Drawing cartoon monsters: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • The most popular monsters are Bigfoot, vampires and werewolves.
  • Monsters are without a doubt the most popular theme in B-movies!
  • No monsters were ever found in a closet...

Step 1

How to draw cartoon monsters step 1!

What I like with drawing monsters is that you can draw virtually... anything! No rules, no guidelines! Your monster can have any shape! But, if you draw him with long sharp teeth (1), scary yellow eyes, a small tail (3) and big hands (5), then he might look a little scarier! One thing is sure: the one on your left is really frightening! (the one behind you too!)

Step 2

Ok... seriously! This monster is really well designed! A big body, long and strong arms. Some small legs! I really wish I would never meet this guy face-to-face! I might lose the battle! I also like the long horns and the numerous sharp teeth. But that's just one monster. Let's see how we could draw a funnier one!

Step 3

Start your lesson by drawing a rectangle for the body. Next, add some legs and some arms to your character. As you can see, this monster doesn't have a body. It's just a head with arms and legs!

You can now sketch some nice finger nails to your creation. Finish your artwork by drawing the eyes, the mouth and a single tooth. Here you go! A funny monster ready to make people scream... or laugh!

Step 4

Use your imagination! Make your monster funny (1), a little stupid (2), scary (5) or strange (4). Since almost anything with teeth and yellow eyes can look like a monster, you can't really make a mistake! Just experiment and create unique and original monsters for the fun of it! Have fun!
