How to Draw a Baby Monkey - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: The baby monkey's head is mostly round--just curve out the chin a little and leave a space open for the neck.

Step 2: Draw two circles for the eye and a curved line for the nose. Don't forget to add a mouth!

Step 3: Next, we outline the face with a line. Then we draw his ear by making a large C shape toward the back of the head, with another, smaller C inside it.

Step 4: From there, draw a downward curving line. This will be the back of our baby monkey. Add a small tail, and curve the line around to form the rump.

Step 5: The top half of the monkey's hind leg looks like a big number 2 that moves down into the foot. Then draw another line like an L. The foot should have toes that look a lot like your fingers!

Step 6: Now we draw the front leg. Draw a straight line down for one side, and the other side has a curve as it goes up toward our monkey's face. The foot looks the same as the previous one.

Step 7: Do the same for the other front leg. The other hind leg is just a small arc under the monkey's rump. That's it, you've drawn a baby monkey! These adorable animals can range in color from very dark brown to a light red. Their faces are a lighter color than their soft fuzzy fur.
