How to Draw a Ghost Step by Step

Today, we’ll show you how to sketch a spooky specter.

You’ll be able to draw friendly (or terrifying) ghosts in no time at all if you just follow our simple, step-by-step instructions.

Making a ghost appear terrifying, friendly, or humorous is all in the details of its face.

The clue is on the outside. So, our ghost will be cute and not frightening.
Step 1
Produce a rounded form as a starting point (like a upside down letter U). For the specter’s head, this is where you’ll start.

Step 2
Draw the hands; they can be as simple as “U” forms, or you can add more detail.

Step 3
To begin, let’s focus on the physical form. On the left, sketch a downward-curving line from the hand.

Step 4
Then, shift your attention to the right and draw a curved line that ascends to meet the initial line.

Step 5
Complete with the wiggly “tail”.

Step 6
Now comes the face. If you want your ghost to look happy, draw “normal” eyes, and a “moon” shaped mouth. This way your ghost won’t look scary at all.

All done, you have learned how to draw a ghost!
