a ring.

Step 4.

Continue to draw the hat, then draw in the feather on top of the hat.

Step 5.

We will work on the face next, this should be the small colored in eyes, nose and mouth. When that is done you can draw in the markings on the middle of the hat.

Step 6.

Next, draw the neck, and then the front part of the torso which is the curved chest.

Step 7.

Here you will draw in the tail of the jacket that is part of the uniform.

Step 8.

Next up, sketch in the arm which is also the sleeve, then draw in the skeleton's hand.

Step 9.

Here all you have to do is draw in the right arm, then sketch in the hand. Add the wrinkles on the sleeve for added texture and definition.

Step 10.

All you need to do now is draw in the baton, and when that is done add the lace that falls on the shoulder.

Step 11.

Add the marks on the chest which is also the design for the skeleton.

Step 12.

We can start drawing the legs. This is also the pants. Add the wrinkles and creases that makes up the detailing for the pants.

Step 13.

Add the thick stripe down the side of the leg or pant leg.

Step 14.

Draw in the foot or boot for your skeleton. I guess since the figure is bone, the foot isn't big.

Step 15.

Almost done folks. All you have to do here is draw in the other pant leg and like you did with the other, add the wrinkles.

Step 16.

You will draw the foot and then add the sole on the shoe. Erase the mistakes and call it a night chief.

Step 17.

After all is said and done here is what the line art looks like. Color in the drawing and you are done.
