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. 🙂
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.
You can try a more complex version of a cartoon elephant if you are already comfortable with this one. Practice as much as needed and enjoy these tutorials! 🙂
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.
Then, draw the ear and the trunk. Complete your drawing by adding the eyes, the tail and the nails. Et voilà! A simple elephant using simple shapes!
