How to Draw an Easy Ghost

Step 1.

Begin with a circle for the head, and then draw wing like shape for the wispy arms. Draw in the guidelines for the face, and body like so.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the shape of the head, and then start drawing out the ghosts arms. You can either make the torn looking pieces hanging from the ends of the arms, or you can chose to draw plain old ghostly looking arms.

Step 3.

You will now draw in the eyes, nose, and mouth like so, and then draw out the rest of the body. This can eiother be skinny like you see it here, or you can draw it fatter, and much more plump looking. I added some ribs but that is something that is totally optional. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 4.

This is how the ghost comes out looking when you are all done. Color it in, and you now have yourself one good looking ghost drawing for Halloween.

Halloween is coming up soon, and then after that comes Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Now because Halloween is going to be here in less then a month, I thought it would be cool to fill a request on "how to draw an easy ghost", step by step. I love drawing ghosts, and these beings are probably one of the first things that kids grow up drawing when Halloween comes around. Kids start drawing pumpkins, monsters, ghosts, bats, and witches to decorate their windows, doors, and walls. This easy lesson will show you the easiest way to draw a ghost using simple steps. The design I chose to for this ghost drawing is pretty cool. Instead of making a typical looking ghost I wanted to add some cool markings, and even a little fright to the wispy body. Anyway, I think you will like this tutorial. There is a lot you can do with this ghost if you’re looking to add some of your own unique looking touch ups. Everyone loves drawing ghosts, which is why they are always fun to tackle.
