How to Draw A Monster



Learning how to draw a monster is a very creative experience since these horrible creatures can virtually have all the shapes, sizes and designs you can think of! Indeed, unlike vampires or zombies that are usually created using the same elements, a monster can be big, small, green, blue, red, yellow ... your only limit is your imagination. As long as the creature is ugly and scary, you have a cartoon monster! So let me show you how to draw a cute one using just a few basic tips and six easy steps.

Step 1

First, you need to illustrate the head and the body (that are part of the same shape) using a square with round corners. The legs are made from long rectangles while the feet are created with small triangles.
