How to Draw a Halloween Pumpkin with Pencil Step by Step.
Mark the size and draw a basic shape of a big round pumpkin.
Outline the step, mark the spots for the eyes, then draw them, the mouth and nose.
Our pumpkin is thick-skinned so the orange of the skin will be visible.
Make the outline by drawing the line in the middle and then add two lines on either side of it at the same distance. Then draw more lines further away.
Finish the shape of the pumpkin and erase all the guidelines.
Hatch the areas along the pumpkin’s curves (lines). The hatching tone becomes lighter the further away from the curved line.
The top and bottom of the pumpkin must be darker in tone, as well as the sides. Make some smooth shading to show the imperfect shape of the pumpkin. If your drawing is small and the pencil is blunt and soft, then you will get the smooth hatching tone without standing out lines just like in the picture. You can control the color by pressing harder on the pencil. Add the shades under the pumpkin’s eyes, nose and mouth. Color the inner parts with light tone. Shade the hatching to make it look smoother.
How to Draw a Scary Halloween Pumpkin
Outline the top and the bottom of the pumpkin. This pumpkin has a basic rectangular shape with round edges.
Start with drawing the upper parts of the eyes, then work on the lower parts.
Connect the elements, and then draw the nose and the scary grin from ear to ear.
This pumpkin has lots of teeth, so you better start from the middle of the mouth and move to the sides.
Finish the teeth, erase the guidelines, draw the inside of the pumpkin that can be seen through the eyes and nostril.
Do the same with the bottom jaw.
Then do the same with the top jaw as well. Then detail the top and bottom part of the scary pumpkin.
Shade the carvings of the pumpkin.
Do the hatching of the pumpkin’s body.
Add some dark shades.
Detail the inside of the mouth and the eyes. Leave some highlights (but not in the mouth). Apply the subtle pressure on the pencil to get the smooth look. Your Halloween pumpkin is ready.
Compare the result.
