The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw a small arc near the top part of the paper for the first part of the Grim Reaper's hood. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Darken the arc only when you get the shape right. Below the arc, draw a big V-shaped line for the lower part of the hood's opening.
Step 2: Draw a long, curved line around the first shape for the exterior edge of the hood. This line should be close to the edge of the first shape. The bottom edge should not connect. Draw a few short, curved lines inside the shape for the folds on the hood's cloth. At the bottom, curve the line outward a bit to indicate where the hood will connect to the Grim Reaper's body.
Step 3: Inside the hood opening, near the top, draw two small triangular shapes for the Grim Reaper's eyes. Curve the inner points of the eyes upward to create a furrowed brow. The outer edges of the eyes should be hidden behind the hood. Shade the insides of the Reaper's eyes and don't overlap the shape of the hood.
Step 4: Below the eyes, in the middle, draw a small shape that's similar to an upside-down triangle for the nose. Shade the Grim Reaper's nose. Above each eye, draw a small, curved line to make the brows thicker.
Step 5: Below the nose, draw a curved, horizontal line for the first part of the upper jaw. Now draw the ends of the line up toward the eyes and then curve them outward toward the hood. Draw a series of short, vertical lines along the bottom edge for the Grim Reaper's teeth.
