While monsters are traditionally scary creatures, they can be friendly, too. Learn how to draw a monster face to create your own fictional character.

Traditionally, a monster is a scary creature that does bad things, like frightening people or attacking villages. Godzilla is a classic monster that's starred in movies for decades.

However, cartoon monsters, like Mike and Sully from Monsters, Inc. are friendly and entertaining instead of scary.
