How to Draw a Pumpkin for Halloween


Start off by drawing three simple circles. These circles are imperfect because I wanted to create a dramatic look. Add the guidelines down the centers of the pumpkins for their faces.


Up next, using the guides you will start to draw the actual shape of the largest pumpkin or jack-o-lantern. Be sure to draw the raised brows for exaggeration and effect.


Up next, draw in the pumpkin's eyes. Since this is a Jack-o-lantern, I gave him sinister eyes. You can draw in any eye style you wish. Up next, draw the stem and then draw the large leaf.


Up next, we will draw out the Jack-o-lantern's face which consists of the wide open mouth, and gnarly sharp pointed teeth. Add some detailing and definition around the mouth lining like you see it done for you here.


To make things interesting, I thought adding two smaller pumpkins would be a smart idea. So, having said that go ahead and draw a smaller pumpkin off to the left side, then draw in the saddened eyes and mouth. Add some detailing around the eyes and m   


Lastly, draw in your second smaller pumpkin. As you can see this is a small Jack-o-lantern. This little guy is spunky and full of attitude. Both smaller pumpkins are drawn slanted in opposite directions. Add the face, definition to the face and then    


That's it, you are all done. Now you can color in your master piece and show folks what you drew to celebrate the arrival of Fall, October and soon to come, Halloween.
