A big tutorial on how to draw an elephant for a huge animal that deserves all the attention! It is quite easy to draw an elephant and make sure that the result is perfect: simple draw a large body, large ears and a trunk and that's it! Is it? Yes and no.
In this lesson, I will show you how to draw a cute character using simple shapes in only six easy steps. The selected template shows a front version of this adorable animal. Ready to draw? Let's begin this lesson now! :)
First, draw a large circular shape to represent the head. On the bottom of this shape, you can draw a large trunk using curved lines. Simply look at the illustration below to see how this first step should be made.
Cool! Draw a second round shape just below the head. This new element must be slightly larger and longer. On the bottom, you can draw two more rectangles to illustrate the front legs of the elephant.
The ears are created from long curved lines like shown on the image below. The back legs are also made from large rectangles and the tail is drawn from a small triangle.
The eyes and the pupils are made from circular shapes. As you can see in the fourth step below, pupils are slightly closer to each other. It's a good technique to give a more appealing look to the cartoon animal.
Good! Complete this cartoon elephant by adding a long curved line inside each ear. You can also add small oval shapes inside the feet and draw two more oval shapes inside the pupils. :)
Nicely done! The black and white version below can help you see all elements of this cartoon elephant in one single illustration.
