Grim reaper drawings (Part 2)

Ok let's move on now by drawing the head of the reaper. In this representation you basically need to draw an evil skull and wrap an hood around it.

Use the construction lines as a guide for the positioning of the hood but do not get bogged by the construction lines. Keep the drawing fluid and experiment.

Now it's time to add a cape! there is no easy route to draw a realistic cape with folds and bends without hard work, however, this is not going to be the ultimate cape and it is quite easy to get a decent effect. Folds on the cape basically follow gravity. Experiment a little bit with them and redraw them until you are satisfied with the general appearance of the cape. I think I'll dedicate a tutorial to cloths and dresses one of these days.

Why not start cleaning the drawing at this point? I have removed all the construction lines and sketched in the hands and feet. I have also worked a bit on the head adding a bit of black to make it scarier. Doesn't it look good?

In this final step you just need to thicken the outline and define the hands, feet and scythe, nothing easier! Hands and feet have too look skeletal but do not look on an anatomy book for it. Just draw fingers in segments and it should do.


We also have an hand drawing tutorial on the site if you are interested that will certainly give you insight on how to draw the skeleton of an hand. Check it out if you can.


Wow great drawing! At this point you can continue by yourself I think. Try to figure how to draw the Reaper and have fun while you enjoy your stay at the Drawing Factory.
