Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
First, we will draw three circles. It looks like an inverted snowman. Although the image below is not as large as a typical snowman.
However, we work with elephants. Therefore, we outline a trunk that looks like a smooth curve. We also connect three circular phirugs with short straight lines at the top.
Now we can work with the facial features of our cute animal. Draw a small eye that looks like an inverted triangle. Add contours of ivory and trunk.
We have the almost complete silhouette of the elephant’s head. Now we add the outline of the large triangular ear. The ear should be slightly smaller than the first round body.
You may hear the phrase “elephant foot” as an idiom. In fact, the elephant has huge and powerful legs. In this step, we draw a pair of strong legs that are slightly narrowed.
In this step, we literally add two lines. In this step, we literally add two lines. The top line starts at the nape of the neck and ends at the contour of the tail. The bottom line is shorter. The bottom line connects the front and rear legs of our elephant.
Now we repeat the steps from the fifth stage. Now we are working with the hind legs of an elephant. Don’t forget about the little tail with a brush at the end.
So we have an almost complete picture.
In this step we will add the claws on our elephant’s paws. It is a small detail that forms an overall impression.
Take a look at our full drawing. Let us evaluate the correctness of the forms and proportions. If you don’t see any errors or distortions, you can proceed to the next step.
As in many other drawing tutorials, our final step will be spent working with color. We chose a dark gray color for our elephant. You can use other colors according to your preference.
