My Skull Drawing

My Skull Drawing

Well it's a skull. I did something to make it a bit scary.

To make something scary you have to make the drawing very dark and murky. Leaving the purple strip on the right hand side of the image destroys any illusion of being scary.

If you have a look at Google images you will notice the eye sockets have been drawn with dark values - this creates a mystery as you can't quite see what it is. This makes it far more interesting AND scary. The background should also be very dark.

Another point with frightening things in drawings, the teeth should not be all even as if they have just come from the dentist, teeth in old skulls are very uneven, broken with gaps to show missing teeth. Try making a few modification to see if you can come up with better results.

But keep drawing, it is practice which makes you a master of your art form
