Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Spider Monkey" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the spider monkey's body. They should be about the same size, and their edges should touch. The circle on the right should be placed a bit lower.
Step 2: Draw a slightly smaller circle on the top left side as a guide for the spider monkey's head. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides.
Step 3: Draw two curved, intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the spider monkey's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a series of lines that connect the circles to form the rest of the spider monkey's body.
Step 5: Draw two long lines at the front of the body as guides for the spider monkey's arms.
