- Sketching Pencils

Ghost Step-by-Step Instructions Start Here
The drawing steps will show you how to draw a cartoon ghost from start to finish.
- Draw an upside-down U with curving lines at the bottom.
- Add 7 or so scallops of various lengths all around the bottom and back up to connect the sides of the ghost.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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?
