In this really simple drawing tutorial, I will show you how to draw King Kong – the most famous gorilla in the world.
Please note that this tutorial on how to draw King Kong can be used to depict a common gorilla or other gorilla characters such as Gorilla Grodd, Congorilla, or Donkey Kong from Mario.
I have simplified the King Kong drawing so that young artists do not face difficulties in the process of work. I also made the proportions of the character more cute and cartoonish.
At the end of the lesson, you can try to improve your drawing. For example, you can draw some environment (jungle or New York skyscrapers) and small helicopters surrounding King Kong.

How to Draw King Kong
- Sketch the head of King Kong.
Note that King Kong’s head looks like an egg at this stage.
- Sketch out the torso.
Do this with an elongated oval geometric shape.
- Draw the limbs.
The fore and hind legs of King Kong should be drawn roughly the same.
- Add the hands and feet.
Try to repeat the outlines of the hands and feet as in my example.
- Draw the ears and outlines of the face.
The ears look like two semicircles, and the outlines of the face look like a geometric figure like an hourglass.
- Add the eyes.
First, draw the eyes in the form of circles, then a long and thick eyebrow above them.
- Add the nose and mouth.
Draw two dots for the nostrils, then a line above them and a mouth that curves into a smile.
- Erase the guidelines.
Just get rid of unnecessary auxiliary lines without touching the necessary lines.
- Color King Kong.
To do this, you can use shades of brown or gray, as in my example.
