STEP 1. You will be drawing two heads so double the work needs to be done. Start with two shapes, the one to the left is a little rounder and smaller then the one to the right. Once base of the heads are drawn in, you can add the facial guidelines like so.   STEP 2. Draw out the large seed like shapes for the eyes, and then draw out the tip of the nose. You will then add a line that forms the left brow above the eye like so, and then move to step three.   STEP 3. Now that some of the face is drawn in, you can begin sketching out the actual face structure. Since shrunken heads are just skin based faces, they are going to have a skeletal look or appearance. Draw in the high cheek bones, and then add the flared nostril. Lastly, draw out the bags under the left corner of the eyes, and then sketch in some wrinkle detailing.   STEP 4. You are almost done with the first face of this shrunken head. You will now draw out the bone that is pierced through the nostril of the nose, and then draw out the frowned mouth and large lips. Add some definition and detailing, then move to step five.   STEP 5. Draw out the large, over sized ears, and then draw in the crease lines on the forehead, and then draw in a line in the center of both eyes to form lids. Sketch in some darkening spots around the eyes, and then add some skin definition on the nose, and cheek. Draw a hole in the ear lobe, and then move to step six.   STEP 6. You are basically done with the first face, now you will start sketching out the head structure of the second head and notice how lining is a lot more uneven, and longer.   STEP 7. Using the facial guidelines, draw in the eyes which are also seed shaped. Instead of making both eyes shut, you are going to draw one eye open, and then draw the other eye shut. Add an eyeball and pupil to the left eye, and then draw out the nose hole which looks like an upside down heart. Add some dark lining around the eyes to add a deep socket look, and move to step eight.   STEP 8. The first thing you need to do here is draw out the stitched in mouth, and then add some sewing lines to the right shut eye. Next, add some shading to the left cheek to form definition and detail, and then sketch out the wrinkle and crease lines on the forehead, under the eyes, and under the nose.   STEP 9. I wanted these shrunken heads to look like they are being hung up so I went ahead and drew their hair in a tear drop shape and pulled them together. Draw the outline of a small skull, and then draw out some hair that is peeking through the top.   STEP 10. For the last drawing step all you are doing is adding color, texture, and detail to the hair. Before you do that you should erase the shapes and guidelines that you made in step one so you have a nice cleaned up drawing. Once that is done start at the base of the head, and then draw your way up to the tip of the pulled together hair. Darken some areas like you see here and then that's it.   STEP 11. When you are done you should end up with an awesome drawing like you see here. Color the heads in to make them your own. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did with drawing shrunken heads.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9. Step 10. Step 11.
