How to Draw Jungle Animals (in my style)

  • Pen (today I used Graphik 0.1) or pencil
  • Paper/card
  • Scissors

Optional…

  • Cardboard
  • String
  • Tape/blu tac

Doodle #1

Cedric the Sloth

This big lazy ball of friendliness couldn’t look less scary!…

To start this doodle, draw a spikey/fluffy rounded head at a bit of an angle.

img_7312img_7314img_7315

Then draw down a long arm with three little claws at the end, and a short line on the other shoulder going upwards.

img_7316

Now draw a long slanted line going down just above his head (this is the tree branch) and a little hand popping up behind the branch. πŸ™‚

img_7317

Add the top line of the tree branch!

img_7318

Next you want to draw quite a rounded shape along his back and a leg going up and wrapping around the branch.

img_7319

Then draw a jagged line joining up the arm and the leg.

img_7320

And now draw a circle within his head close to the edges, but don’t make a full circle – leave a gap where his neck is!

img_7321

Add on the sleep eyes (U shapes), two little dots for nostrils, and a wide smile so he looks all sleepy! πŸ˜‰

img_7322

To finish adding details, draw tiny spikes (V shapes) all over his fur so it looks more spikey and fluffy!

img_7323img_7324

This is the optional stage – you can use scissors to carefully cut around Cedric, leaving a mm or two border. ❀

img_7325

img_7327

Zoomed in – your sloth should look something like this!…

img_7328

Doodle #2

Terry Toucan

This guy’s beak looks a bit big for him…but it makes him all the more loveable! ❀

First, draw a square/round head and a curved line going down.

img_7329img_7330

Then add another line curving slightly the other way as his tummy!

img_7331

Draw on his beak! Make a long horizontal line, that then curves down to a spike. Also add a line underneath the beak.

img_7332

For the patterns on the beak, I did an arrow sort of shape, and two lines either side.

You can also draw a little eye!

img_7333

Next you can add a tummy and some little feet at the front of the base.

img_7334

Then cut out carefully with the scissors!

Terry is finished!

img_7335img_7336img_7337

Doodle #3

Mrs Monkey

This little monkey looks cute, especially hung up by string because it looks like she is swinging! ^-^

Draw a little round head with two tiny ears, the head should be slightly slanted.

img_7338img_7339

Then add a long arm reaching up, with a fist on top and another long arm hanging down. πŸ™‚

img_7340

Next you can draw on some dangly legs.

img_7341

Add two little eyes, a big oval nose beneath them and a circle tummy!

img_7342img_7343

I also added a cheeky banana to his hand…

img_7344

Cut carefully around as before, leaving a tiny border!

img_7345img_7346img_7347

Doodle #4

Teeny Lizard

He’s just so tiny! With his little three fingers and his little smile!

To start off, draw a diagonal oval head, and two front arms with sets of three fingers.

img_7348img_7349img_7350

Then you want to draw lines from both arms diagonally down, then add two more arms with sets of three fingers like before!

img_7351

Now add a wiggly tail.

img_7352

Then two little eyes, two nostrils andΒ  a mouth…

img_7353

You can put some spots on his back for detail if you wish!

img_7354

Then, like before, cut it out (if you want to!)

img_7355img_7356img_7357

Doodle #5

Paul the Parrot

I like this little guy a lot, and if you coloured him in in reds and blues and yellows – I’m sure he’d look even more fabulous! :0

Firstly, draw a small round head and a slightly curved line going down (this its back).

img_7358img_7359

Next, draw a rounded tummy down the front.

img_7360

Then you are going to want to draw its tail feathers on, by drawing a bumpy line down and up again…(see picture below!)

img_7361

To draw the feathers on the wing and tail, you draw little U shapes overlapping. Do this very small and on several layers. πŸ™‚

img_7362img_7363

Finally to finish the drawing, you simply draw two lines as the tree branch, and a little foot, as well as an upside down U shape for a ‘happy eye’!

img_7364

If you want it cut out, go ahead with the scissors leaving a border like before.

img_7365img_7366

Zoomed in…all done!

img_7367

Doodle #6

Hippopotamus!

This big happy hippo is a great addition to the jungle!

Start off by drawing the hippo’s head-a shape that gets smaller as it goes down, but look at the picture if you are not sure what I mean…

img_7368img_7369

Then draw two tiny ears on his head, and two legs and a tummy. Also add two legs behind the first two.

img_7370

Now join up the back legs with the neck by making a big arc clockwise all the way round.

img_7371

Then you can also draw a little spike tail, some big toenails, an eye and two little nostrils at the front of his nose!

img_7372

For the last details, draw a little shine on his back (a curved line) and a smile at the bottom of his chin. πŸ™‚

img_7373

Use scissors to cut out carefully once again…

img_7374img_7375img_7376

Doodle #7

Pinky the Flamingo

Although you may not think Pinky really fits in to the jungle theme, all his jungly friends think he does!…

First, draw a tall backwards ‘S’ shape.

img_7378img_7379

Then carry on from the backwards ‘S’ shape, to an arc and a little flick for his tail!

img_7380

Then join up the tail to his head.

img_7381

Next you can draw on his skinny legs. Do this by drawing a straight line down with a knobbly knee, and then another line very close to it. Then you can also draw the second leg going backwards then forward, so it is lifted up. πŸ™‚

img_7382

Also don’t forget to add a small beak, and little triangle feet on the end of his legs!

img_7383

For some little details, add a big winf=g on the body and you can also add sideways ‘v’ shapes on it.

I also drew a tiny eye on his head.

img_7384

Then cut around him carefully leaving a border of a mm or two…

img_7385img_7386

You can also shade in his beak in pen if you like! ❀

img_7387


Well that’s all the animals drawn! I also had a bit of an idea of hanging them up by string to make a sort of mobile, or just as decoration in your room! If you have time, glue them down to cardboard and cut around them again for an even more polished look!

So you can have a look what they look like hung up from string and blu tac…quite cool i you ask me!

img_7396img_7397

And here is all of my new Jungle friends together!

img_7389img_7394img_7395

I really hope you guys like these new doodles, let me know which is your favourite out of them! (I love them all I couldn’t choose!) πŸ˜‰

img_7390img_7391img_7393

As you can tell I love doodling, so if you want another one of these posts with a different theme, I might do that! Yay! ❀

Jungle hugs,
