Hi, I'm Lara from Creative Drawing Studio in London. We offer art classes for children and adults. We believe that drawing is an enjoyable skill, for anyone can learn.
So why not give it a go, and see what happens? We are going to draw a monkey. First, I'm going to use a pencil, a 2B pencil and a white eraser, so if we need to make any changes along the way, we are able to do that. We are going to start with an eye, which we colour it dark, and we'll make that kind of small somewhere in the middle of the page.
And let's put a little highlight in it, so let's not colour the whole dark in, and we'll go across to put the other eye, right here. It can be kind of a squashy dot again with a highlight, like that. Right above the eye, we'll put a curvy line for the eyelid and let's put another one here.
We'll start the bridge of the nose which will be some wrinkles, which is some little curvy lines there and two nostrils, two little dots like that. On the side of the face here, we'll draw a curvy line like this and then bring it up for the forehead, and come around the side and down like that. Let's extend the side of the face out with a curvy line like this and come across for the front of the mouth and then, up to the other side of the face.
Let's draw a little curvy line for the lip and another one underneath, like this. And we'll start to go on the direction to the side of the face, and let's bring this part in here and back out again, and join that up like this. And monkeys have little wrinkles in front of their nose.
Let's draw the top of the head now, which means we'll comes across the side for bit of the fur, like that and come way across here like this, towards the end of the ear. And we'll see the back of the ear on this side which is a curvy line coming down and starting like there. And on this side, we'll place the other ear, which comes up, out, down and around like that.
And we'll draw a little bit of the inside of the ear with a curvy line like that. Let's work on the body, this is going to be a monkey, standing up. So come back from bit of the neck, that will bring its very arm down this side like this.
And let's come and draw the inside of the arm, like this and with another line like that. And let's place in this hand here, which he has a thumb like this, and the inside of the hand here coming out and down the other side of the arm and the hand, some fingers, one, two, three, like this. And put in some little lines there and then, let's draw the bottom of the foot, here, come up and we'll draw some other belly here, and right about from this part of the mouth, we'll put in the edge of the body here, and let's get the leg right across the same length from the other leg, and some of the fur there.
Lets put the feet in first which are similar to the hand, it has a thumb and we'll draw three toes, one, two, three. And another foot here, one, two, three and four, and we can put little straight lines there, to just show some wrinkles.
Now, we are going to put the monkey with its arm up, so we'll come back by the side of the face here and we'll draw an angle line that starts to go up and we'll draw a kind of cuff, a fur and from the elbow following that angle line up.
We'll place in the hand now, and this monkey is going to have a hand that can hold something, the back finger goes like this, curvy line down. Let's put the thumb in here, come back down like this, and let's pretend that the monkey is going to hold, it can hold a toy, it can hold a banana, let's have it holding a yo-yo like that and this is the play for monkey. And that's the monkey.
