Drawing a Halloween Clown

Artist: Dawn / September 19, 2016

Step 1.

Start off with two guide shapes like so to make up the frame work for your clown. When that is done sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Define the shape of the head and then draw the brows. These brows should be drawn in a manner that makes them look raised or lifted a bit.

Step 3.

For this third step, draw the actual defined shape of the clown's face and structure.

Step 4.

Using the facial guidelines we can draw the shapes of the eyes and the round clown style nose. Add puffy bags under each eye with the left eye being more prominent.

Step 5.

Now we can draw in the scare factor and that is the long, sharp teeth which are showing full throttle. Add the lip arches as well.

Step 6.

For our final step you can draw the chin and then the crazy hairstyle that clowns are known for. There is also a makeup pattern I drew between the brows to intensify the clown style. Erase the mistakes and then the guides.

Step 7.

That's it folks. You are all done drawing a Halloween inspired clown. All you need to do now is color in your clown in any style you like.
