Alright now, in this step we shall begin with an egg shape for the core of the body. When we draw all of these odd lines, you must place them in the exact spot shown. These lines will help guide your drawing to a better outcome. So let's continue! Ad   


Ok, this is when we will progress to draw some of the facial features. This only includes drawing the big snarly mouth of the beast. We will now sketch in the lines for the arms and the stubby legs of the monster. Don't forget to add some lines for t   


This is the fun part! As you can see, this monster looks like a spider standing upwards on four legs! In the next step we will add more lines to make it not look like that! So in this step, let’s focus on drawing the rest of the bottom of the arms    


Yay! This is where we will add in those extra details to the eyes! Remember how it looked weird and spider-ish in the previous step? Once you've added the eyelids and the pupils, you'll have yourself a nice set of monstrous eyes! You can use this sam   


This is basically what you should end up with for the lineart. All of the features I shown you to draw should be included in your line work! Remember to erase the unneeded guidelines from step one so that your final picture looks clean and cut! Don't

Description: So this is Dragon_Queen speaking and I’m here to give you all a lesson again. Today we are going to draw a really cool creature that everyone draws. We are going to learn how to draw a monster step by step! The monster we will be drawing today is just a cartoony and typical monster you see in kids cartoons. I wanted to try to draw a very easy and basic monster for kids to draw and hang them up on the fridge. When I created this creature I wanted to add five eyes to it. I was going for a monsters inc. character look. I absolutely love the characters from Monsters Inc.! They’re so awesome! My favorite characters are Mike and Sulley! Now anyways, if you want to create monsters like those, you must follow these steps! Modern monsters today are highly detailed, very scary, unusual, cool, and very diverse! When you create your own beast, make sure you add different features to it. This could be like three sets of eyes, horns, frills, wings, scales, and much more. When I was little I made my own creepy beasts! I used to show my little sister (who is now older) on how to draw monsters! My favorite monsters nowadays are like the ones from the movie and games Doom, Pumpkin Head, Alien, Cloverfield, and Hellraiser. A lot of monsters in movies or games are not your typical monster. They are more detailed and imagined. I make my own beasts all the time! Sometimes I make my dragons look like freaky distorted creatures! Anyways, this tutorial should be very easy, especially for the kids. This tutorial will give you the hands on basics on how to draw a cartoon monster step by step! I give all of you aspiring artists great luck! Have fun and never give up people!
