The Demogorgon is a scary creature from the Netflix show Stranger Things. The creatures come from the Upside Down, an otherworldly place where monsters are born. Eleven and her friends in Hawkins, Indiana fought off the Demogorgon to save their friend, Will Byers.

Did you know? The gang from Stranger Things named the monsters "Demogorgons" after a type of monster from the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game.

In this tutorial, I will show you the step-by-step process for drawing a cartoon Demogorgon. All you will need is a pencil, an eraser, and a sheet of paper.

If you would like to add some color to your monster, you can pick up some colored pencils or paints. Use them after you finish creating the outline. You can also add extra horns, claws, or markings to your cartoon Demogorgon. Feel free to make it look like your unique creation!
