Step by step instruction that translates to pencil and paper.

We are well aware of challenge and limitations of teaching to draw through a smartphone. We chose an approach of teaching concepts that can be recreated outside of the app. In this case, the skull has pretty consistent proportions. If you can draw a circle, you can use a formula to draw a proportional human skull. If you practice this enough times, you will become better at drawing (a skull).
