How to Draw the Grim Reaper

Step 1.

In this step you wanna just lightly draw the basic preportions and pose. Try to make it look cool and natural at the same time.

Step 2.

Next step is to draw his cloak. Make sure it looks like its hanging off something solid, and remember to think about how gravity affects it.

Step 3.

Now just add the details, like the rips in the cloak, and the creases.

Step 4.

Now we whip out our ink/paint and a brush. First off, we start with the solid lines, and just go over them in pure black. Try not to smudge them, as that will ruin it.

Step 5.

Finally, add some water to your ink/paint and feather the shadows, avoiding the highlights. On the sythe, to try and make it look metallic, you wanna give it some hard hightlights. Thanks for reading, I hope this helped.
