About This Class

Skulls are fun to draw! It’s one of the most versatile subject matters in all of art. That’s because, well, we all have skulls. No matter your gender, race, beliefs, or style, skulls are universal. That is why it is important to stand out. There are likely millions of different skull designs on the internet right now. So how will yours stand out?

In this class I will start with the basic proportions, so you know the rules. From there I will show you how to break them! Experiment with style, proportions, etc.

This class is meant to be a creativity booster! Although I’ll be using a few programs, this class does not require software. A sheet of paper and a pencil will work just fine!

Enrol now and let me know what you think. I can’t wait to see your projects!

I really liked the sketch to ink section. I really liked the final result.

Really interesting class. I particularly enjoyed the video where Jon demonstrated how many goes it took to get a particularly drawing right. Was very reassuring! Am excited to go away and practice my skulls.
Always loved drawing skulls, but I've either always drawn the same boring style of skull. The lessons for thinking outside of the box were especially helpful if you're already a frequent skull-sketcher!
