How to paint a very fast and easy Skull design


Another famous design for boys if you are in need of a quick design!


* make sure your person is free of sweat and oils on face/arm

* have the necessary tools at your ready

*Have fun!

Tools and Paints used:

#4 Filbert Brush

or a regular round brush will work

DFX White

DFX Black

Application Steps:

1: Make a simple oval/circle


2: Make a square in the middle bottom of the circle from Step 1


3: Make tear drop shapes on each end making a cross shape around the skull like shown


4: Now make the ends of the bones with a petal effect


5: Now add the eyes to the skull with a petal effect again with the thickest part being on the outer part of the skull. Thank add to little lines on the bottom to create the nose.


6: Now if you have quite a long line I would suggest to add the lines to the mouth and leave it alone, if you have enough time this is where you would start outlining as shown. You can also use a smaller round brush for this to be more precise as well, as the filbert brush I was using was quite on the thick side.


7: Add more detail if you have time!


And you finished!! if you have mastered this on the first try I pat you on the back! If not please dont get discouraged as practice makes perfect! I believe in you, feel free to show me your artwork as well! I would love to see it!

Thank you for reading!
