How to Draw Gonks with Colouring Pencils

Learn how to draw Gonks with Simply Colouring Pencils by using this step-by-step guide created by Daler-Rowney artist Amylee Paris, and is easy for beginners to follow and explore using colouring pencils!

Step 1

Drawing Outlines

Using the black fine liner, draw a fabulous gonk. You can reproduce the design from this tutorial or create another one.

Step 2

Orange Sections

Use the orange coloured pencil to colour all the parts following the demonstration. For a nice effect, you can colour in circles next to each other.

Step 3

Blue and Yellow Sections

Using the yellow and blue coloured pencils to fill in the remaining parts of the gonk's clothing. The bell at the end of his cap is also yellow!

Step 4

The Gonk’s beard

Next, take the oil pastel sticks to continue the drawing. At the ends of the beard and moustache apply black oil pastel and then come over with white oil pastel to create a hairy effect!

Step 5

The Gonk's Skin

Use the red pencil to colour the skin. With a gradient effect on the nose and fingers, you give a more natural look!

Step 6

The Green Parts

Still using the coloured pencils, take 2 green pencils to complete the drawing.

Step 7

Finishing touches

For a more graphic effect, you can draw spirals instead of ordinary colouring!
Et voilà, it’s done. Doesn't he have a nice face, this cute little gonk?
