Place the four outermost points. Remember that the margins between them and the sheet edges should not be the same size.
Sketch out the chimp’s head and body by drawing two circles for the head and an oval for the body. Don’t go into details, just try to work with body proportions.
Mark the midline of the monkey’s spine. Using the previous steps, draw the chimpanzee’s forelimbs and hind limbs. Mark joints with circles and bones with lines.
Use the spine line as the line of symmetry. Remember that chimpanzees’ anatomy is very similar to ours. Use this knowledge
Mark the line between the monkey’s snout. Place the ears, eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth position with straight lines. No details, only proportions.
Place the monkey’s palm and paws.
The rings are joints, the lines are bones. Do not be lazy to look up information about the structure of the object you are trying to draw. Especially when your goal is the most realistic image.
Now it’s time to work on the “muscle” layer. Draw with smooth, curved lines that the body outlines. Don’t forget about the chimpanzee’s face. Place the ears, eyes, nose and mouth.
At this step, you can start working on the details. Draw wrinkles on the face and limbs of an animal. Draw feathers. It seems to “repeat” the volume of the body. In addition, the hair has different lengths. Since the chimpanzee’s left hind leg is in the “shadow”, no more details are needed.
Smooths and erases unnecessary lines, making hair denser where there are shadows. Also emphasize the forefoot contours. This will add aerial perspective for you to draw. Your image is ready!
