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.
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.
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!
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.
