How to Draw Boots the Monkey from Dora the Explorer Drawing Tutorial
First, start out by drawing the basic shapes that make up Boots the Monkey’s face … an oval and rectangle.
Now draw ears on the monkey’s head by draw a letter ‘c’ on the left side of the head and a backwards letter ‘c’ on the right side…notice the position of the ears.
Now within each ear draw a smaller ear-like shape.
Now lets draw Boots’ eyes. Draw 2 circles for eyes … the right eye being a touch bigger than the one on the left. Draw them on top of the oval that you drew in step #1.
Now draw a small circle inside both of Boots’ eyes (for pupils and irises). Fill in each of these circles except for a smaller circle (for the highlight).
Now draw 2 upside down letter ‘u’s (filled in) for nostrils…each of them are slanted a bit outwards. Draw this a bit under the top of the oval…in between both eyes, but slightly closer to the right eye.
