It is going to be Halloween soon, so we’re going to draw a skeleton. There are quite a few parts in a skeleton, but if you use simple, basic shapes to help with the drawing, it is quite easy.
As we will be erasing the early “helper” shapes later, sketch the shapes lightly and have your eraser at hand.
We will start by drawing the skeleton’s head first. The drawing is quite tall, so leave enough space so that everything will fit.
In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Skeleton
Erase the extra lines inside the skull. Draw a small triangle for the nose, and a half moon shape for the mouth.
Sketching the ribs can be a little complicated, but if you draw a V-shape first connecting the hip and upper arms that will help. Draw six ribs on both sides of the spine. The ribs are curved upwards.
Draw the hip like a peanut and add two rectangles for each leg. The rectangles are not in one line as we want our skeleton to be on the move.
Add circles for the ankle joints and draw triangles for feet. Add five small ovals for toes to each foot.
