Time to imitate everything you see to succeed at this lesson on how to draw a monkey! Although the cartoon character is quite easy to draw, you still need to follow all steps carefully to make sure that the result is perfect and as cute as possible. Younger kids can also try to duplicate this illustration since all steps are really easy to achieved.
Below you can find the final colored version of this adorable cartoon monkey. In this version, all outlines were removed. However, they will be visible during the drawing lesson to make sure that you can see how each step is carefully created. Let's begin!
First, draw an oval shape to create the head. Look at the illustration below to see exactly how this shape must be created. As you can see, the bottom is flat (well, not too flat) while the top is narrower.
When you are finished, you can add the body using a long oval shape. The body must be narrower compared to the head. Then, you can add the mouth area using another oval shape and the nose.
Cool! The legs are a little bit more complex to illustrate. The back legs are made from simple curved lines. The front ones are similar to arms and hands of a human.
It's now time to draw the eyes and the pupils using large circular shapes. Notice that the eyes are located a little bit closer to the mouth. The ears are also drawn using circles.
More details are needed to complete this lesson properly. First, draw two small oval shapes inside the eyes. Then, draw the mouth using a simple curved line. Another line can be added on the stomach while circular shapes can also be sketched inside the ears.
That's it! This is the final cartoon monkey in a black and white version. This character should be easy to duplicate if you don't hesitate to practice as often as needed.
