Description: I hope you all liked the first tutorial that I submitted on Max from the awesome children’s book by Maurice Sendak. She wrote the book back in 1963 and she takes the reader on an awesome adventure to a far away place where the wild things are. The boy’s name is Max and he meets a bunch of various monsters that are referred to as the “wild things”. One of the boy’s favorite mythical creatures is a monster named Moishe. That is who I will be teaching you to draw today. You will be given a lesson on “how to draw Where The Wild Things Are step by step”. In the new movie based on the popular children’s book that was directed by Spike Jonze, takes the viewer on the very same journey that Max takes his readers on in the book. One of the wild things that Max is very fond of is the character that I chose to make this lesson out of. Moishe is a great big monster with horns, a striped torso, and a fury solid colored bottom. He is one of my favorite wild things and I can see why Max took a liking to him right away. I loved drawing out this book character because he reminded me of when I was a kid. I think you guys will have fun as well when you learn “how to draw Where The Wild Things Are step by step”. I have two more lessons to upload and I think you will all be very pleased with what is next to come. Peace peeps and happy drawing.
