I love sugar skulls, and I love drawing them too. To me, these skulls are quite artistic. Hence, whenever I draw a sugar skull, I make sure to put in a lot of effort on the design elements. And if you follow my approach, you will know what I am talking about.
To draw a sugar skull, draw the skull first. Then, carefully and neatly add the designs. You can get creative with it as you want. Finally, use some bright colors to complete the artwork.
The skull is the core part of the drawing. So let us draw that first. Start with the outline.
Keep it even while drawing the teeth.
It is like an upside down heart shape that is slightly compressed.
Give the skull a pair of round eye sockets.
Time to get started on the designs.
Draw them around the eyes.
Do some curvy designing on the jaw.
Keep things as creative as you can.
Just add a few more designs.
Use a sharp pencil to give the artwork a fine finish.
Carefully color all the designs, and your sugar skull is ready.
