Hi, my name is Erik, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a headless skeleton. Okay, let's start by drawing the top of the spine, let's start about the neck level, just below where the head wouldn't be, and the spine down and taper it off, and let's just add some lines for the segments of the spine, and then let's come down here, let's just add some of the shoulders there, the clavicles, and we'll fill in the ribs in just a moment, and I come down here. Now let's draw the pelvis here, some hips, come down more with the spine, fill in this bone here with the femur, and another femur here, draw down here the bones, draw a kneecap, leg bone, okay, fill this out more. Now let's come down this bone here, kneecap do this, now there's two bones here that come around, which I think this one is the straight one, and inside there I'm going to draw some hand, which are segmented more, and this one here, draw an elbow, do the segments here, just do a quick hand, actually you can do them as dotted lines, that looks nice, do the feet, draw in some dotted lines, this fellow has pretty broad shoulders. And now let's add the ribs here, and this one here, this one here, this one, connect those into the spine, like that one, actually there's some holes here in the pelvis. Let me see, am I missing anything? This connects, and just draw a base line. and there, that is how you draw a skeleton without a head.
