I thought it was time for another tutorial on a band symbol. But this time I am not going to show you how to draw a band symbol from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s. Instead I will be showing you how to draw the Avenge Sevenfold skull step by step. This hard rock American band from Huntington Beach California developed a sound that has become a part of mainstream media. They formed in 1999 and recorded their first album called Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. When the band released this first album they were all still very young, only eighteen and still in high school. One of their well known songs that made them popular was the single “Bat Country”. Some folks think that Avenged Sevenfold is somewhat of a heavy metal band, and I can totally see why they would say that since there is really no hard metal music around for today’s generation. If you compare Avenged Sevenfold to bands like Pantera or Slayer, they would sound like another low key rock band. I like Avenged Sevenfold but not to a point where I would go see them in concert. Their music has to grow on you a bit by listening to the songs a few times in a row. They have a cool symbol and that is one of the reasons why I am doing this tutorial. The other reason why I will show you how to draw the Avenge Sevenfold skull is because it was requested by a few fellow artist from the site. I hope you will have fun with this tutorial I think it came out cool. I will be back with more drawing tutorials that I know you will love. So stay put and starts working on this tutorial.

How to Draw the Avenged Sevenfold Skull

STEP 1.

In this first step you will start by drawing out the shape of the skull and then add the facial guidelines so that the eyes, nose and mouth comes out symmetrical. Next draw out the mouth lining along with the shape of the wings as shown to you here. Make sure that your wings don't overpower the size of the skull.

STEP 3.

In this next step you will start detailing the skulls face by drawing in the definition lines. At this point the detailed lines look like flames that are going in an upward direction. When you are done drawing these lines they will later be colored in in the next step to give the effect of a shadow looking skull. You will also add the detailing lines on the left wing as well as the chin. As you can see you will also color in a small area of the chin as shown to you here.
