You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing an oval or circle. This will form the head of the elephant.
Extend a long, curved line from one side of the oval. Allow it to move below the oval and attach to it on the opposite side. This outlines the lower half of the elephant’s face – the chin and cheeks.
Draw the trunk by extending a pair of curved lines from the center of the face. Wrap them at the end with an egg shape. Draw two small ovals inside the egg shape to form the nostrils and detail the top of the trunk using horizontal curved lines.
Erase the guide lines from the elephant’s face.
Use curved lines to outline the elephant’s ears. Notice the pointed tip. Then draw a slightly smaller shape inside each ear, parallel to the original outline. Draw a few curved lines extending from the top.
Detail of the elephant’s face. Draw a few short, curved lines at the top of the head to form a bun. For each eye, draw a horizontal curved line and enclose an oval above it. Then draw a circle containing a smaller circle and a small oval. Shade the smaller circle to form the pupil. Finally, paint a curved shape over each eye to indicate the eyebrows.
Draw the front pins using overlapping “U” shaped lines. Then, use small “U” shaped lines to wrap the toenails.
Use curved lines to outline the elephant’s shoulders and hind legs. Wrap an oval at the bottom of each foot and use small “U” shaped lines to indicate the toenail. Draw a spiral on each knee.
Draw a pair of lines to form the tail of the elephant. At the top of it, widen the curves and allow them to meet at some jagged point. This forms the bun at the tip of the tail.
Color your cute baby elephant. Elephants are usually gray or brown in color. The elephants in the circus are sometimes painted white or other colors.
