STEP 1. Okay lets start off this first step with a circle shape which is going to be the base of the skull. You will also need to draw in facial guidelines as well so you can draw in the eyes and jaw evenly.   STEP 2. Now what you do is draw the eye sockets and make sure that they are evenly apart from each other, after all you don't want to be cross eyed. After your done with that draw the skeletal shape nose, and add some crease lines just under the eyes for added detailing and creepiness.   STEP 3. Now what your going to do here, is sketch the cheek bones on the skull, as well as the upper jaw outline and shape. You will also need to draw in the grooves for each tooth which will be filled in later.   STEP 4. Now is the time that you will thicken the lining for the head as well as draw it out with more definition. Next, fill in those grooves with a set of skeletal teeth and don't forget to add some detailing to the top of the skulls head bone.   STEP 5. Now that the skull is all drawn in, you will now begin drawing in the bones. There is a total of two bones but you will only be drawing one of them out here. The bone should be drawing in on a diagonal position. This is because the bones are going to be crossing over one another. Once you are done, move to the last step.   STEP 6. Here it is, the grand finale. All you need to do is obviously draw in the other bone. As I said in the previous step, they are crossing on one another so be sure to draw this last bone in to form an "X". Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.   STEP 7. Look how awesome the finished drawing looks when you are all done. Now you can add some cool detailing like cracks in the bones, or even a bullet hole in the head. Whatever you want to add is all up to you.
