How to Draw a Cartoon Skull
Drawing a cartoon skull - positioned at a 3/4 angle like the one above - is simple enough if you take the time to plan before you draw. A sphere/circle with a curved cross marked off before-hand will help you understand how the head is tilting.
Remember - this is a lesson where you can get SUPER creative! Substitute fangs for teeth. Add horns. Change the eyes to look more 'evil'. Yes - do whatever you can to make this skull all the more unique and spooky! :-)
First Step - A Simple Framework
First up, draw a circle with a curved cross - just like the one you see below. This represents the core portion of the head. Then, go ahead and add a simple square/rectangle for the jaw, as it drops down below.
It really is that simple! Now - if you're thinking of adding some other features... horns maybe?... you might want to do so at this stage. Lightly sketched before-hand, it'll allow you to focus more so on the creative part in the next step.
And speaking of such...
Second Step - Draw Your Skull, Step by Step
Alright - time to draw this cartoon skull now. Instead of beginning with the eyes - because it's a skull... go ahead and place the eye sockets. Notice how one is only 'half a socket' as the head is slightly turned.
Step by step - here's how the lesson plays out...
And there you have it. A simple drawing of a skull - one that will surely come in handy at certain times of the year. Ahem!... HALLOWEEN!! :-)
Hope you enjoyed the lesson!
