🖍️ Tools For Success

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Step-by-Step Guide on How To Draw A Zombie 

  1. Draw a facial outline of the zombie’s skull. The skull’s shape is similar to a portable basketball hoop for kids and the classic old-fashioned hand fan. 
  2. For the skull’s details, draw an inverted trapezoid mouth with two small triangular nose holes above and two big rounded eyes parallel to each other with a tiny circular iris inside each.  
  3. Let’s put two big front teeth on the top lip with a gap between them and five short strands of hair on the head with big spaces between each. 
  4. Beneath the skull, draw a ragged rectangular shirt with plenty of curved cuts on the lower part, two long slightly-curved vertical L-shaped sleeves on each side, and a c-curved hand on each end of the sleeve. 
  5. Below the shirt, draw rectangular pants with a long vertical line in the middle and two oval-shaped feet on each end. 
  6. Now, let’s make this zombie a combination of a creepy and funny creature with its green skin, big white eyes, nose, and teeth, gray iris, red mouth, brown pants, and yellow shirt.
