Artist: Dawn / December 19, 2011

Step 1.

Begin by making a circle for the head and then sketch in some facial guidelines as well as a body guide.

Step 2.

Thicken the head shape and then draw in two big round ears.

Step 3.

Lets color in some eyes, and then draw the marking line that shapes out the ape's snout or nose and mouth area. Add two dots for the nostrils, and then draw a simple mouth in the form of a smile. Add some ear detailing and move along.

Step 4.

Draw the outlining of the apes body which includes the torso, legs, right arm and hand, as well as the long tail that curls.

Step 5.

Draw the left arm and hand and then draw the foot and toes. You will then make the marking shape on the belly which is in an oval outline.

Step 6.

Now lastly, draw the vine that this ape is holding onto and add some vine detailing. Clean up the drawing and then you are all set to see how your ape looks when he or she is all cleaned up.

Step 7.

This is it guys, the final results to how your ape looks. Color in your drawing and show folks what you have just done.
