Before learning how to draw zombies: some fun facts before starting sketching!
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.
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!
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.
Congratulations! Now you know how to draw scary zombies that will make your neighbors scream at night! You can adapt this technique to cartoon zombies (4) or more realistic living dead creatures (1) (3).
You can play with your creation by adding more skin or ripping one of his arm off, the choice is yours! Just don't be to sadistic with your character. We never know when the dead will raise from their graves. More frightening (and cute) zombies can be drawn below. :)
