How to Draw Cartoon Witches

Cartoon witches drawing

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.
