Step by Step Jack O’Lantern Drawing Instructions
Start drawing the outer edges of the pumpkin – a letter C and only the curvy part of the letter D.
Next make 3 arches connecting the top end points of the curved shapes (it’s OK if you make only two or if you make more). Also make 3 inverted arches connecting the bottom endpoints of the curved shapes.
Draw the mouth for your Jack o’lantern. Cute, scary, simple or complex. However you want them.
Next come the eyes and nose. Triangles are the simplest but as with mouth – you can make any shape you see fit.
Color in the mouth, nose and eyes with black color.
Next come the lines on the pumpkin.
A few more arches in the back.
And the last detail.
All done, you have learned how to draw a Jack O’Lantern!
Color your jack o-lantern.
