How to Draw a Chibi Monster, Chibi Monster

Artist: Dawn / August 21, 2011

Step 1.

For the first step all you need to do is draw out a circle and then make another shape but smaller for the snout of the monster.

Step 2.

I know this step may seem weird, but you will need to start sketching out the folded or wrinkled lines for the top of the snout, and for the forehead and brows.

Step 3.

Now you can draw in the nose and as you can see its sort of shaped like a wide heart. Next, draw out the large eyes, and then draw the mouth and or lips.

Step 4.

To get the face structure drawn right, you will need to draw the jawline. Next draw in the two teeth and as you can see they seem to be flat and curled in. You will then draw the nostril hols, and add some dots for the whisker holes too.

Step 5.

Now it's time to draw in the monster's ears, and then sketch out the long straggly looking hair that is drawn in layers. I also made my monster with three small horns that are curled or curved back. Add detailing inside of the ears, and on the hair.

Step 6.

Draw the chest, and then draw the first leg and as you can see it looks kind of deformed. Draw the long nails on each parted toe, and be sure to sketch in some hair on the elbow.

Step 7.

Draw the other leg, and then draw in the toes and claws. Also add some detailing or definition to the chest like so.

Step 8.

For the last step all you have to do is draw out the hind leg, and then draw the small relaxed back foot and toes. Add a tail, and then erase the guides you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 9.

Here is the finished drawing when you are all done. Now you can go ahead and start coloring in your new chibi monster that you drew from scratch. Great work guys keep it up!

Description: Well guys Iā€™m back like I said I was going to be, and up next is going to be another chibi that is not based on a character from a television series or magazine. Instead, I will be showing you "how to draw a chibi monster", step by step. I decided to make this type of monster because I had everything else that was based on this childish form. The only gripe I have with this drawing concept is the fact that I got carried away and went from a chibi, to a total formation of some sort of mythical looking creature. The end result actually came out looking rather fun, and pretty creative. The golden brown shade that I sued to color in my version of a chibi monster suits the concept of the monster just fine. My brother said that it actually looked like some sort of cross with a Sabertooth tiger. Anyway, have fun as you tackle the task of drawing a chibi monster. Novice artist may find this tutorial a bit hard, but if you take your time and follow the steps, you should do fine. Adios amigos, and peace out!
