Step 6: On the top, left side of the body, draw a big, V-shaped line as a guide for the first arm. On the right side of Jack Skellington's torso, draw a big line similar in shape to a greater-than sign (>) as a guide for the other arm. At the end of each line, draw a shorter line to indicate where the hands will be.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing of Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas.
Step 7: Inside the head, draw two small circles for the eyes. Make the eye on the left a bit smaller. Use the lines inside as guide for the size and placement of Jack Skellington's eyes. Don't draw the eyes too far apart. Shade the insides of the eyes.
Step 8: Between Jack Skellington's eyes, near the horizontal construction line, draw two tiny ovals for the nose. Near the bottom edge of the circle, draw a long, curved line for the mouth. Sketch the mouth lightly at first. When you get the curvature right, darken the line. Draw a series of short lines along the mouth for the teeth-like markings.
Step 9: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the rest of the Pumpkin King's head. Darken the initial shape but make the top part a bit more narrow. Curve the left side near the eye a bit to emphasize Jack Skellington's brow.
