How to Draw a Ninja Skull

Step 1.

Start with a circle for the shape of the skulls head. You will then add the facial gudielines and two curled like lines for the ties.

Step 2.

Next thing to do in this second step is sketch out the shape of the brow lines which are slanted downward for a mean look. Draw a crinkle or crease in between the brows and then thicken the lining as you see here.

Step 3.

You will draw the front line for the ninja head mask and then add more definition for the brow shape which is another set of slanted lines above the lower brow line. Sketch in some wrinkle lines as well as shading that area in as drawn out for you here.

Step 4.

You will now sketch out the shape of the skulls face which is pretty bony and sucked in. Define the cheek bones and then draw out the shape and style of the ninja face mask. Add some detailing to the mask and face as you see here.

Step 5.

You will now sketch out the shape of the long toes that are blowing off to the left hand side and then add some crease and wrinkle lines in front of the head mask as you see here. You will also make sure that the tips of the ties look beaten or worn. Detail the mouth or face mask as you see here and then move to the next step.

Step 6.

Here is your last drawing step and all you have to do now is draw out the circle shape for the ying yang and color one side of it in. Also, add some holes to the ends of the ninja mask ties and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your skull sketch.

Step 7.

When you are done your drawing should come out looking like the one you see here. All you need to do now is choose some shades and color it in. I hope you had fun with this lesson on "how to draw a ninja skull step by step".

The background is colored with a black canvas, and there is red flames rising behind the ninja skull as you can see.
