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.

If you’re ready, grab your art supplies and start creating!
