How to Draw a Psychedelic Skull

Step 1.

Start off with a circle for the top part of the skull and then draw in the guidelines for the face and jaw structure.

Step 2.

Next, begin shaping out the cheek bones with some long, angled lining. The inner corners should be sunken in a bit to give dramatic skeletal look.

Step 3.

We will cover most the top area with a shape of the mushroom cap. This is actually the shape of the skull's head so be sure to draw it the way it is shown to you here.

Step 4.

Add the gills of the mushroom under the curl and then draw the various different shaped spots on the cap.

Step 5.

Now you can begin the shapes of the skull's hollow eyes and then draw in the nasal cavity. Once that is done you can start to draw out the top row of skeletal teeth. Add detailing around the eyes and along the sides of the nose.

Step 6.

For the last step all you have to do is draw the bottom jaw and the bottom row of teeth. These teeth can be crooked and misshapen like you see them drawn here. When you get your teeth and jaw drawn out you can add detailing along the bottom of the teeth and on the skeletal part of the jaw. Erase the mistakes and guides to clean up the work.

Step 7.

When you are done the line art should look like the drawing you see here. Now all you need to do is color the psychedelic skull in.
