There has to be at least one lesson on Dragoart for Halloween that is classic to any person out there that likes to visit graveyards during the night of October 31. That is why I created a tutorial on "how to draw a cemetery", step by step. One of my favorite movies to watch during the third week of October is 'Pet Cemetery' by Steven King. I didn't read the novel yet, but I intend to because Salem's Lot was pretty freaky and creepy so I'm assuming that Pet Cemetery would be too. A cemetery is full of old stones, iron rod fences, and a lot of stone crosses. Drawing a cemetery for me was a bit creepy because just driving by one at night is scary. Imagine getting stuck on the side of the road somewhere in the country right next to an old cemetery? OMG that would make me quiver inside. Anyways, have fun and be sure to let me know if there is any other Halloween related lessons that you would like to see on Dragoart.com.
