How to draw an elephant

Learn how to draw a big elephant of your very own.


You will need:
- Pencil
- Pen
- Eraser
- Paper
- Colored pencils or crayons
- Ruler (suggested)


Jeff's Tips & Ideas : Use lightly sketched pencil lines first for the structure. After, use a pen to draw in the final lines. When you're finished, erase the underlying pencil lines to reveal your drawing. Then - color it!

 


Let's start! Follow step by step our easy indications below !

 

STEP 1

 

Draw a simple framework, composed of basic shapes. Be sure to keep your penciled lines nice and light.  Later, you can go over your structure with a dark, permanent pen or marker. The penciled lines will easily erase with a kneaded eraser when you're finished. The centerline down the middle will be helpful in keeping things balanced and symmetrical as you progress.
