How to Draw Cookie Monster
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Cookie Monster with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Cookie Monster, start with a wide, slightly tilted oval on the top of the page, and make sure to leave room so you can draw Cookie Monster's body later on. This oval will be the basic shape for Cookie Monster's head, and drawing it tilted will make Cookie Monster have that crazy look he's known for.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line that intersects the oval in half and a horizontal line that is closer to the top of the oval. These will be construction lines that will help you place Cookie Monster's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two circles on top of the oval for Cookie Monster's eyes. The circles should be drawn on either side of the vertical construction line. Below the horizontal line, draw a wide U-shaped curve. This will be Cookie Monster's mouth.
Step 4: Now draw basic shapes for Cookie Monster's body and hands. To draw his body, draw two lines that come down from the bottom of his head. Draw the left line shorter than the right line. Draw Cookie Monster's hands on either side of his body, and make them look like giant upside-down U's.
Step 5: Using the big upside-down U's as guides, draw a series of curves to define his hands a bit more by giving him fingers. Draw three fingers and a thumb on each of Cookie Monster's hands.
