How To Draw Cookie Monster easy with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Drawing lessons for kids and everyone.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
For the first step of our Cookie Monster drawing tutorial, we’ll start with his head and face. You can start this by drawing two small circles next to each other.
You can then add an even smaller circle inside each circle for his pupils. Then we will use some sharp and curved lines for the contour of his head to make it look nice and hairy.
Once you’ve finished drawing this outline, you can add some lines below it for the end of his head. Then, stretch the contour down and out from the base of the head to the top of the shoulders.
Finally, we will draw his mouth. Draw one of the other hairy lines for the top of his smiley mouth, and then add a smooth curve below it.
Step 2 – Next, start drawing his first arm
As suggested by its name, Cookie Monster loves cookies! For that reason, no Cookie Monster drawing is complete without a cookie for him to enjoy.
First, we’ll use some more of the feathers you used for the outline to draw his hand near the base of his head.
This hand will then hold a cookie that you can draw with a bumpy line. Don’t forget to add some chocolate chips to it!
Step 3 – Draw his second arm in this step
You’ve already started part of this tutorial on how to draw Cookie Monster, and in this third step we’ll add the rest.
This arm will extend from the base of the right shoulder and you can use the same rope you’ve used so far to continue the furry effect.
This arm will curl up for him to point at the cookie he’s about to enjoy! Once you’ve drawn this arm as it appears in our reference image, you’ll be ready for the next step.
Step 4 – Now draw the body for Cookie Monster
In this part of your Cookie Monster drawing, we’ll start drawing his body to get you ready for the final details in the next step.
For the rest of this drawing, we’ll use that feather line again. With that in mind, draw two rounded edges of his belly.
The first of these will extend down from the base of the right arm. It will also start leading into his leg on the right.
His left abdomen will extend from near the left arm and will also be quite round.
Once the belly has been drawn, you can fill in the space between the belly and the arm to complete the arm holding the cookie.
Then we’ll move on to the final details in the next step!
Step 5 – Complete your Cookie Monster drawing
Our step on how to draw Cookie Monster will perfect his sketch to get you ready for some coloring fun!
The main focus of this fifth step will be on finishing the leg contour. His legs are quite short and quite large. The left leg will be raised slightly for a more dynamic pose. Due to the angle of this leg, we will also draw the bottom of his foot.
Then we will draw for the second leg, and this is the one where he will actually stand. Once you’ve drawn both of these legs, you can also add some details of your own to complete it nicely.
Sesame Street is full of colorful characters, so maybe you could make a wallpaper that has some of them!
This is just an idea, but what else can you think of for this picture?
Step 6 – Complete your Cookie Monster drawing with some colors
In this final step we will color in this Cookie Monster drawing to complete it nicely. Cookie Monster has a lovely blue color scheme and this is what we did in our reference image.
Instead of just one solid blue, we’ve incorporated a variety of shades to help give him a more aggressive look.
Will you stick with this classic color scheme or will you use some unique colors for your own Cookie Monster variation?
Your cookie monster drawing is done!
