How to Draw Donkey Kong
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Nintendo's Donkey Kong. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Nintendo's Donkey Kong with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Donkey Kong, start with a circle on the top right part of the paper. Inside the circle, draw a curved vertical line on the right side that contours to the shape of the circle. You don't have to draw the circle perfectly. It's just a basic shape for Donkey Kong's head.
Step 2: Below the first circle, draw a slightly smaller circle and draw a line inside as well. This time, make the line horizontal and draw it more toward the bottom. Don't forget to bend the line to contour the circle. This is the basic shape for Donkey Kong's mouth.
Step 3: Sketch in Donkey Kong's eyes by drawing two small ovals on top of the lower circle. Draw them on either side of the top circle's vertical line. The right oval should be smaller because of the perspective. For Donkey Kong's ear, draw an arc to the left of the bigger circle that is similar to the letter C. Draw it so the bottom of the C shape is a little below the level of the eyes.
Step 4: Draw a circle smaller than Donkey Kong's head right next to his ear and a diagonal line underneath it. At the end of the diagonal line, draw a circle similar in size to the top one. This will be the left arm of this video game character.
Step 5: From the bottom of Donkey Kong's mouth, draw another diagonal line almost parallel to the first and another circle at the end of it. This is a guide for the right arm.
