How to Draw a Spooky House

Step 1.

Okay start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes of the spooky house frame. First draw a large spear like shape for the left side of the house as you see here. Then on the right draw a coffin shape for the house shape with a little triangle shape right next to it. You will then add the frame guidelines as shown. Next draw a long slightly arched line under the two pieces and then draw out the front lower part guidelines of the house.

Step 2.

In this step you will start adding windows. Your first window will be in the tower portion of the spooky house and your next will be on the other side of the house. As you can see you will also have to draw out the top shape of the right side portion. You will then draw another slightly arched line under the one you drew before to make like a thick board appeal. Draw a wide triangle for the lower part of the house's roof shape and then the line off the bottom and give the house a walk way.

Step 3.

This is the step where your house will start getting those detailing lines added. Start with the tower and draw a line to separate the roof from the window and draw a line on the corner with a colored circle. Next draw another roof line on both the roofs to the right along with an arched shaped window. You will thicken the arch in the middle and then draw the other side of the roof line along with the wood board shingles on the front of the house. The door and columns are next as well as the hill lining.

Step 4.

You will next draw out the lines for the steel picked fence and detail both roofs on the top. You will draw a "+" sign on both windows; one on the arched window and one on the door window. You will then detail the front of the house with more shingles and then draw two sets of hour glass shaped lines for the front windows to come. Detail the walk way with broken stone lines before you go.

Step 5.

In this step all you will do is draw out most of the windows as shown to you here and then add some legs on the spider that is hanging off the corner of the roof. You will also draw the picked fence rails and detail the columns to make them look like old wood and finish off the lines for the two front windows on the lower level.

Step 6.

You will finish off the shingles on the roof and then draw a scared black cat in the top tower window of the spooky house. You will then draw some spider web in the circular window as well as draw a "+" in the two lower level windows. Give the fence some spiked tips and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew oin step one.

Step 7.

When you are done your spooky house should look like the one you see here now. All you have to do is color it in and make it your own. That is it you have just learned how to draw a spooky cartoon house step by step. I will be back tomorrow folks with more drawing fun. Until then keep your feet on the ground, your butt glued to the chair, and a pencil in your hand to get ready to draw.

Okay I’m back with my last tutorial for the day. This tutorial is for you Halloween lovers out there that absolutely have a blast drawing out Halloween stuff. So in dedication to all you ghoulish people, I will now show you how to draw a cartoon spooky house. To me spooky houses are the high light of Halloween. I look forward to seeing who has the creepiest house around the neighborhood. There is this one house right around the corner from me that really does go all out for Halloween. Last year they had a humongous tall person that was all creepy looking walking around the street on a pair of stilts, then they had Jason from Friday the 13th holding a fake butchers knife, and then they had Mike Myers from “Halloween” walking around with a chef knife, and the most scariest of them all was Leather Face from Texas Chainsaw Massacre. He was there walking around with a bloody apron, a big pair of slaughter boots, a leather flesh looking mask and a real chainsaw running up and down the street, That character right there scared the crap out of me and my brother. But before we go trick or treating (yes I said it, I still go trick or treating), a week before Halloween we go to this place called Factory of Terror which is a huge spooky house type of building with every scary, creepy, ugly, bloody character you can imagine. I think they might have a couple of dominatrix characters in there as well. It is so wicked in that place. I am terrified of Freddy Kruger, and when I went there last year he was chasing me calling my name because my mom had to go and say “calm down Dawn”. So of course he heard her say my name and he was taunting me to no end. Well in this tutorial I will show you how to draw a spooky cartoon house step by step. All this talking about Halloween makes me want to pick out my costume. I will be back tomorrow with more drawing fun you guys. Peace out!
