Halloween is coming up soon and if you haven't already put up decorations or can't afford any of that stuff, here's a quick skull drawing guide so you can make your own decorations and all of your friends will think you are snazzy because you don't stoop for that "buy Halloween decorations thing". I wouldn't know because I don't' have any friends and if I did, I doubt they would think I'm 'snazzy'. Ahem...where was I? Oh yes, drawing the anterior (that means frontal) skull.
I know everybody else has a video tutorial that is in 15 different languages with funny sound effects and music, but here you go, a step by step drawing shot entirely on my camera phone. WOOT!
here. If you wanna eyeball it, it's fine, whatever, no pressure on this post. Actually, you should be exact if you are doing medical illustration but hey, these are Halloween decorations, right?

As long as we are discussing construction, we should cover the skull in turn around. Doing a turn around of any object or subject is easier if you know the construction or simple shapes of that make up what you are turning around (or turning in space visually). Below are notes from today's lecture with regards to turning teh skull. First step was review of the anterior skull.
here. Now you have examples of a frontal, 3/4 and profile skull all based on simple shape construction. Go make Halloween turnarounds! Thanks for stopping by.
