Halloween Monster Drawing Tutorial Videos in Adobe Illustrator

Just in time for Halloween: A brand new series of “How To Draw” videos where I show how I create a basic rough sketch in Autodesk SketchBook  Pro software.

This is what the rough sketch looked like when it was completed:

and then I placed this rough sketch on a template layer inside my Adobe Illustrator document and drew and inked the line art for the three characters, the Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin, the witch/vampire lady and the werewolf.
Finally I also colored the artwork in illustrator using flats and shading and also several gradients.

The final artwork looks like this and is 100% vector art so it has no pixels and can be scaled to any size losslessly.
