In this tutorial we’ll show you how to draw a gorilla. In one of the previous lessons we have already shown you how to draw the most famous gorilla in the history of cinema – King Kong.
First of all sketch out the head in the form of a large oval. Next, outline the torso, pelvis and limbs, using very light lines.
Sketch out the muzzle and a line for the eyes. Add the volume to the body of the gorilla with simple geometric shapes, as in our example.
Now let’s take care of the details. Sketch out the eyes, the brow ridges, the nostrils and the mouth.
Using clear and dark lines carefully draw out the outlines of the head and facial features of the gorilla.
Carefully draw huge arms. Using short lines create a texture of the hair on the arms. Pay special attention to the palms of our gorilla.
Draw out the huge pectoral muscles and huge abdomen. Carefully draw the hind legs and also use short strokes to draw the texture of the hair.
Paint the eyes black. Next, using hatching add shadows to the body of the gorilla.
The current lesson on how to draw a gorilla was rather for more experienced artists. But if you want a simpler lesson about a gorilla, let us know about it in the comments to this article.
