To draw the elephants, we first use a pencil to sketch out the following:
Start by drawing a long curved forehead. This line leads directly into a long trunk. There is a short sharp curve at the bottom. The head of the trunk is very narrow. Draw the other side of the trunk line halfway along the line you just drawn.
At the beginning of the line you have just added a curved and pointed tusks. The head of the ivory will extend to the front of the trunk. Draw a small winding line next to the ivory. This is the chin. Next draw a big eye between the top of the head and the tusks.
Extend the back of the head into a straight line back. Start right below the head of the line with a large soft ear. They are round at the top and slightly pointed at the bottom. Make it the same size as the head.
Continue the path back into a big curve at the rump. Draw a line under the ear on a corner down to make the neck line.
At the end of the neck line you have just drawn, start the forefoot very thick. There is a leg below the foot. The foot is as wide as the foot. Draw other lines up to the ear. Continue drawing a line back to make the belly line.
Continue straight to the hind legs. It is the same size as the front leg. Don’t forget the oval toes on the foot.
Start directly below the tip of the ear one more front leg. It is a long straight line down to a wide foot and back up to the neck line. Just behind the hind foot add a hind leg. All you draw is the heel of the second hind leg. Don’t forget to add a thin and short tail. It does not go to the bottom.
Continue to work with the other elephants from different perspectives.
Finally we will highlight the details of the pencil painting.
