Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw a monkey on vines. So the first thing you would do is work on the vine, just kind of a nice squiggly line, maybe double it up, add another piece that sort of runs parallel to give the vine a little thickness. You can add some lines to the vine if you want and then put our leaves on the vine and we can put leaves really anywhere we like, like just little bunches of leaves coming off of the vine there and then we're going to move right on to our monkey. So the first thing you're going to do is just draw a hand, just kind of a monkey paw that's hanging on to this vine. He has his little monkey head here and his little monkey ears and a big front piece where his mouth is going to go. Yeah, our monkey is very happy, having a lot of fun swinging and then he has another arm that's going to go in kind of an S shape and just continue down. So this is just going to hang down. There's the little monkey belly and he's got this happy little belly here and then he's got these legs that are just kind of hanging in the breeze and he has kind of feet almost like hands. So, they've got, you know, they're kind of long there and then the other one is also just hanging, he's just hanging on the vine, swinging and having a good old time. And that is how you draw a monkey on vines.
