Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Jack Skellington
Begin by drawing a circle. Draw a curved line from top to bottom within the circle. This line will serve as a guide as you draw Jack’s face.
Draw a wavy line across the middle of the circle. This will be Jack’s mouth. Then, draw seventeen short, straight vertical lines intersecting the wavy line.
Erase the portion of each eye oval that is above the intersecting curved line. Then, shade the eyes. Draw a small triangle at each of the top corners of the triangle below the neck.
Draw three long, skinny triangles extending from the far sides of each of the intersecting triangles.
