Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw dead people. So, we're going to draw a zombie. So, we start with really simple body shapes, just a couple legs, lines. We're going to fill this in. A circle for the torso, make it a cylinder. Circle for the head. And then, a couple lines out for the arms, because he's going to be chasing those brains. So, that's our really simple shape that we can build up on. So, I'm going to give him some really disheveled pants. And, you can go as detailed as you like, or as simple, depending on what you're going for. Fill in his legs. I'm going to make him barefoot. Now, sometimes, zombies have a bit of flesh coming off, so you can make rips in their flesh, or anything. Or, you can see bone if you just want to draw a bone. If we want to draw some ribcage, just a couple simple lines underneath a t-shirt is suffice. So, let's get his arms in. Really simple hand shapes. Put a disheveled t-shirt over the top. Obviously, there's a hole here where we can see his ribcage. Maybe we can see more flesh underneath here. Take away any lines that you don't use, as you're going. Now, when I get to the face, can do a circle for an eye, and then a dot for an eye, so it looks like it's a little bit different. I'm going to just give him a triangle nose, and then an open mouth, and just a couple little strokes for hair - he doesn't have a lot. So, there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw dead people.
