Start by drawing an oval or a circle. This will form the elephant’s head.
Stretch a long and 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 – chin and cheek.
Draw the hose by extending a pair of curves from the center of the face. Attach them to 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 curves.
Erase the guides from the elephant’s face.
Use the curves to outline the elephant’s ear. Pay attention to the pointy tip. Then draw a slightly smaller shape inside each ear, parallel to the original outline. Draw a few curves 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 curve and surround an oval above it. Then, draw a circle containing a smaller circle and a small oval. Shade the smaller circle to form the pupils. Finally, paint a curl over each eye to indicate the eyebrows.
Draw the forelegs using overlapping “U”-shaped lines. Then, use small “U” shaped lines to wrap around the toenails.
Use the curves to outline the elephant’s shoulders and hind legs. Paste an oval at the bottom of each foot and use small “U” lines to indicate the toenails. Draw a spiral on each knee.
Draw a pair of lines to form the elephant’s tail. At its end, widens the curves and allows them to meet at some jagged point. This forms buns at the ends of the tail.
Color your cute baby elephant. Elephants are usually gray or brown. Circus elephants are sometimes painted white or other colors.
