How To Draw A Scary Clown

Updated on December 12, 2010

Scary Clowns And Drawing Them

Trying to make a clown scary is good fun in drawing, you take something that could appear sinister already and you turn it into something even more sinister and evil. There is just something evil about clowns anyway, the way they laugh and smile with their clown make up on.

Check out this other clown drawing hubpage

I for one, have never ever been scared of clowns, but others have, which makes it a great subject to create a scary clown drawing right here, right now!

Just A Few Sketches To Get The Idea Of Your Scary Clown

I've decided to do a face profile from the side to hopefully show an evil grin from the clown, as this would make for a scary clown, all the basic lines are there, to give me an idea and once these are lightly drawn in, we can continue with the drawing.

As you can see the clowns nose is in place and the whacky hair is there, so all we need to do is build that up more by sketching more focused.

Give Your Scary Clown Face Some Eyes And Other Details

 Drawing in some details works at this point and it something that maybe some planning could help to get better results, I drew this clown face quite randomly and straight off the bat, so there was no real planning, just a get one with it approach.

I've built up some of the clowns features and that all important spiky toothed evil grin and the eyes I have gone for something similar to snake eyes, just to jazz it up a little.

Inking The Clowns Image

 Adding ink is always a favourite, I use one of two types of inks, if I am feeling in a professional mood I use Idian ink as it is one of the best inks for the comic book medium, plus it's dark as hell too and works quite fine.

The other inks I use are the fountain pen ink with the plastic nibs and these work ok too, so it's just about finding your own way of working really, because when it comes down to it you may not ink your drawings anyway, it comes down to personal choice and I prefer to ink them.

I go over the pencil lines but I try to better the pencils in some way, I try to build up the clown face more with the ink, because I know it will be permanent, so I draw lines more fuller or just add a few simple cross hatching marks here and there.
