What I have here is a lesson on a female character from one of the first television series The Addams Family. This lesson is going to show you "how to draw Morticia Addams", step by step. The image of Morticia that you see here is of the very first actress that played the character back in the 1960s. The actress' name was Carolyn Jones, and even though I never personally watched The Addams Family in the 60s, she is a good one because of her look. The Addams Family consists of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Grandmama, Wednesday, Pugsley, Pubert Addams and Thing. I might just go ahead and do tuts on the whole family because I know that they where some of the greatest televison characters made. Did you know that The Addams Family started out as a comic strip back in the 30s? It's true, the strip was first published in The New Yorker in 1938 and was created by a cartoonist named Charles Addams. Drawing Morticia Addams should be pretty fun so go ahead and give it a go.
