If someone asked you to doodle “danger”, what would you draw? How about a skull head? To begin with, doodle and upsidedown arc shape for the head of our skull. Next, doodle the upper jaw area using another arc shape with a flat bottom. Please see the example for reference of what this looks like.

Let’s now doodle the teeth of our skull head. To draw these teeth, use zigzag shapes. Kind of like upsidedown triangle shapes sticking down from the upper jaw of our skull doodle.

To draw the eyes of our skull doodle, use two oval shapes. Then for the nose, use a triangle shape. Notice the size of the eyes and the positioning of the nose within our skull head.


Step 4

Let’s now doodle some bones around the skull. Let’s make it look like these bones are at the back of our skull or look like they are coming out of our skull head. To draw these bones use a combination of straight lines and arc shapes. Notice how the ends of the bones kind of look like love hearts. Notice also how the bones on either side of the head mirror each other. We’re not aiming for perfection and perfect alignment here. But, more or less, try and mirror the bones on the left and the right of your skull head.
