How to Draw a Gorilla for Kids
- Draw the outlines of the head and torso
The head should look like a pear and the torso should look like a big bean.
- Draw the outlines of the face
Gradually draw the outline of the face. Start at the top, then draw a nose and lip oval around the large mouth.
- Draw the eyes and mouth
First of all, draw the round eyes, then the similar round pupils inside them. Then draw a smiling mouth inside the oval.
- Draw the arms
Start by sketching the upper part of the limbs, then, at the lower part, draw the hands, clenched into fists.
- Draw the legs
As in the previous step, start by drawing the upper parts of the legs, then draw the feet. The legs should be noticeably smaller than the arms.
- Draw details on the body
Draw the details of the chest on the torso. Next, use zigzag lines to draw the hair on the lower parts of the arms and legs.
- Draw details on the head
First, draw rounded ears on the sides of the head. Then draw the fur on the top of the head and on the neck.
- Erase the guidelines
Using an eraser, remove any extra lines from the gorilla drawing. You can outline the gorilla drawing with a dark pencil to make it more expressive.
- Color the gorilla drawing
In order to color the gorilla drawing, I used brown and beige, but you can use gray and black.
To make your gorilla drawing even more interesting, you can complement it by drawing some additional elements.
- You can draw jungle, beautiful trees, and some kind of animals
- Alternatively, you can add a few more other gorillas in the background
- You can also draw other animals, such as birds or butterflies, to make the drawing even more vivid.
