 HERE IS MY HALLOWEEN INSTRUCTABLE. I USED A FREE TRIAL OF SKETCHBOOK 6 WHICH ENDED THE DAY I FINISHED THIS PROJECT. I STILL HAVE SKETCHBOOK EXPRESS BUT NOW I FEEL LIMITED. LOOKS LIKE IT'S TIME TO UPGRADE. I HOPE YOU ENJOY DRAWING IT AS MUCH AS I DID. I DID NOT DO THIS INSTRUCTABLE SO THAT YOURS WOULD LOOK EXACTLY LIKE MINE, I LEFT SOME ROOM FOR YOU TO MAKE IT YOUR OWN. HAVE FUN I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HOW THEY COME OUT.

Step 1: START

Picture of START
TO DRAW AND COLOR A MUMMY YOU MUST START WITH A BLANK PAGE.
THIS IS THE BACKGROUND LAYER THAT WILL SIT BELOW ALL THE OTHER LAYERS.
IT DOESN'T NEED TO HAVE THE ACTUAL BACKGROUND OF YOUR DRAWING ON IT
BECAUSE YOU CAN ARRANGE YOUR LAYERS IN THE LAYER WINDOW LATER.

Step 2: HORIZON LINE

Picture of HORIZON LINE
THE HORIZON LINE IS NOT CRUCIAL FOR THIS PARTICULAR DRAWING.
ALTHOUGH A STARTING POINT IS PRICELESS.
USE A LIGHT COLOR OR ADJUST THE OPACITY IN THE BRUSH WINDOW.
WHICH IS IN THE UPPER LEFT OF MY SCREEN NEXT TO THE TOOLS.

Step 3: STRUCTURE

Picture of STRUCTURE
UNLESS FREEHAND IS YOUR THING I WOULD USE
THE RECTANGLE AND/OR ELIPSE DRAWING TOOLS.
USE THE SHAPES TO FORM YOUR BASIC CONCEPT.
IN THIS CASE IT WILL BE A MUMMY. TO USE THE TOOL JUST
CLICK & HOLD, DRAG TO THE DESIRED SIZE AND RELEASE.
DETAILS SHOULD BE THE LAST THING ON YOUR MIND RIGHT NOW.

Step 4: LIGHT DETAIL

Picture of LIGHT DETAIL
NOW SOME LIGHT DETAILS OR SKETCHING.
ONCE AGAIN A LIGHT COLOR OR LOW OPACITY WILL BE ALL YOU NEED HERE.
THIS IS GOING TO BE JUST A GUIDE FOR THE ACTUAL .
SO IT IS A GOOD TIME TO START A NEW LAYER.
IN THE LAYERS WINDOW CLICK THE + IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER.
THIS WILL BE LAYER 1.
Hey cool, I drew a mummy almost the exact same way.
Nice work.
this is really well done, how long did it take you to complete?

THANKS SO MUCH !
I'M NOT SURE... 2 SESSIONS FIRST I DREW IT AND ARRANGED THE STEPS...
PROB ABLY 3ISH HOURS. PROBABLY ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT ON THE WRITING PART. SO 6 HRS GIVE OR TAKE. IT'S FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER DONE ONE OF THESE... MAYBE A BIT FASTER NEXT TIME
