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
