How to Draw Cartoon Monsters


Learning how to draw cartoon monsters is a really great way to improve your drawing skills.

They come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes, so there's really no end to the different ways that you can draw them.

Growing up, Halloween was always one of my favorite times of year (and still is today!).

Sure the candy's great, but it's the monsters associated with the holiday that I think are what make it especially cool.

Monsters like vampires, werewolves, skeletons, witches, Frankenstein, ghosts, zombies... the list goes on and on.

Because of all these cool creatures, it was always quite inspiring with respect to drawing.

Cartoon Monsters

Much like with drawing dragons, you have a lot of creative drawing freedom when it comes to monsters.

What I mean is that there's no one "right" way to draw them.

Mix, match, or come up with something totally unique altogether!


Below is a growing list of different cartoon monster drawing lessons.

Most will probably be more familiar to you (like the types you see and read about in movies and books), but keep your eyes open as I plan on coming up with some completely new monsters as well.

Some food for thought...

Use the lessons here to inspire you to come up with some weird and wonderful cartoon monsters of your own.

Have fun with your monstrous creations!
