Draw an oval in the center of your paper. You can use a compass if you want. You have to extend the bottom two sides into a wavy tail-like structure, connecting to the oval. Erase the rest of the oval outline that lies inside the tail. Once done accurately, you shall get a shape similar to the one in the above picture.

Draw another circle below these two circles while positioning it in between the above ones. Add a curvy line on its top and make two curves on each end to resemble a smiling mouth.
Next, you have to draw two wavy U shapes that are inclined and face in other. You can take visual reference from the above picture. As you can see, these shapes shall form the arms of your animated ghost. Try to make the shapes like hands by bending them slightly in the middle, hinting at the elbows.
Join the two arms and once you are satisfied, you can see the cartoon character coming alive with its cute hands and adorable smile.
Add two parallel lines very close to each other on the top of the joining point of the arms. Continue the lines from the bottom of the arms to form a stick. You can use a ruler to draw perfectly straight lines. This step completes the outline of your cute ghost that is snacking on a lollipop.
Add colors to your drawing. Try to use lighter tones for the body of the ghost, like cream, white, off-white, or beige. Make the eyes dark using shades of black or brown. You can use vibrant, bright colors for the candy, making patterns or prints as you want. Color the stick in shades of brown.
To make the ghost look even cuter, add a pink or rose-shaded circle on each cheek, right below the eyes, to portray a blushing face. You can add shadows by using darker shades on the edges to make the drawing look three-dimensional.
