How to Draw a Witch Face

Artist: Dawn / October 29, 2014

Step 1.

Start with a head/face guide shape first, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the shape you made sketch out the structure for your witch's face. Also add a hair strand for the hair that is parted and covered by the witch hat.

Step 3.

We will now begin drawing the eyes or shapes of her eyes. Notice how they are nicely shaped and the lining is bold or dark.

Step 4.

Add the eyeballs, then sketch in some pretty lashes. You will also need to draw in the lid crease too.

Step 5.

Lightly sketch in the nose, then draw the top lip line which perks upward at one corner.

Step 6.

Finish drawing her pretty mouth by completing the lips. When that is done draw the chin arch line.

Step 7.

We will now get started with the witch's hat. Draw the long, wide rim line for the hat like so and be sure to add a ripped notch.

Step 8.

Draw in the cone shape with the tip heeled over a bit, then draw in the band at the base of the hat and add detailing.

Step 9.

Let's get back to work on the face. We will draw in the nicely shaped eyebrows which should be a little thick. Color them in and move to step ten.

Step 10.

Sketch out the shape of her long neck like so, draw in some of her shoulders, then draw the length of her hair. Add the bone detailing to the base of the neck too.

Step 11.

Lastly, add detailing to the hair by adding some strand lines. Erase the guidelines and shapes, then you are all done.

Step 12.

That's all there is to it. You can now have fun coloring in your witch face. You can choose to go with green colored skin, or keep it a flesh tone it's all up to you.

Up next, here is a tutorial on how to draw a witch face, step by step. As you can see this witch's face isn't ugly, it's not full of warts, and it doesn't have any complex aspects to tackle when recreating this witch on your own piece of paper or tablet. I love how her face looks. It's simple, elegant and clean. Drawing a witch face doesn't always have to be based on an ugly face, you can make them beautiful as well. Enjoy people and let me know what you think of this concept.
