Instructions for drawing ghosts step by step

Step 1

Start by drawing a curved shape (like an upside-down U). This will be the top part of the ghost’s head.

Step 1

Step 2

Draw the hands – you can keep them simple by drawing a “U” shape or make them more detailed.

Step 3

Let’s start working on the body. Starting on the left side, draw a curved line from the hand down.

Step 4

Now move to the right and draw another curved line, ending it above the first curved line.

Complete with a zigzag “tail”.

Step 6

Now comes the face. If you want your ghost to look happy, draw “normal” eyes and a “moon” mouth. This way, your ghost won’t look scary at all.

If you want scary eyes, color the eyes black and draw a “moon” shape with the ends facing down. You can even add a diagonal line above the eyes to make the ghost look angry. Scary, isn’t it?
