This tribal skull design is a revamped drawing that was originally submitted by Medxx. She did an awesome job recreating a reference picture she found online but I thought I would draw something better that you can all enjoy with a cutting edge. When draw skulls in a tribal art pattern you have to make sure that you create something that is going to be original, and captivating. Unfortunately the image that medxx used as a reference wasn't too captivating, it was sort of plain and tribal lines weren’t drawn in a unique manner. As for this tribal skull I so believe that you will enjoy learning how to make an awesome piece of art that would not only look good on paper, but it would also make a killer tattoo as well. I have submitted plenty of skull designs on Dragoart, but I do have to say that this drawing is one of my favorite. If you love drawing skulls with tribal markings, than you will really have a blast with this lesson. Enjoy everyone and be sure to check out more of the skull art and tutorials posted on the site.

Draw the top half of the jaw and be sure to draw in the grooves for each tooth that you will draw drawing in. Make a triangular shape for the nose hole and color it in as well for that hollow look. Add some detailing lines that will help to define the temple of the skull's head.
