click the image to enlargeErase excess lines from the previous initial circle-and-ellipse drawing. Choose which lines should remain and which you erase.
click the image to enlargeWe will use the central axis-line crossing the head and the mouth. It will help us to draw the parts of monkey’s face – the eyes, the nose and the mouth.
click the image to enlargeWhen you have these three elements, you are virtually ready with the drawing.
click the image to enlargeYou can begin to shade the area around the eyes and, to point out the nose.
click the image to enlargeYou did the basic and most important job. The face of your monkey drawing is now ready.
click the image to enlargeDraw the final outlines of the body, the hands, belly, back and the legs.
click the image to enlargeContinue shading the body as you see on the picture. Notice that the pencil strokes are quite rough; I did not make any special attention to the exactness.

click the image to enlargeOutline the contour of the entire shape. Approximate lines are OK.
click the image to enlargeOutline the basic shapes of each, adult monkey and the child. Outline the face of both and the approximate shape of the limbs.
click the image to enlargeHere you can sketch the face in more detail. Not too precise please, because you may fall into the trap of: “can’t get it done perfectly”.
click the image to enlargeNow, take your color pencils and begin to fill up the surface with very light brown color.
click the image to enlargeColor the face with pinkish color. Child’s face pink color is weaker than the adult’s. Outline the contrast lines on adult’s face: mouth, nose, and eyes.
click the image to enlargeWhen you have ready the faces, begin to sketch the furs. It is an easy and simple work. You only have to be careful to keep the shapes of the limbs visible.
click the image to enlargeAlways use combinations of more brown color shades. Every animal’s fur is always a combination – blend of similar color tones, almost never only one color tone.
click the image to enlargeAdd color pencil contrasts where you see necessary. Observe the picture carefully and just work it out in similar way. Use dark brown and black color pencil too.
