Before learning how to draw zombies: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • In early movies, zombies used to walk slowly and be a little dump. These days, they are fast, vicious and sometimes wiser!
  • Many zombie's walk are organized through several cities (in the US and in Canada) on Halloween night.

Step 1

Image of a zombie!

If your afraid of the living dead, then maybe learning how to draw nice zombies might be a good way to get rid of that fear! Our little fellow on the left doesn't need to go on a diet for sure!

Watch for his skinless face (1), tiny ankle (6) and his meatless chest (4). Your zombie should be painted in green and brown for maximum impact.

Step 2

Shape of a zombie!

Decomposing our skinny zombie in multiple shapes shows us a great variety of rectangles and some circles. Notice how the hands seems big and scary while the legs look small and fragile.

Adding a long neck is also a good idea if you wish to make your dead buddy more reluctant. A strong pair of shoulders combine with a small waist is an excellent way to draw a scarier zombie!

Step 3

How to draw zombies!

Let's draw the head of a funny zombie in 6 easy steps. First, draw a circle for the skull and a rectangle for the jaw. Then, draw the neck and the shoulders of our little friend.

At this point, start sketching details like the nose and the eyes. Finally, add color on your character and some shadows around the eyes to accentuate his morbid appearance.

Step 4
