Halloween Monster Drawing Lesson

Artist: Dawn / September 7, 2016

Step 1.

Let us begin by drawing the guides and shapes for our Halloween monster. Start with the head guide and then draw the torso and pelvic guides. Once complete you can sketch in the limb guidelines as well.

Step 2.

Here we will use the head guide to sketch out the actual structure for the head. Once that is done begin drawing the face shape. Be sure to draw the cheeks, mouth and jaw in a gnarly manner.

Step 3.

Okay, draw the eyes and nasal cavity. Color in the nasal hole and then draw the swirls on the head for the exposed brain. Add a pumpkin style stem, and then you are ready for step four.

Step 4.

Up next we will start working on the body. Start with the shoulders, then work your way down to the arms and torso. Add the definition and detail to the arms and shoulders like you see here.

Step 5.

Begin sketching out the chest and the rest of the upper body like the torso, waist and rib cage. Add definition to the belly and chest, then proceed to step six when you feel you are done with the body.

Step 6.

Finish the arms and hands. When that is complete add detailing to the left arm and hand.

Step 7.

This is our last drawing step. What needs to be done now is the formation of the legs, and feet. Since this Halloween monster is sitting in a crouched down pose, his feet should be in a toe stance. Add detailing to the rest of the body and legs, then   

Step 8.

That's it, you are all done. Now just add some super cool colors and a festive Halloween background.

Description: Okay folks, I know I said a couple days ago that I had a buttload of tuts to submit, but I was oddly sidetracked. Anyways, today I will be uploading the ones I didn't as well as submitted newer lessons that I made yesterday. I will start by showing you all how to draw a Halloween monster, step by step. This Halloween monster is obviously going to look like the holiday in a traditional way. I drew the monster with a pumpkin head Jack-o-lantern style face, and then a normal, manlike body. A lot of my monster inspiration comes from the overload of memories and imagination combined into one form. I do hope you like this tut on drawing a Halloween monster. I will be back in a bit.
