Classic Halloween drawings: Pumpkin and Pumpkin faces

No Halloween celebrations would be complete without the classic decorated pumpkin. Here are two tutorials to get you started:

How to draw a pumpkin: simple and angled view

How to draw a pumpkin: simple and angle view - step by step drawing tutorial
In the first tutorial, you will learn two different ways how to draw a pumpkin. While the angled view looks better, it is the simple front view that we are using for the decorated pumpkin.

Drawing pumpkin faces for Halloween

Drawing pumpkin faces for Halloween - step by step drawing tutorial
Once you know how to draw a pumpkin, the next step is to decorate it with a face. In this tutorial, we show you how to draw not one, but three different pumpkin faces!

The first one has the simple classic triangular openings for eyes, nose and mouth. The other two would be hard to carve into a real pumpkin but are fun to draw - one angry and one happy face.

Spooky character Halloween drawings

The next lot of Halloween drawing tutorials are all about the spooky characters that roam the streets and skies on a dark Halloween night. Let's see who you can draw: 

How to draw a witch

If there is one character that is certain to show up on Halloween night, it is a witch in a pointy hat. 

Our witch starts as a simple chibi-style girl. By adding the details – a pointy hat, broom, long cape and hooked nose – we turn the little girl into a cute witch flying her broom on a full moon on Halloween night.

How to draw a ghost

The next classic Halloween character is a ghost - there would be no Halloween without some white sheets with no feet flying through the streets. 

The ghost is also very easy to draw. Here we draw one using just a few simple ovals and some squiggly lines. By adding some exaggerated cartoon-style eyes we end up with a very cute cartoon style ghost floating in the air.

How to draw a vampire

Next in the line-up of spooky character drawings fit for Halloween night is our vampire tutorial. 

We will draw a skinny vampire with a long face and pointy chin and nose, creeping up on his next victim. The vampire's body is drawn from simple triangles. Also, the vampire wears a full-length long coat. That way, he looks well dressed without the need to draw all the clothing details!

Animal Halloween drawings

Apart from pumpkins and spooky characters, there are also some animals that typically show up on Halloween drawings. Here are the few we have a tutorial for:

How to draw a VERY SIMPLE Spider

How to draw a CAT

Another animal that would typically accompany any self respecting Halloween witch is a black cat. 

We happen to have a tutorial with a simple way to draw a black cat from a few rectangles. You might want to give it a scarier face expression, though - our cat is looking way too cute for a fierce Halloween animal.
