How to Draw a Flaming Skull

Step 1.

Okay I know that this first step may seem a little complex or confusing, but if you follow what I say then you will have no problems defeating this task. What you will do first is draw out a circle for the shape of the skull and then you will add the lining of the teeth and mouth as seen. Next begin sketching out the lining of the eye sockets and then the lines for the shaping of the flames. These lines look like pointed wavy shapes.

Step 2.

In this next step you will start drawing out the actual shape and design of the skull head. Start by making a line for the forehead which will form into his brow. Next continue the lining to form the shape of his hollow nose and then the top part of the mouth or jaw. You will then draw out the shapes of the teeth and the bone structure that the teeth sit in. Next draw out the shape of the jaw and continue to draw out more of the blazing flames as seen here.

Step 3.

Well guess what you have done? That's right, you made it to your last drawing step. What you will do now is add the remaining detailing and definition lines to complete your sketch of the skull. Draw a long crocked line that goes from under the eye and stretches along the cheek and back of the head. Add the vertical stitch lines and then start adding the definition to the skeletal teeth. Add more lining to complete the flames and then start erasing all the guidelines and shape s that you drew in step one.

Step 4.

Once you are done your flaming skull should come out looking like the one you see here. I hope you liked this tutorial on how to draw a flaming skull step by step.

Well this is my third drawing tutorial and I thought that I should do something a little exciting and cool. As you know yesterday was my day off, and you know it is my day off because no new tutorials went up. As I was saying, my family and I went gallivanting around the town and we happened to stopped at a light near a night club. In a whole parking spot there was like six Harley motorcycles that were all unique looking displaying their own designs. One particular design stood out from the rest and it was of a skull with soaring flames coming from the back of its head. When I seen that I said to myself “that would make a cool looking tutorial”. So that is what I am going to submit for my third drawing lesson. I will show you how to draw a flaming skull step by step. I know I already submitted flaming dice, well this is a cool way to draw a skull from the side with a trail of flames lagging behind. I placed this tutorial under tattoos because I thought that it would also make an awesome looking tattoo design. Or maybe you can print out the finished work and have a stencil made form it for your motorcycle (if you have one), skateboard, locker, or even your binder. I hope you have fun with this lesson on how to draw a flaming skull step by step. Like always my instructions are easy to read and follow and the steps are simple to understand. I will be back with my final drawing lesson in a bit so stick around and learn to draw something new until my return.
