Description: Well it is now the month of September which means there is less than one month to go for the all time favorite celebrated day, Halloween. I have a bunch of tutorials under the Halloween category and those lessons are all very cool. As I was looking through different drawings that I submitted, I noticed that there was one very important Halloween landscape missing. Now because of that, I will be showing you “how to draw a graveyard step by step”. Graveyards are the essential setting for anything Halloween. I didn’t want to draw a complex landscape of a graveyard so I kept it pretty simple while being very cool at the same time. There is broken headstones, human bones sticking out of the ground, and even a small Chapel Mausoleum. I love the way the graveyard came out and I really do look forward to printing out the color sheet so that my six year olds sister can color this fun Halloween landscape in and then hang it in the window. DragoArt has a lot of drawing lessons for all the celebrated holidays. Lately I have been improving on my drawing skills and taking it to the next level.

Some people even choose to join those online art classes that are offered through varies art institutes.

With that said I must also say that I look forward to October 31st because that is the day that my brothers and sister go out trick or treating, and I will stay home and watch some real creepy movies and pass out some Halloween candy to all the boys and girls that ring my bell and yell “Trick or Treat”. I have to leave for now but I will be back soon. In the mean time have a blast with this lesson and I will meet you guys here later with more drawing fun. Peace out peeps!
