Ghost Step-by-Step Instructions Start Here

The drawing steps will show you how to draw a cartoon ghost from start to finish.

  1. Draw an upside-down U with curving lines at the bottom. First line up around and down to begin ghost drawing.
  2. Add 7 or so scallops of various lengths all around the bottom and back up to connect the sides of the ghost. 2nd step for ghost drawing. The bottom part of the ghost
  3. Draw the eyes and mouth on the ghost. For this example, I used sunflower seed shaped eyes and a banana shaped mouth. You can experiment with different shapes to achieve a scary ghost or a mad ghost. Have fun! 3rd step for ghost drawing teardrop shapes for eyes and a mouth
  4. Fill in the eyes and mouth with black and add a curved line coming up from the end of each scallop on the white ghost’s body. 4th step for drawing the ghost lines from the bottom midway up to show folds
  5. Use tiny hatch lines on the left side of the lines on the left side of the ghost to add texture. And use tiny hatch lines on the right side of the ghost, just like you did on the left. Notice how the hatch lines are longer at the bottom and get shorter as they move up?
  6. Last step of ghost drawing adding shading to folds.
