How to Draw a Gorilla

The gorilla is a large mammal that resembles humans closely. The deep-set eyes, broad chest and shoulders and the slightly upright gait make it a unique animal to draw. Its body is mostly covered in a thick coat of hair that is generally black. So you know what color to put on it once you are done with the sketch.

Step 1: Draw a few ovals that will act as guides for the head and limbs.
