To start with, doodle monsters can be cute or scary. They can be:

Let's start at the top: monsters can have many eyes or no eyes. They can also have more than one head! What else?

They can have lots of hair or no hair at all.

Big floppy ears, small ears, pointy ears, or no ears!

Rows of sharp teeth, no teeth, or 1 or 2 crooked teeth... or a beak!

How about arms and legs? A monster can have 10 legs or 6 legs or zero legs. He can have 8 arms and she can have 11 arms.

Maybe they don't even have arms - maybe they have wings or fins! And what about a tail?

Monster doodles can have eyes and limbs in unexpected places.

All art begins with ideas.

As you draw, think about all the options we've just covered (how many eyes, legs, where to put them, etc). You have so many options and ideas that you'll probably need to draw a lot of monster doodles to get them all out of your head!

How to draw a doodle monster:

Start with any shape. Any shape at all.

How about an oblong shape - long with rounded edges? That's how we can draw the tall monster to the left!

Follow along by looking at the sketches below to learn how to draw this cute, smiling monster.

1. Draw a long shape with rounded edges.

2. Draw spiky triangle shapes all around the outside edges, to make fur. Leave room at the bottom for legs and feet!

3. Draw his feet.

4. Now draw him a face. I drew two eyes, two eyebrows, a mouth and a pointy tooth that sticks up. You can draw any face you want!

5. When you're done, you can color in your doodle monster in any colors you want.

Ready to draw your next doodle monster? Here we go!

1. Draw a raindrop shape.

2. Give it a face. I gave my raindrop a pretty normal face, with two eyes and a mouth and dimples. You can give your raindrop 6 eyes and a giant nose, if you want!

3. Now draw hands on your raindrop. Draw them wherever you want. I drew mine near the top of the raindrop monster's head!

4. Draw legs and feet for your raindrop monster. I drew 4 legs on mine! (I wonder what he's running away from!)

5. Color it in using your favorite colors, or be bold and use your most un-favorite colors.
