Step by Step Ghost Drawing Instructions
Start by drawing a curved shape (like a upside down letter U). This will be the top part of the ghost’s head.
Draw hands – you can keep them simple, with drawing “U” shapes, or make them more detailed.
Let’s start working on the body. Start on the left side, drawing a curved line from the hand downwards.
Now move to the right side and draw another curved line, ending it above the first one.
Complete with the wiggly “tail”.
Now comes the face. If you want your ghost to look happy, draw “normal” eyes, and a “moon” shaped mouth. This way your ghost won’t look scary at all.
If you want a scary one, color the eyes all black and draw the “moon” shape with it’s end points turned downwards. You can even add a diagonal line on top of the eyes to make the ghost look angry. Scary isn’t it.
All done, you have learned how to draw a ghost!
