How to Draw a Baby Gorilla - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Lets start by drawing the head and face. Draw a wavy line straight across the page and curve it straight up at either end. We'll leave a little space for the ears and continue the original line up at either side and curve the two lines together to form the top of our gorilla's head. next, add the ears by drawing an oval in each of the spaces we left before. draw a small curved line to the ears to give them detail. Now we'll draw the face, starting with an outline. draw a half circle to form the Gorilla's chin and draw two curved lines coming up from either side of the chin. draw three overlapping curves across the top of the head to make the gorilla's brow. All thats left to be done now is the face! Draw two circular eyes and leave space in between them. In the space you left draw an upside-down smiley face, and our Gorilla now has eyes and a nose! next draw a squiggly line that curves up in the center, and add a small curved line below it to make the gorilla's mouth. now we can move on to the body!
Step 2: Now we'll add the arms by drawing two curved lines down from the gorilla's head and wrap them around in an oval until they almost connect to form a full oval. In the space between them draw a half circle on the end of each arm and draw two short lines to form the Gorilla's fingers.
Step 3: This is the easiest step of all, drawing the Gorilla's body. We'll simply draw a half circle connecting to the arms, it's as simple as that!
Step 4: To finish off our drawing we'll make the Gorilla's legs. Draw them by making two pairs of lines coming down from the body and connecting the two lines of each pair with a straight line across at the Gorilla's ankles. Finally, we'll draw feet by making two lines with three curves in them and connecting them to the legs.
