Fearless Friday, Witchy Pumpkin

Trick or Treat!

Let’s have a little Halloween fun today

and draw and color a witchy pumpkin!

This photo from Lady Bug Wreaths was my inspiration

I started with a pencil sketch

adding my own version of her hat,

with a spider web, buckle and dangling spooky spider

Next I went over the sketch with a waterproof black liner pen,

and erased the pencil

I added more details as I inked

I made a free printable if you want to color along,

you can download it here

Let the coloring begin!

Yellow for the cut edges for her features and hat buckle

I used a medium gray for the highlighted areas on the hat

{on black surface highlights aren’t going to be white,

more like a soft gray}

Then I began filling in the black areas with a dual tip pen

The fine tip is great for outlining and small spaces

and then I used the broad chisel tip for large areas

I use a set of Calliart Markers that I got from Amazon here

Next a deep orange for the more shadowed areas of the pumpkin

on the sides, bottom, in the groves and under the hat

Then I used a lighter orange yellow to fill in the rest

A touch of lime on the hat band,

and squiggly lines for her hair with green, orange and black

Some yellow dots with a Kuretake Zip Color Dot Marker

Then a few black dots to finish!

If you don’t want to color your own,

you can download this colored one here

and use it to decorate a space in your home

Have some witchy Halloween Fun and

Be Fearless!

    Hey, Jenna,
    Love your “witchy pumpkin” and may try to replicate it. You have inspired me to buy some sketch paper and watercolor pencils and a few supplies to try my hand at “copying” you–one of my favorite mentors via your blog. This is not my talent, but we should all try new things here and there. My daughter was an art major in college, but I can assure you this did not come from me. However, I shall endeavor to be “grasshopper” to two of my favorite ladies. Keep inspiring us with your mega talent! Georgia Gal
