How to Draw a Sock Monkey

Artist: Dawn / April 4, 2013

Step 1.

Make two circles, one for the head and another for the body. You will then sketch in the facial guidelines like so.

Step 2.

Smooth out the shape of the monkey's head, then draw in the small knob like ears.

Step 3.

We will work on the sock monkey's face by first giving him a lid line across the forehead, then we can utilize the facial guidelines to draw in the eyes, snout and mouth area, and then add the nostril slits and open mouth stitching.

Step 4.

Sock monkeys are known for having limp bodies and limbs. You will draw out the entire body for your monkey, which includes the noodle like arms, and stump like legs.

Step 5.

Lastly, add the marking lines to create the hands and feet, then add your own emblem on the monkey's chest. For me I drew a heart with an M in the center which is the first letter of my last name. Erase the mistakes then you're done.

Step 6.

Here is your finished drawing on a sock monkey. Now color it in, or decorate it first.
