How to Draw a Great Looking Zombie for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

How to Draw a Zombie Step 01

1. Draw a circle for the base of the head. Don't make it too large on your paper - you have a whole rest of the body to add.

2. Keeping to the overall size of the circle you just drew, draw a U-shape that goes in around the temples of the head and out around the cheeks and jaw. This will create a more realistic outline for the head than a plain circle.

3. At the bottom of the head, draw two lines down and connect them with a U-shape to form the neck and chest opening. This should be fairly small.

4. Connecting out from the neck, draw a line off to the left side, then draw down for the body, then across to form the waist, then back up, and back towards the left, closing it off at the other side of the neck. This should form the torso. These lines should be slightly bent outwards to reflect the curves of a human body, not straight lines like a robot.

5. On both the left and right sides, draw an arm extending out and downward, finished off by a few fingers on each hand and closed off by coming back up the inside of the arm.

6. Draw one trouser leg, flared slightly out, on the left side of your zombie. Add a shoe with a simple semi-circle at the bottom.

7. Make the other leg different, like a zombie might have, by having his pant leg ripped halfway down. Then have his leg extend down into his shoe. The leg is skinnier than the trouser pant on the other leg, showing that the pant has been ripped, so don't worry if your 'rip' doesn't look very clear.

8. Now erase your extra lines around the head, leaving only the curvier lines of the head instead of the original circle you started out with.

9. Add a face, cuts and bruises, and rips and tears! This is the part where you can get really creative with your zombie and draw him just the way you want him. For a face, if you want to get cartoony, make his eyes go different ways and have his teeth coming out unevenly. Lines with other lines going through it at a perpendicular (90 degree) angle gives the impression of scars and circles in clothing seem like holes.
