How to Draw a Bandit Skull

Step 1.

Make a circle for the head, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the head and face guides, you will sketch out the actual shape and structure of the skull's face. The cheek bones should be angled and real bony looking. Draw in the lid line for the bandanna and then sketch in the upper row of grooves for the teeth.

Step 3.

You will complete the teeth and make sure the ends of the teeth are rugged.

Step 4.

Draw in the crooked hat or bandanna, then proceed to step five.

Step 5.

Use the facial guidelines to sketch in the mean expressive eyes. There should be grooves under each eye and there should also be crinkling between the eyes.

Step 6.

Up next, draw in the nasal cavity and color it in. As you can see the nose is shaped like an upside down heart.

Step 7.

Up next, we will erase those mistakes and guidelines then color in the bandanna. Once that is done draw and color in the braids in a nice chunky style.

Step 8.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can add some character to this drawing.

I'm not sure exactly how folks will take to this tutorial because the design concept can go two ways. I chose to create a skull in the form of a bandit, but you could also say that this skull concept looks like a Native American skull. Anyways, here is how to draw a bandit skull, step by step. This is a simple black and white design that will be easy to replicate and even easier to customize to look like whatever you like. There is no bottom jaw to this skeletal face design, but if you wanted to add one you can go ahead and do so. You are basically drawing a skull wearing a bandanna with its braided hair tucked in on the sides of the face. It's a great way to draw a skull easy, but like I said you can tweak it the way you want. I will be right back with one more lesson for the night so stay tuned in.
