Instructions

  1. 1

    Draw a pumpkin on a sheet of paper. Pumpkins aren't difficult to draw. Start at the bottom and begin drawing a circle, bringing the line slightly down as you reach the top of the drawing, then up again as you finish the circle. This creates a little indent for you to draw the stem for your pumpkin.

  2. 2

    Sketch a face on paper to get an idea what you want to draw before you begin work on an actual pumpkin. Use a pencil for this sketch. Try various combinations of cartoon-like elements. Consider combining geometrical shapes, such as ovals, triangles and squares, to achieve a funny appearance.

  3. 3

    Draw two eyes on your pumpkin. You're going for a funny look, so draw the eyes large and make the pupils go in different directions. Make big nostrils for the nose. For the mouth, draw a crooked smile and sketch the tongue hanging from one corner of the mouth. Aim for a cartoon look and be creative. Don't try to draw perfectly. The object is to create something that will make others laugh.

  4. 4

    Add elements of humour to your funny face once you've drawn the basic cartoon facial features. Draw a pair of glasses over your pumpkin's eyes. Sketch a band aid around one of the earpieces. You could make one of the lenses cracked for a funny effect. Sketch a few tufts of hair on your pumpkin's head, with the individual hair going every which way. You could also make the eyes different shapes.

  5. 5

    Transfer your idea to an actual pumpkin. Use a black marker to draw the same features you drew on paper. If you're using a stencil, hold the stencil up to your pumpkin and trace around the inside edge of your stencil.
