How to Draw a Vampire

How to draw a vampire cartoon

Learning how to draw a vampire – a traditional looking one anyways… is something we tackled earlier on in the ‘Old School’ lesson from before. Here, I’d like to take a different approach to drawing this famous monster – and make it all the more unique!

It’s my hope that in working through this lesson, you can ‘imagine up’ a unique vampire look of your own.

Alright then, let’s get on with it!

First Step – A Very Simple Framework for a Complex Drawing

If it helps – use the following framework to help you establish proportion and structure in your drawing before you place the actual lines.

Here it is…

Really – you can’t get much simpler than this. Sure – it’s a stick person, but for allowing you to focus more so on the creative aspect of the drawing, it’s a wonderful little ‘tool’ to help you out.

OK – let’s get super creative now – and DRAW!

Second Step – Draw a Unique Vampire

Pulling out all the stops – this is an opportunityto well – ‘let go’ – and really tap into that creative side of yourself. We all know what vampires are usually supposed to look like. So, see if you can put a spin on this, and design something completely different.

In an ‘imagine on the fly’ sort of approach – here’s the monster that I came up with…

In the end – I’d say the finished result has sort of a ‘Bram Stoker/Anime’ sort of feel to it. How about yours? Does it look anything like this? If so – nice work! If not – equally nice work!! Different is good!

Now wouldn’t this make an awesome Halloween costume!?
