How to Draw a Cartoon Orangutan - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Start with the eyes. Draw two circles a little way apart and fill them in.

Step 2: Then draw in the face with an “M” shape above the eyes and extending down on both sides and curving back toward the middle. Then draw in a circle with a space in the top, just under the eyes. Draw in a couple small circles in the space and a long curve under the nose and a shorter curve just below that for the mouth.

Step 3: Draw in a fuzzy circle around the face for the head and add in a small circular ear on the right side of the head.

Step 4: Next, draw the fuzzy arms. Start by drawing a long curved, jagged line with two shorter fuzzy lines and a few curved lines for fingers. Then draw another curved fuzzy line with a short fuzzy line extending diagonally from the thumb and a hand with curved lines for fingers.

Step 5: Now draw in a curved fuzzy line from the arm on the left side to a semi-circle by the hand. Then draw another curved fuzzy line from the elbow of the arm on the left side and a rounded rectangle with a few curving lines extending about half-way across the foot for the toes.
