By now you guys should be digging both zombie Mario, and anime Edward which means you should also be real busy. For my next submission, I have another very cool tutorial that all skull enthusiasts will love. This submission is on "how to draw skulls with roses", step by step. I know I have already done so many different types of skulls in the past, and all of them are really great. This one was drawn yesterday when I was feeling a bit blah. Sometimes everyone will go through one of those days when you feel like you’re world is so small compared to others. I sometimes will feel like this when I get creped out about something, and that is usually the case. The skull and roses design that you will be learning from today is absolutely awesome. I love the way I drew the jaw crooked to convey confusion, and the intense expression on the skulls face is wicked too. This is definitely going to be a sketch that I will look back on in the future. The horns represent how much I love dragons and dinosaurs, and the coloring concept is also very mild less strained on the mind. Have fun with drawing skulls and roses, and I will be back with more submissions for you all. Adios people and peace out!
