Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today, we're going to draw a monkey skull. So, basically, the monkey skull has a top round part, just like that. And you know, the monkey skull actually looks quite a bit like the human skull. But there are some differences, for example, they have very big eye socket areas, very big. And some of them have this kind of point at the top, like that. And then, the nose comes out slightly on the monkey skull, and there's sort of like, kind of a heart shaped nose area. And then, quite large, defined teeth in the skull. So, we'll do like four of them, like that. Maybe one more on the side here, and just one more on the side, here. And then, they come down and out on the sides, apparently, and in. And then, you're going to bring the top piece down, that's going to be the top jaw. And there's a bottom piece which comes around from the bottom, and goes underneath and connects. And that's the bottom part of the jaw. And then, you can color the eyes in black, if you'd like, color the nose in black. Maybe make the teeth a little whiter, make the skull itself, kind of off-white or sort of a yellowish-white. Put a little bit of shading on the sides, around the nose, maybe around the eyes. And that is how you draw a monkey skull.
