Now you can learn how to draw a baboon, the world’s largest monkey, with an easy step by step tutorial. They have a look that is all their own.
So it may have been awhile since you wondered how to draw a baboon. BUT, if you are working through the alphabet of animal drawings, and happen to be stuck on the letter “Y”, then this my friend, is also known as a YELLOW Baboon. Problem solved.
Aside from their name, I like the fact that Yellow Baboons are said to have large social families and actually don’t like to fight. They would instead rather just stare each other down. That sounds like a pretty good alternative to me.
