In this guide we will draw a cute monkey. The tutorial is split into 11 simple steps. In each step we sketch simple shapes, which, when finished, will connect and create a surprisingly life-like cartoon monkey.
Draw slowly, but confidently, and soon you will have made a great looking monkey drawing. The secret is to take it slow and follow the step-by-step instructions.
Sketch lightly in pencil. It’s fine to try and draw many lines. Erasing mistakes is easy and you will later trace the final lines with thicker lines.
In the following drawing stages, I’ve highlighted each step with lines of blue color.
You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.

Draw the hands. This may be the most difficult part of drawing a monkey. First, draw the thumb so it points a little to the side, then draw the fingers starting from the opposite side of the thumb, and, finally, connect the fingers to the thumb.
