Hello there gals and ghouls,

Welcome back to my weekly, step-by-step, Halloween drawing activity! Today is our third spooky drawing. If you missed the previous ones, you can see them here: How To Draw… A Bat! and How To Draw… A Ghost!

Today it gets a bit more detailed, but not to worry, I’ll still break the drawing down into simple steps.

You will need a pencil, an eraser, and a thin black pen. The pen is optional. Oh, and a piece of paper! So gather your materials and get yourself comfy. Perhaps make a drink or snack for some mid-drawing nibbles? In previous posts, I’ve also recommended some spooky background music. Today I have to go with Walk Like an Egyptian by The Bangles. While the video wasn’t originally intended to be scary, in hindsight, it is a bit.

So! Let’s get drawing…












Hurray! You drew a mummy cat! Or perhaps you didn’t. Maybe half way through you got distracted and drew something else. That’s great too!

Whatever you drew, I’d love to see it. Share you pictures with me using the hashtag #ImproperHalloween.

Next Saturday will be the last step-by-step spooky drawing because Halloween will finally be here! Here’s a little peek at what we’ll be drawing…

See you then!
