Hi, my name is Danny Green, I’m a cartoonist and a teacher here at the Guilded Page in Santa Fe, New Mexico. And today we’re going to learn to draw cartoon monkey. And we’ll start with a basic head shape here. I mean fewer things really brighten you more joy in life than, you know, acquire wealth and status whatever like that. We’ll begin to draw our cartoon monkey, what’s it all worth really. And then the ears, we love the ears of the monkeys, nice big round ears. Monkeys have a little bit of snout here so I kinda draw half circle here for the snout, sort of like half, give us half circle shape there. And then we’ll taper the neck down here, nice slender monkey shape there. Long, long arms, long arms in monkeys. Big old paws. Little, little chest area like that, always think of monkeys being a little tiny guys, you know, like that, little tiny frail features like that, you know. And little bow legs on monkeys, little tiny legs on there, again, big old paws on there. Little, big paws and fingers for climbing. And then the tail, everyone loves to draw a monkey tail, everyone loves to draw a monkey tail. So we just draw, start with a rump there we just draw a big curve and curl it back around here, and just curl it up there, and there we go, there’s our cartoon monkey. And move on to the next phase now we draw our ink line, brush pen filled with ink. And just start adding our ink line then, just little, little short furs, little short lines up front to indicate fur, there right around the ears. And inside shadow of the ears there and nice round shape for the ears like that. Here’s the snout of him, little half curve there like a half coconut. Draw the mouth there, and lips, and just like to draw a little fur bits. Again the arms just like lots of nice long elegant lines, but I like to terminate them with little short little hatch lines to indicate fur throughout. Nice monkey paws, little draw monkey hands, nice little stumpy curve things, little hooks on the end for climbing. Draw the toes there, little longer on the feet there, longer toes there and hatch lines for fur. And you give the monkey little furry look, again, little chest of the monkey and there we go. Round his legs there and little bow legs on monkeys. Now, we’ll draw the tail here, we’ll draw a nice long curve of the tail, curl it around, draw a little tuffs of fur at the end there and then curl it back around again, almost like the curl in monkey tails. And there it is, and there’s our outline for our cartoon monkey. Now we’re ready for color, and we’re gonna go to our pastels and we’re gonna add our brown and add some color on the lower regions of it here, around the shadow area. And add that there, and under the legs and the arms, and brown, brown monkeys, so. Now that we add our colors, so now we’re ready for our stump, and we can start smearing color around and start distributing brown around here and just start to get in the shadow areas here and sort of little quick tuffs and reinforce the fur look to things and color everywhere. And there we are, there’s our cartoon monkey. And, now we’ve been through some basic animals that we’ve drawn today and we can use a lot of what we learn from that to draw other animals as well, and I hope all of these have been helpful for you. And I like to thank you all for watching.
