Ghoulish Greetings, Fellow Artists.
Happy Halloween—my favorite holiday! Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the creativity, the drama, and yes, even the scariness of this spooky time of year.
In this book, I will show you how to draw flying witches, dancing skeletons, and other creatures of the night. A haunted mansion and a creepy graveyard help set the scene for your monster mash.
Follow the steps in red to create spooky or just plain fun pictures. Try the extra challenge steps in blue to make your drawings even more bewitching. For an especially eerie effect, color in the negative space surrounding an object instead of the object itself. Fill in the object with black for a dramatic silhouette.
Have a frightfully fun time, and keep on drawing!
