How to Draw Japanese Macaque Monkey

In this lesson, we will learn how to draw Japanese Macaque Monkey.

If you visit Japanese mountains, you can find them virtually everywhere in the wilderness.

They are very intelligent creatures. In the countryside, they very often come from the hills down to the urban area to search for food, which is why many farmers do not like them.

You can learn how to draw Japanese Macaque Monkey very easily because the shape of this animal is simple with not too many difficult details.


This tutorial is one of the first I've created. I used a rather quick drawing technique, where I began outlining only the silhouette first.

If I would draw Japanese macaque Monkeys again today, I would make this tutorial in a completely different and much simpler way.

If you are a beginner, this technique may be a bit challenging but I encourage you to try it out at least.

Sitting Japanese Macaque with a baby monkey looks so fluffy and puffy. Round and furry shapes. You cannot make many mistakes here.


Let's Draw Japanese Macaque

I saw this somewhere in a magazine and I liked it instantly. You do not need to work out the details.

Outline the contour of the entire shape. Approximate lines are OK.

Outline the basic shapes of each, adult monkey and the child. Outline the face of both and the approximate shape of the limbs.

In my opinion, drawing Japanese Macaque Monkey with the child looks is a lot of fun.

Here 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”.

Now, take your color pencils and begin to fill up the surface with a very light brown color.

Color the face with a pinkish color. Child’s face pink color is weaker than the adult’s. Outline the contrast lines on the adult’s face: mouth, nose, and eyes.

Monkeys are similar to humans. So when you learn how to draw a monkey, you should pay a bit attention of to how the face features are done.

When you have both faces ready, begin to sketch the furs. It is easy and simple work. You only have to be careful to keep the shapes of the limbs visible.

Always use combinations of several brown color shades. Every animal’s fur is always a combination – a blend of similar color tones, seldom never only one color tone.

Add color pencil contrasts where you see necessary. Observe the picture carefully and just work it out in a similar way. Use dark brown and black color pencil too.

Now you can show your friends too, how to draw Japanese Macaque Monkey.
