Start by drawing two shapes. First, draw a small circle, which will form the basis for the head. Then draw a larger, irregular, similar peanut shape. Notice that the part of this shape near the top is larger than the other side. This shape will help you outline the body.
View neck, head and face details. Connect the head and torso using curved lines, forming the neck. Use a curved line in the circle to detail the shape of the head. Extend this line outside from the circle and duplicate it back into itself so that it forms a rectangle with rounded corners. This is the muzzle of an elk. Then, connect it to the head using another curved line, forming the lower jaw.
Draw the front legs. Use three curved lines to form the legs, one partially hidden by the other. Round the feet and toes using curved lines. Draw a curved line through the front of the foot to indicate the nail.
Draw the hind legs. Again, outline the leg using two curved lines. Note that one line begins at the base of the animal’s back, and the other cuts across the body. Use curved lines around the foot and use an extra line to distinguish the nail.
Draw the far back leg using a pair of curved lines. Loop the leg and mark the nail with another curved line.
Erase the guide lines left by the original shapes, leaving a clear outline of the animal.
Draw the characteristic antlers of the elk. Use a long, curved line for the bottom of the velvet. For the top, curve the line up and down in a wavy pattern. Notice the deep indentation of the velvet near the tip.
Using curved lines, enclose the parts of the distal villi visible above first.
View your moose details. Use a curved line to wrap the beard or burlap. Detail the curves of the neck with additional lines. Shade the eyes and nostrils, and draw a thick, short line above the eyes to represent the eyebrows.
Color your elk. Moose is usually brown in color.
