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

Step 1: Time to get silly! Draw a circular-shaped head with two small domes at the top for the monkey's ears.

Step 2: Within each ear, add a small circle. Next, move over to the right and add two circles next to one another for the eyes. Right below the eyes in the middle, add another dot for the nose and a curved smile below that. Lastly, outline the facial features with a curved line within the frame of the face.

Step 3: Next, at the base of the chin in the center, draw a vertical line downward. Add another line off of this to the left, adding a few bumps and then directing it downward.

Step 4: Next, from the base of the left ear, add a curved line that hooks downward. Draw in a parallel like to this one and connect the two lines at the bottom with a hand and some fingers. Move over to the right, and below the chin, repeat the previous step to create the right arm and hand.

Step 5: Now, it's time for the legs. Off to the right of the left hand, draw in a curved line that directs downward. Add the foot and toes to the base and lastly, draw a vertical line up from the foot to complete the leg. Repeat this step off to the right to create the second leg and foot.

Step 6: Now, off to the left of the left leg, add a curly line that curls up tight at the end. Match this line with another one that is parallel to create the tail.

Step 7: Go find your monkey a banana! Great work!
