October is the month for witches and goblins and ghosts aaaand….MONSTERS! So let’s look at one easy way to draw funny or scary monsters! There is no right or wrong way when drawing a monster because, well, monsters come in every shape and size and design, right?! They can be any color you want them to be and have as many (or few) eyes and arms and legs. This is YOUR monster! You’ll need just a few things…a piece of paper and some markers. Oh, and some wiggly eyes make them even cooler!
First, draw some shapes or blobs with your markers. Remember, any shape is A-OK! Yep, even a flower is great.
Next place some wiggly eyes on your monster shapes. You don’t need to glue them down yet unless you want to, then that’s ok. I didn’t glue mine down yet, just in case I wanted to move them as I continued designing my monsters.
Now add more details like noses, mouths, arms, legs, hair, etc.
When you’re finished adding details, glue the wiggly eyes down, if you haven’t already done so. And you did it! You are a MONSTER MAKER!! Great job! I’ll show you my monsters in closer detail to give you some ideas.
This one looks like a person…maybe he or she is making friends with the monsters?
This monster has 3 eyes, 4 arms and 3 legs. Wow!
This orange guy has short arms and legs, funny hair and 3 eyes.
Here’s a one-eyed flower monster running away from something.
Whoa, this monster’s eyes go up and down instead of across! And look how big his ears are!
This guy might have been scared by someone…is it YOU? Maybe the monsters are scared of people?
I hope this will give you some fun ideas about how you can draw some monsters. You can even make up a story about your monster. Or draw them a house…or a pet…some trees…you get the idea! Have fun! 🙂
