Initially, these things were meant to scare the crows and other birds/animals away, hence the name. Our ancestors tried to make them look like real human beings to guard the farms and/or the livestock from the beasts. And while the tradition is still around, these days, we sometimes use scarecrows for fun, for special celebrations, and/or to scare each other.

The birds that feed on crops and/or seeds can cause a lot of financial damage to a farmer, and the scarecrow is a life savior. In the American countryside, these decoys have turned into legends and can be found in the majority of horror movies. As a huge part of the pop culture, they have also “infiltrated” the comic books (like the famous DC character).

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
