Skull tees have consistently been a top-seller because of their intriguing, morbid nature. Many DBH Collective Artists have transformed these terrifying subjects into amazing works of art that are mind-blowing on tees. We have chosen to feature 10 impressive skull designs that show off a wide range of artistic styles to get your creative juices flowing.
Diamond Skull I by martbiemans
This psychedelic skull looks like its purely made of diamonds! The extreme details on this skull create the idea of sheen, sparkle and dripping paint. The divots and curves that were added also make it look realistic. The cool details and shine give this skull a retro urban art feel that really makes this design stand out above the rest.
The Five Dancing Skulls Of Doom by matthewdunnart
This design has a unique humanist feel that shows a duality between human life and death – what does it all mean? The cool sketchiness of this skull design shows off the artist’s skills. This illustrative design has given skulls yet another look that is different from how they’re usually portrayed.
Skull 2 by aligulec
This floral skull illustration shows a ton of nature elements from flowers to butterflies. Bright colors and realistic-looking flora give this skull a unique twist. The added light and shadow has a digital feel that looks almost 3D. The overall elements give this skull a much happier feeling that the scary nature its usually associated with.
Muerte Acehca by wotto
This design is inspired by Dia De Los Muertos with a splash of color added. The subtle grey and black tones make up this cool skull tee and show off this artist’s drawing skills. Simple, yet unique details like the floral arrangement around the skull and the headdress elements make this skull stand out!
Aztec Skull King by qetza
This super detailed skull illustration shows off an intricate depiction of an aztec ruler, Mictlantechuhtli. The overall headdress of this aztec ruler is overrun with skull heads, people’s faces, snakes and other elements that are really worth a closer look. The impressive nature of this illustration makes it great for a tee, phone case or art print that you’ll want to show off.
Sinner by hydro74
This epic skull art gets a nasty, demonic glow from this blue coloring. The ornamental border adds another historical and interesting element that takes the design to the next level. Extreme detailing in the skulls teeth, eye sockets and nose make it believable and menacing.
War Of Hearts by meglobz
This design was created by new artist meglobz with a unique sense of style. War Of Hearts shows off a cool feathered headdress with a morbid looking one-color skull. The added heart elements give this design a story that makes the viewer wonder. The simplistic nature of this skull, with only about 3 colors, creates a bold minimalist design.
Aurora Borealis by chriskar
This super realistic looking tee creates a demonic skull viking that you wouldn’t want to mess with. This stand out skull design looks like it was created digitally with some amazing special effects. The sky in the background sets a cool scene while the glowing eyes and dripping liquid fire create a fiery skull from hell!
The Yellow Skull by zakihamdani
This skull is dripping with honey, and bees are eating away at him! This unique piece of skull art fuses two horror ideas that remind me of the terrifying movie Candyman. Special treatment of highlights and shadows make the dripping honey look realistic and 3D, while thick outlines on the eye sockets and teeth create a character-looking design.
Skull Of Heart by carbine
I think this is one of the creepiest skull designs DBH has! The idea of mixing a red, beating human heart with a skull really freaks me out. The highlighting on the heart’s tubes and veins on the skull sell the idea of a heart, which is recognizable right away. More small detailing in the teeth show off a muscular structure that makes it looks realistic.
It’s always cool to see how so many DBH artists took the same subject matter and transform it into something completely different. There was such a mix of different artistic styles in here from photo realism to minimalism to digital effects and illustration. If you’ve got a favorite animal, character, or object that you love designing, why not try it in a completely different style?
