Here’s a fun way to learn how to draw an easy Gorilla. A simple step by step tutorial makes it fun for all ages.
Here is some fascinating information about gorillas, according to the World Wildlife Organization.
“Gorillas are gentle giants and display many human-like behaviors and emotions, such as laughter and sadness. In fact, gorillas share 98.3% of their genetic code with humans, making them our closest cousins after chimpanzees and bonobos. The largest of the great apes, gorillas are stocky animals with broad chests and shoulders, large, human-like hands, and small eyes set into hairless faces.”
Younger students that are fans of or are learning about gorillas, may struggle a bit with drawing all their features. Gorilla bodies are much different than that of a monkey and may take more time to learn. No worries though, just focusing on their amazing faces keeps things super easy, and nothing is lost of their distinctive look.
