Description: Here is a lesson that I forgot to upload last week, and today I will be giving you all the 411 on this incredibly cute, and adorable little animal that plays in the trees and eats bananas on a regular basis. As with all the easy lessons have on the site, this tutorial on "how to draw an easy monkey" is going to be wicked fun to draw. Monkeys are really fun animals to draw, and once you create your own money, I’m sure you will be extremely happy that you tackled this lesson to full completion. As always drawing easy animals is one of my favorite things to do. They are easy to start, finish, and great fun to color in when the drawing is all done. This version of an easy monkey looks a lot like the monkey that is in Dragoart’s Top 50 called a baby monkey. All I did was use the same concept, and created a better version of the baby monkey and named it an easy monkey. Well guys, that is all for now, and be sure to join me for another fun tutorial. Adios people, and have an awesome day!
