Yes, he’s a monster, and yes, he’s attacking a city, but he’s really cute and we’re sure it’s all a big misunderstanding of some kind. So don’t get upset...just draw along!

First, we're going to take a pencil and rough in some buildings for our monster to smash! SMASH! CRASH! BOOM! Feel free to add your house into the drawing. We wouldn't want to leave it out of the mayhem.
Next, use your pencil to add in the shape of the MONSTER! I'm going for a Godzilla-inspired dinosaur guy, so he looks like the butt of an eggplant. ROAR!
Now, our monster will need a GAPING MAW WITH WHICH TO EAT YOUR HAMS, RAR! And little arms that flail about! And eyes!
No monster is complete without sharp teeth and stylish fins on his back! Let's add some details to those buildings, too!
Next, use a black pen to go over your pencil drawing, then erase your pencil lines! Does your monster look fierce? Would he look more fierce breathing fire? Wearing a cowboy hat? You decide!
Lastly, get out your markers or crayons and add some COLOR! I like the classic green and orange combo, but I think he'd look menacing with pink polka dots, too!
