How to Draw a Ghost

A drawing of a ghost, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

Many students have likely been drawing a ghost the same way for years. It either was inspired by the Pac Man style, with a simple curved head and zig zag bottom, or they just got in the habit of one style and never really changed. This tutorial shows how adding a few more details can make a ghost look much more dynamic. It has a definite face, looks dimensional, and even appears to be moving. That’s quite a change over the standard variety! All students have to do is add brows and curves to make the face look much more expressive. The draped arms on the side and dimension in the hem really starts to look much more 3D, instead of like a cut out flat shape. See how easy that was?
