STEP 1. We are going to start off in a very simple manner, and then progress to more challenging steps as we move along. Start by drawing out the very thick and dark lining for the eyelids. Once that is done draw out, and color in the nostril holes like you see here.   STEP 2. Here you will continue to sketch out the eyes until they are completed. When that is done all you need to do is sketch out the eyebrows, and then move to step three.   STEP 3. There is only one thing that needs to be done in step three, and that is getting those full lips sketched out and colored in.   STEP 4. You will begin sketching out the flame like tribal pattern for the girls hairstyle like so, and you have to remember to take your time, and always start at the top and work your way down.   STEP 5. Color in the first installment of tribal drawing pattern and then draw out some more of the connecting pattern like you see here and then color it in as well.   STEP 6. Here you will sketch in more tribal pieces that sit in the pockets and holes of the chunk of flaming hair you just drew. Take your time so that the pieces come out flowing nicely with one another.   STEP 7. Now you are ready to start sketching out another chunk of a tribal pattern and like with the first one, start at the root or the scalp of the girls head. Each piece should continue to flow nicely with one another just as they did in previous steps.   STEP 8. Draw out more of the hair in a tribal design like you see here, and if you notice, I am going for a "blowing in the breeze' effect. Color in the pattern or design and then move to the next step.   STEP 9. Sketch in some tips, and chunks and be sure that each one is pointed and sharp looking for added flare and excitement. Color in the tribal design again and then move to your last drawing step.   STEP 10. Finally, sketch out the last two pieces to the tribal design puzzle. Once you get it done you are all set. As you notice there is no guidelines or shapes to erase because you took this tribal lesson on using a step by step, and piece by piece basis.   STEP 11. Here is the finished artwork once you are all done. Now you can take what you just drew to a tattoo parlor for an inking session, or just add this tribal sketch to your art book. I had fun with this lesson on drawing a tribal design.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9. Step 10. Step 11.
