How to Draw a Simple Ghost – Step by Step

Step 1: Outline first!

Our ghost should be cute, so it surely needs a head. Let’s start by drawing the outline of this ghost:

  • There are two parts of the ghost, head and body; you can draw two rectangles, one large and one small, to create a suitable proportion for these two parts (image 1)
  • Now, with the rectangle as the reference, draw the head and body of the ghost based on your preference (image 2)
  • Now, delete the rectangles to reveal your ghost’s shape.

Step 2: A ghost holding a heart!

Now that you know the outline of a ghost, let’s get creative with drawing the image of a ghost holding a cute pink heart!

  1. This ghost resembles a potato with a head a bit smaller than the body. So draw your outline.
  2. Now, add the heart-shaped eyes and cute smiling mouth for your ghost.
  3. Then, draw its hands holding the huge heart and decorate its coat with some details.
  4. Finally, color your ghost.

Step 3: A Halloween ghost!!!

Well, well, how about a ghost that is both scary and adorable? It will surely fit the Halloween festive atmosphere! This drawing can even be a sketch for your Halloween costume this year.

  1. Start outlining your ghost again, head and body.
  2. Now, you want the eyes to look mischievous, so draw two right rectangles facing each other. Add detail to the ghost’s coat, too.
  3. Then, draw the trident and color it; your ghost should be a little scary, right? Do not forget the two pointy horns.
  4. Complete the image by coloring the dark eyes with red eyeballs and a red tongue, too!

Step 4: A ghost swaying to music!

Another creative take for drawing a ghost is showing it enjoying some music:

  1. Just like the examples above, give your ghost a head and a body.
  2. The eyes and mouth of this ghost should match its sweet personality and love of music (image 2).
  3. Next, sketch the finishing touches like the headphones, music player, carrying hand, and coat waves.
  4. Now it’s time to pick a bright color and fill in the picture.

Step 5: A wicked ghost!

  4. Now, choose the dark colors, like brown or gray for the drawing.
