They're cute, fun and scary, and perfect for Halloween--although you can draw a voodoo doll at any time of the year. A good drawing of a voodoo looks like a real plushie, with small stitches and a soft fabric-stuffed body. A tuft of hair and a pair of buttons for eyes completes the drawing. This adorable cartoon voodoo doll will look great hanging up in your room or classroom. Just don't base it on a real person, because they probably won't be too happy when they see it!

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Voodoo Doll

How to Draw Voodoo Doll: Step 1

1. Draw a slightly elongated circle, leaving an open space at the top. In the middle of the circle, draw a single curved line like you're drawing a peach.

2. Draw a tuft of hair to fill in the opening at the top of the circle. To do this, draw a variety of U-shapes and curved and pointed lines that are connected together. Add a few small lines inside the hair to show texture.

3. For the right eye, draw a circle with a smaller circle inside it. For the left eye, draw an oval shape so that the button appears to be tilted at an angle. Draw a second oval inside it, then draw two straight lines outside the button and connect them with a curved line to add depth.

4. For the thread in the left eye, draw two slightly curved lines and connect them with a small black splotch at the ends so the thread appears to be sewn into the button. For the right eye, draw two diagonal lines with a set of opposite-facing lines beneath them to create an X. Again, connect the lines with black splotches at the ends. For the mouth, draw several diagonal lines in a V pattern. Don't connect the lines--allow for small gaps so the lines look like stitches.

5. Draw a large curved line underneath the head, then add two smaller lines to create the body. Draw a set of parallel lines near the center of the body, then add a horizontal curved line near the bottom to create depth. Add a heart shape positioned to the right beneath the head.

6. For the left arm, draw two sweeping curved lines and add a third line to form the arm. For the right arm, draw a curved line and an irregular slightly curved line, then connect them with another curved line at the bottom. Add a parallel line near the left side of the arm.

7. Make an oblong, vaguely round shape where the right leg will be. Add a parallel curve near the bottom of the foot, then a small upward curve to add dimension. Draw a straight line to make the bottom of the left leg, then draw a perpendicular curve for the bottom of the foot. Round out the top of the foot, then add a straight line to connect it to the body.

8. Now it's time for the fun part: the stitches! Draw diagonal lines and crosses along the seams of the voodoo doll. Keep the lines irregular to give them a loosely stitched appearance.

9. Add the stick pins by drawing straight lines that stick out from the doll, then topping off the lines with an oval shape. Draw short lines where the pin makes the fabric to show that the needle is piercing the cloth.
