I was just fiddling with some random concept drawing when I was live the other day. I couldn't even tell you what this character is because it is a completely random sketch. Although since it looks a bit spooky, I will place it in the Halloween category. This drawing is basically a ghostly being with a skeletal looking face. The body is wispy like a ghost, and the the arms and hands are of bones as well. Looking at it again, it kinda reminds me of a flying Reaper or something. Hey, maybe I will call this tutorial “how to draw Reaper”. Yup, that's it. Obviously this isn't your common looking Reaper, it is a bit modified to a point where it looks like a made up creation. You can also customize your Reaper by adding a scythe or another weapon of your choice. The idea for this creepy character came to me when I watched a series called “Dead Like Me”. It's a pretty cool series, and I have yet to watch the rest of season one, and then season two. Anyway, have fun learning "how to draw Reaper", step by step. I will be back with more exciting tutorials for you all later. Peace out people, and have a happy drawing Friday.

How to Draw Reaper

how to draw reaper step 1

STEP 1.

Start with a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw an oblong shape for the body and then add the one line for it's right arm.

STEP 2.

You will now begin sketching out the hood from the black cloak that this and all Reaper wear. Once the hood is drawn, you can then begin sketching out the shoulders, and then the structure of the bony face. Draw the jaw and then add the teeth too.

STEP 3.

Sketch in the eyes, nose and add the brow definition as you see here. Color in the empty holes sockets and then sketch out more of the Reaper's torso and then the sleeves. Notice how the sleeves are drawn to look torn or tattered, this is to add age and decay. Next, draw the wrists, and then the bony looking hands with the one to the left more "in your face".

STEP 4.

To finish off your drawing sketch out the rest of the ripped and torn cloak that is plainly visible as being very old. Once that is done you can start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
