Step by step guide for the elephant drawing
The given guidelines for animal drawing are easy to understand. Just follow these steps and complete your drawing process.
Elephant Drawing Step 1
Firstly, set your drawing paper and drawing tools. Start drawing using a Prisma black marker. Draw a big circle as the outline of an elephant’s face. You don’t need to draw an actual circle. Just draw the circle using freehand. Trace a curve as the outline of the trunk of the elephant.
Now draw the other curved line for this trunk. Both ends of the trunk are wide. Close one edge of the trunk using an oval shape. Trace two circles for the eyes of the elephant. Both circles must be of equal size. Follow the given picture above.
Elephant Drawing Step 2
In the second step of the drawing of a cute elephant, give more details to the eyes of the elephant. Draw two small circles in the inner side of the eyes. Trace a curve to the bottom of the eye lens. Divide this curve into many parts through vertical lines. Now shade the upper portion of the eye lens. Leave the inner circles without shading. This creates a shine and highlights in the eye of the elephant.
In the same way, draw the other eye. Add details to the trunk and draw some curves over its surface. Draw eyebrows and eyelashes using curved lines. Trace a smile of the elephant. Observe it from the given picture.
Elephant Drawing Step 3
In the third step of drawing an animal, draw the ears of the elephant. First, draw the left ear of the elephant. Using a curve and somehow “v” shape, complete the drawing of the ear. At the same point and having an equal size, draw the other ear of the elephant. This ear is hidden in the back of the trunk.
Trace three small hairs on the top of the head. Draw the lower body of the elephant. Using two vertical parallel lines, start drawing the front hands of the elephant. Draw a “v” shape in the center of the vertical lines. Join the bottom point of “V” with the vertical lines from both sides. See the progress of drawing from the picture above.
Elephant Drawing Step 4
In the fourth step, draw the nails of the hands using some curves. Trace some wrinkles on the belly of the elephant. To draw the back legs, draw a circle to the right side of the elephant.
Then draw another circle on the left side. Both these circles indicate the lower side of the right and left paw of the elephant. Join these paws with the body using curved lines. These curves also show the back legs. Follow the given picture above.
Elephant Drawing Step 5
In this step, complete the drawing of an elephant by adding some more things. Draw the nails of the back paws. Create a surrounding for the elephant. Draw some grass around it. Trace a heart shape to the body of the elephant.
Elephant Drawing Step 6
In the last and final step, give colors to an elephant drawing. Use grey color for the body of the elephant. Give a light shade of blue to the eyes of this animal. Fill red color to the heart shape that is on the body of the elephant. For the lower surface and the grass, use pale green color. See the final look from the given picture above.
