Drawing cartoon witches is tons of fun – especially near Halloween – and especially because they can look a number of different ways.
Traditionally though – there are key elements that once included in your drawing – make it all the more ‘witch-like’. Things like – a pointy hat, a cloak, a broom – and maybe even a cauldron. A long nose and chin also help to make your drawing all the more convincing.
OK – let’s create!
First Step – Sketch out the Structure of Your Cartoon Witch
Here, the form of the body – although important when drawing people – can be skipped over somewhat, as really – the cloak will take up much of this area. To account for this, I’ve shown a simple grey curved line – illustrating both her hunch-like stature, and the angle of her stance.
Draw yours similar to this…
Key elements like the nose, hat, broom, etc. – as you can see… I’ve included with different colors. In your case, sketch this entire plan out in very light penciled lines.
So – how’s your framework coming along then? All done? Great! Let’s continue…
Second Step – Draw Your Character
Beginning with those areas best tackled first – sketch your witch step by step, using the examples below to help you progress. Remember – there’s never a time when you needn’t ‘branch off’ and incorporate ideas of your own. Do so – whenever and wherever – you can!
Pretty cool once the coloring’s done isn’t it! I especially like the pink ‘goop!’ that can be seen inside (and dripping out of) her cauldron.I wonder what she could be cooking!? 🙂
Well – there’s another Halloweenish drawing under your belt. Fun stuff – stay tuned for more.
