Step 3: Draw the chimpanzee's huge ears as two sets of half-loops, one inside the other. Make sure the outer loop is darker.

Step 4: Draw the chimpanzee's left arm as two ovals joined ovals. One oval should be much longer than the other. The arm should run from right to left across the body as you look at it.

Step 5: Draw the other arms and legs as two similar sets of ovals. They should be angled to make it look like the chimpanzee is sitting.
