How to Draw a Halloween Skull

Step 1.

Start with a circle shape for the main part of the skulls head. You will then draw two smaller ball like shapes in the middle of the skulls head for the spider. Next add the facial and jaw guidelines as shown to you here.

Step 2.

You will use the facial guidelines to draw out the skulls eye sockets and then color them in leaving behind one white circle for the eyeball that will be drawn in later. Next sketch out the shape of the brow on the left side and then draw out the mouth lining. Add some cracks around the eyes and brow.

Step 3.

Here you will add the leg guidelines for the spider and then draw in some defining lines for the temple of the skull and the cheek bone. Next draw out the shape of the nose cavity and then draw out all the skeletal teeth as you see here. Draw an eye and a pupil and then add more cracks around the eyes, nose and mouth.

Step 4.

Here is your last drawing step and all you have to do is finish sketching out the shape of the skulls head and then finish drawing out the hearty spider. Add some hair on the spiders body and then draw out the spider webs like you see here. Draw the shape of the jaw and chin and start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 5.

Here is what your skull should look like when you are done if you didn't alter it in any way. Color it in and you have just completed this lesson on "how to draw a Halloween skull step by step". Great job guys!

When I submitted that tutorial on the sad girl, a member left a comment stating that I should do a tutorial on a skull, mixed with spiders and webs. I took that into consideration because Halloween is just around the corner. I didn’t want to over do it with the webs and spiders so what I did was sketch out a skull with a few webs attached to it and a colorful spider on the skull's head. The reason why I chose to color the spider the way I did was because I wanted to convey that this arachnid was in fact poisonous. I did have fun with this lesson because all I kept thinking about was Halloween, my favorite celebrated day. Last year I was a creepy vampire thingy and it was pretty cool. But, when I was trick or treating an old lady said to me “aren’t you too old to be getting candy?”. After she said that, I was like so embarrassed because I felt like an old fool. But that didn’t stop me from trick or treating a half hour later. The skull came out wicked neat and cool. The lesson is relatively easy which is what I was exactly going for. I love drawing skulls and I want to thank “DragoDino” for the awesome idea. Here it is ladies and gentlemen, “how to draw a Halloween skull” step by step. Have fun with it and if you like you can even add more spiders, more spider webs, and or more skulls laying up against the main one you see here. I have to jet out of here for now, but I will return soon. Peace out gang and happy drawing!
