Step 6: Draw a series of curved lines that connects the major shapes to form the chimpanzee's body.
Step 7: Draw two lines under the front part of the body as guides for the chimpanzee's arms. Draw a small oval at the end of each line as guides for the hands.
Step 8: Draw two more lines on the left side of the body as a guide for the chimpanzee's legs. Bend the lines to indicate the joints in the leg and add small ovals at the ends of the lines as the guides for the chimpanzee's feet.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 9: Draw the chimpanzee's eyes inside the head by using the lines as guides for placement. Darken the lines so that the resulting shapes are similar to little footballs. Draw a couple of lines inside the shape to indicate the actual eyeball. Shade the inside of the eye except for a tiny circle to represent glare. Use a darker value inside the eye for the pupil. Add a few lines around the chimp's eye for detail. Chimpanzees have many wrinkles around their eyes, so draw plenty of lines surrounding them. The wrinkles should follow the basic curvature of the eyes.
