I had to do it. I had to go ahead and create my own version of a cartoon skull. I guess I was inspired to do so after I found that video lesson on Youtube, and now I can show you all my version on "how to draw a cartoon skull", step by step. Skulls is by far one of my favorite concepts to draw. I love creating new looks, and designs using skulls, and I also like the challenge of how difficult it can be drawing a tattooish type of skull that has a little bit of everything. Now since this is a cartoon version, I wanted to keep it pretty simple, and yet also try and keep it looking cool. I have drawn so many skulls over time, which means I’m pretty tapped out as far as talking about something new. I can tell you that I chose not to include or draw a lower jaw for this skull design, and I think it’s because drawing the lower jaw makes it a bit more complex. I also wanted you guys to try and add your own personal touch, and you can do this by sketching in your own lower portion of the skull’s jaw. Anyway, today is Saturday which means I have a lot of work ahead of me. I will meet you guys back here shortly with more drawing fun so stay tuned in people and be sure to keep those pencils active. Adios amigos!

STEP 2.

Now draw the shapes of the bony cheeks, and then color in the eye sockets like you see here. Notice how I left some of the eyes uncolored near the cheeks. This is to add definition and texture.

You're almost done guys. Now what you need to do is draw or thicken the lining for the top of the skulls head. Make some small swirls near the temples, and then draw some brow detailing lines. Color in the nose holes and notice how they are not the same size or shape.
