STEP 1. Okay in this first step what you will do is draw out the guidelines for the monkey. Right now it looks like some form of robot, but it will all take form in later steps. First draw an egg shape circle attached to a tiny line. Then from the line draw another line that goes straight across to form shoulders, the whole shape should look like a cannon. Inside the cannon shape draw another egg shaped circle, draw another curved line that comes from the end of the cannon shape and goes all the way down and under to form the back and the butt of the snow monkeys body. Sketch in two cow bell shapes for the hands and you can them move to the next step.   STEP 2. The snow monkey at this point is starting to look like an Eskimo wearing a big warm coat.You will be drawing the same exact thing on your sketch. Start off by sketching the outer shape of the snow monkey. As you can see the coat on the monkey is fairly thick, that is why it resembles an Eskimo. After you sketch out the top, go around to the lower front and sketch in the front part of the body including the hands, tail, and feet. At the end of this step you should have a full looking frame for the monkey.   STEP 3. This step is pretty short and sweet. What you will be doing is sketching in the face and hands. Remember the Japaneses snow monkey's face resembles a human face, so the eyes and nose should be symmetrical. Lightly sketch a line going straight down the middle of the face to help guide you to draw eyes that line up perfectly. shape the face of the monkey and draw the lining for the nose. After you finish the face move down to the right and sketch in the hands and fingers. This should be easy because the hands are a closed fist.   STEP 4. This is the step where you will be fluffing up the fur all around the monkeys body. As you can see it looks like he is actually wearing a winter coat and the only thing showing is the face and hands. Pretty strange huh. Like I said before, they only have coats like this in the winter months. During the summer all that fur is ahead right off and they look much more thinned out. After you lightly sketch the hair all over the body on the snow monkey move to the final step.   STEP 5. This is your final step. What you want to do here to make your monkey look like this, is erase all the guidelines that you drew in step 1. Clean up your sketch from the pencil lines that may have grazed the paper when you where drawing your sketch. After that all that you have to do is color him in. You should have an image that looks like the one you see here.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
