Steps To Draw a Scary Haunted House
Halloween is celebrated every year on October 31, and it’s often considered the spookiest holiday of the year.
You can get a quick preview of today’s tutorial in the image below and then follow the detailed step-by-step instructions provided. Follow these steps to draw a haunted house for Halloween.
Draw House Base
Let’s begin by sketching the base of the house. Draw a line that curves at several points, similar to the image above. Additionally, create a small “m” shape at one corner to represent shrubs as in the image.
Draw House Walls
Since we’re drawing a cartoon-style scary haunted house, let’s add some spooky features to the walls. Draw six irregular lines that give the wall an eerie appearance starting from the base, as depicted in the image above.
Draw the Roof of the House
To further detail the roofs, begin by drawing a triangular roof on the right side of the wall, as depicted in the image above. For the middle building, create a roof with sloping ends on both sides, and for the left wall, draw a roof with a slope at one end and connect it to the other roof, following the example shown in the image above.
Draw Top Roof
Next, sketch a pointed and triangular roof at the center of the house, following the image above. For the two side buildings, draw lines and connect them to the middle building, as demonstrated in the image above.
Give a Complete Look
After that draw a triangular outline taking the references of the roof that we drew on step 4 for the middle building as in the image above. Then draw a triangular roof on both the left and right side building as in the image above.
Draw Scary Door & Windows
Begin by drawing a rectangular door on the middle house, as shown in the image above. Then, attach a set of stairs to the door, as depicted in the image. Now, create a rectangular window on the right side of the haunted house, and similarly, draw a semicircular window on the left side of the haunted house, following the example provided in the image.
Next, add three semicircular windows to the haunted house, as illustrated in the image above.
Give Scary Look
To enhance the spooky texture of our haunted house, draw a single line running across the entire house as shown in the image above. Additionally, draw a wall with a pillar on the right side of the haunted house.
Draw a Moon & Bat
As we’re drawing this haunted house for Halloween, let’s make it even scarier. Start by drawing a circular moon behind the haunted house, just like in the image above. Then, draw two dark bats in flight adding to the spooky atmosphere as shown in the image.
Draw a Ghost
Now let’s make it scarier by drawing a ghost coming from the haunted house. Now draw a ghost coming from the haunted house as in the image above. Also, don’t forget to draw a scary finger and big eyes, and a big mouth of ghosts as in the image above. Finally, we drew a cartoon haunted house easily in 10 steps.
Coloring a Haunted House
Once you’ve finished drawing the haunted house, you can proceed with coloring it. We’ve chosen some basic colors for this step. Feel free to use these colors or add your own creative touch as desired.
Since a haunted house is inherently spooky, we’ve opted for a black and white color scheme. Feel free to fill in the colors as you see fit, following the image as a reference, or add your personal touch to create the desired eerie atmosphere.
After coloring, we get a realistic haunted house. You can use a pencil color(we made it digital).
