Start by drawing a circle. This will help you draw the elk’s head.
Erase the bottom part of the circle. Use curved lines to draw a trapezoid-like shape, with rounded corners and open top, below the circle. Connect the open ends of the circle to this shape using curved lines. This forms the elk’s muzzle. Draw a circle at the tip of the muzzle to indicate the nose. Draw a curved line through the top of the nose and fill in two teardrop shapes to represent the nostrils. Finally, draw an inverted trapezoid with rounded corners below the muzzle to form the lower jaw.
Erase parts of the top of the head. Draw a curved line through each hole, forming the base of the gauze. Then, use two curved lines around the ears, meeting at a point at the top. Draw a curved line through the top of the ear to create a three-dimensional shape for the ear.
Draw elk antlers. Use a long, curved line to draw the bottom of the antlers. On top, use multiple pairs of curves that meet at points pointing upwards.
Detailed view of the elk’s face. Use curved lines to outline teardrop-shaped eyes. Draw several consecutive smaller circles in each eye. Contour the face by drawing curved lines above the eyes. Next, draw the neck. Extend the curved lines below the head. Connect them using a series of curved lines that meet at jagged points. Draw a second series of lines among the necklines, showing the appearance of feathers.
Start sculpting the elk’s body. Use overlapping curved lines to draw the shoulders, back, hips, and tail. Then use curved lines to draw the back legs, noting the pointed ankles. Enclose the foot or nail with curved lines. Notice the “U” shaped lines at the top that indicate the hoof or split.
Use a curved line to draw the belly. Below, extend two curved lines to form the remaining rear leg. Connect them at the end, then use additional curves to enclose the teardrop-shaped nail.
Use two long and curved lines to draw the front legs. Use circular “V” circles around the bottom of the foot to form the toes. Draw a curved line over the tips of the toes to represent the nail.
Use a series of overlapping curved lines to draw the elk’s chest. Then, use curved lines to draw the remaining front leg, passing behind the front leg. Don’t forget to draw a curved line on the foot to represent the hooves. Finally, draw a series of curved lines that meet at jagged points on the chest to give texture to the fur.
Color your elk cartoon. Nightingales are usually brown or gray, although they can sometimes be white.
