To start this tutorial on how to draw a scary clown, we will start with his scary face.
His face will have a large and grin, and the upper lip will be quite thick with a row of pointed teeth at the top of the mouth.
You can then draw a rounded shape for his nose before we add his eyes. The eyes will be drawn into two ovals and they will have some arched eyebrows above to give him a more sinister expression.
Finally, finish contouring the top and back of his head before you add a bun that sticks out behind his head.
Step 2 – Now draw the details of his collar and mouth
We will perfect the details of his mouth and face along with painting his ruffled collar in this part of your scary clown drawing.
First, we’ll add a row of sharp shark-like teeth to the bottom of its mouth.
For the collar, we will use two curves to create both layers of the collar, and then there will be some line detailing throughout as well as a hemline along the edge.
Once you have this collar like the one in our reference, you’ll be ready to move on to step 3.
Step 3 – Next, draw his arms and legs
For the third step of the tutorial on how to draw a scary clown, we will start drawing the arms and legs for this clown.
Use some curves to create his long, lanky arms that stick out at the sides, then add rows of stripes along them.
Then add some more curves to his chest and add some suspenders along with a flower to his chest. This area will also have stripes along it.
Finally, we will draw the top of his pants, and they will be drawn in such a way that they look a little too big for him.
Step 4 – Now, complete the legs and add the arms
We are starting to perfect this scary clown drawing! First, use some more curves to complete the hem of his baggy trousers that extend to his legs.
We’ll be adding his shoes in the next step, so don’t worry about the empty spaces there for the moment.
After you’ve finished the pants and added the pleats, we’ll be able to add his hands. The left hand will have long, sharp, almost claw-like fingers.
There will be some small jagged lines along each finger to make it look like his fingers are popping out of some gloves.
The right hand will be clenched into a fist clutching a knife for an extra creepy look.
Then we can move on to the details and final touches in the next step.
Step 5 – Add some final details to your scary clown drawing
Before we add some color to your painting, we will first complete the final small details in this step of the how to draw a scary clown tutorial.
You’ll also get the chance to add some elements of your own!
For now, we will focus on drawing his shoes. They can be redrawn with some circles and will be quite long and thin to give them an oversized look.
Once this shoe is complete, you can add some details of your own! It can be a lot of fun to paint a cool background for an image and a creepy carnival backdrop can be a good choice to make.
What setting would you choose for this clown?
Step 6 – Finish your scary clown drawing with some colors
To finish off this scary clown drawing, we’re going to finish with some color. We used a lot of colors that in other cases could be quite bright and vibrant, but we used several other shades of these colors to match the spooky vibe.
You can create a similarly muted look, or you can keep the colors bright and cheerful to add a bit of irony to the image!
If you want more muted tones, then watercolor or crayons would be a good choice.
Lighter tones can be achieved with something like crayons or acrylic paint, and now the choice is up to you! What colors and mediums will you use?
