Hey everyone, here's my first ever zombie tutorial. It's pretty basic as far as zombies go but I think it's a nice starting point before getting into the more grotesque and complex stuff. Get you pencils and paper ready for this one!

How to Draw a Zombie Head

how to draw a zombie head step 1

STEP 1.

Start out by picking your pencils. I used an F pencil for sketching/lines, 3H and H pencils for light shading/lines, and a B pencil for dark lines/shading. I also used an HB pencil to shade in the background.

STEP 4.

Now roughly and softly shade over the zombie. You can use an HB pencil and a cloth for this. As long as you can still see your lines afterwards, any technique/pencil will do.

STEP 7.

Start adding detailed shading to the eyes. I used a 3H pencil for the lighter shading. F and B pencils work best for the darker lines.

STEP 8.

Next, work on the top half of the head. 3H and H pencils work well for the skin. Use a B or F pencil for the wounds. All you have to do is darkly outline the wound and then roughly fill it in.

STEP 12.

Next, define the jaw and the shirt. Try to make the shirt look filthy. I use an HB pencil and a blending stump for this.

STEP 13.

Finish up the drawing by shading in the background. You can also go back and add in extra wounds/ scars to the zombie if you want to. I went ahead and changed up the eyes a little bit and added more blood stains to the zombie's skin (for example, under his nose). I hope you found this tutorial useful or at least frightening!
