Good day! Today we tell and show How to draw a skull with a pencil (I understand that it sounds creepy and menacing, but you probably already saw that he was not scary, but very cute. I would even say that he is no longer cute, but positive, unless, of course, this can be said about the skull).

How to draw a skull with a pencil

Traditionally, I will tell you about the history of this phased lesson. For a long time, our main artist and I have not lived together and are even located in different cities. But the work unites us and thank God that there is such a useful thing as the Internet, with which we have the opportunity to work together, but at a distance! So, Daria (this is our main artist) draws all the lessons on his tablet, then sends them to me in the mail, and I, in turn, process them, bring them to condition and upload them to the network (such a good division of labor). AND nearly always the artist and I agree on a specific lesson, for example, How to draw a skull with a pencil. Nearlybut not always! That is exactly what happened with this work. I had no idea what she would send this time. And here comes a message with a signature Yorik. What? Which one else Yorik? I open it, and there it’s a cute shard.

I then asked her about 5 times, who is "Yorik" and why so called the lesson, and not "How to draw a skull with a pencil" ? But she never confessed to me! I think that this "Yorik" from Shakespeare's Hamlet, although not a fact. If you have your own version of where this "Eric" came from, we will be glad to see them in the comments to this lesson :) Well, I think that it’s time to round off with conversations and all sorts of stupid stories from life and start drawing! You have a bright head, a blank piece of paper, a pencil, an eraser and 15 minutes of free time. Click on the picture before you start drawing the skull .

We finish the flowers and leaves, as shown in the figure. Leaves and flowers at the edges should be a mirror image of each other.

Step 3

Circle the pattern with a black pen or marker. In this case, the marker is less preferable because it leaves too thick lines.

Step 4

With a soft pencil we darken the eye sockets. Moreover, we darken their upper part more, since light does not fall there. Next, shade the nostrils (this is the darkest part of the picture). When drawing a skull, the left temple is darker than the right, as the light falls on the right. Shade the flowers and leaves. First, the tone should be one shade. Next, darken the leaves, focusing on the veins. After that, you just have to darken the flower buds in those places where it is necessary.

Step 5

Blend the picture with a piece of paper. If it becomes too pale, then shade the dark places again to get brightness. Now you know how to draw a skull with roses in stages

Draw the base of the skull

First, draw a simple line. The length of the line depends on your preference - the longer, the larger the picture. If necessary, do not be afraid to use the ruler.

We determine the center of the line and put a mark.

Draw a new line perpendicular to the previous one. Let it be a little longer than the first.

We draw a copy of the first line on the opposite side, a cross-shaped figure is formed.

From the resulting cross we will draw an oval. If you have difficulty drawing such shapes, proceed as follows: start with light strokes between the two ends of the perpendicular lines.

Then on these strokes we draw a clear line.

We use this technique and finish the oval.

Find the center of the left quarter ...

... and divide this side into six equal segments.

Using a curve we connect two points through one.

Divide the previous line with another curve, forming a loop.

Draw the jaw

Draw a short line of the oval down.

We put marks on this line.

Draw a horizontal line crossing the bottom point.

Now divide the right quarter of the oval into four segments.

From the first point we draw a line down.

From the loop, draw another line down parallel to the previous one.

Divide the last line into four segments.

We cross the central point with a perpendicular line. Its length should be the same as the length of the segment that this line intersects. Notice that this line is parallel to the longest line crossing the center of the oval.

Circle the resulting symmetrical cross with a circle.To simplify the task, we use the method of drawing circles that we used for the oval.

We close the jaw shape with two additional lines.

We draw a nose and teeth

On the back of the skull, draw a small circle.

We divide the lower part of the circle from the previous section into three segments.

Through four points we draw a curve.

Draw a circle above the loop. In this place we will draw an eyebrow.

From the eyebrow to the jaw draw a line.

Between the loop and the eyebrow we draw a neat curve.

Under the oval, draw a line parallel to the long line crossing the oval.

Under the eyebrow, draw another curve. It will be a nose bridge.

From the nose bridge we draw a line to the center of the circle on the jaw.

The upper right part of the circle on the jaw is divided into three segments.

From the extreme point on the circle, draw a line to the bottom curve.

Draw three curved lines for the teeth.

Detail skull

Now we divide the quarter circle on the jaw into two segments.

Between a point on the circle and the eye socket draw an oval.

The right side of the oval is divided into two parts.

From the point on the oval, draw a line to the upper end of the jaw.

In the same place, from the lower point of the oval to the end of the jaw, draw a straight line.

On the jaw joint we draw a small oval.

Next to the large oval on the cheek we draw a small circle.

From this circle we draw two curves from which we will form the lower part of the jaw.

From a small circle we draw a curve to the eye opening.

Next, draw the outline of the brain.

Under the contour of the brain we draw an oval and connect it with a straight line with a large circle on the jaw.

In the lower part of the jaw draw a large circle so that the skull has a more realistic shape. The circle should be slightly above the horizontal support line.

Finish drawing the nose by adding a few additional lines.

We continue to draw teeth.

Finish the skull

The sketch is ready! To draw the final contours, we use, for example, a black pen or marker, or put transparent enough paper on top of the sketch to make the outline appear, and draw a circle around the skull.

First, we draw the outer contour of the skull.

Point the eye hole.

Then we draw lines on the temples and cheeks.

We draw the teeth by slightly rounding the base of each tooth.

Now, slightly pressing on the handle, add details on the skull. Nothing more complicated, just a couple of “seams” between the bones of the cranium.

Using shading, apply shadows to give the effect of a drawing from an old book.

From this lesson, you learned how to draw a skull in stages. We also offer to familiarize yourself with other lessons, for example, on drawing a winter landscape.
