Halloween has past, and with it leaves the popularity of the Tim Burton movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. To tell you the truth, I don't even watch that movie during Halloween, instead I watch this movie when Christmas draws near. Now, as you know I have Jack Skellington, Sally, and Oogie Boogie. But the one character that I do not have yet, and should, is Zero Jack's pet dog. So that is what this lesson will be on today, “how to draw Zero step by step”. Zero is one of my favorite characters from the movie besides Jack and Sally. He is a cute little ghostly pooch that has a lot of love to give even though he has pasted on long ago. His ghostly dog body looks more like a sheet than anything else, and Zero also follows Jack where ever he may go. I really don't know what kind of dog Zero was when he was in his alive state, but I'm sure he was a faithful and loyal friend. Zero also has one characteristic that is the same as Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, they both have big, round, red glowing noses. Now just like Santa used Rudolph to guide his sleigh, Jack uses Zero for the same thing. All in all Zero is a really easy character to draw from the movie and I think you will find that learning “how to draw Zero”, is a fun activity to do with your friends or family members during the Christmas months, or on any occasion. I will be back later with more drawing fun, but in the mean time have fun with this tutorial until my return.

How to Draw Zero

how to draw zero from the nightmare before christmas step 1

STEP 1.

To draw Zero all you have to do is start with a circle for his head and then draw the shape of his sheet like ghostly body. Once that done and drawn out, you can draw a long slightly curled line for Zero's nose.

STEP 2.

Step two teaches you how to draw Zero's face and or head shape. Start by drawing the long arched shape of his snout as you see here and just like Rudolph, draw a round nose tip. You will then draw the lower part of Zero's jaw which also happens to be his mouth, and then add a line to show a great big smile.

STEP 3.

Every pooch has a set of ears right? Well just because Zero is not among the living, he still has a nice set of long loose looking doggie ears. You will draw his ears in and then draw out the shape and or lining for his body as you see here. When that is done you can draw a small circle for the eye and then color it in as well.

For your last drawing step you will continue to draw out his body and then draw the left part of the sheet like foot or paw. Next draw in some wrinkles and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
