How to Draw an Elephant

Learn how to draw an elephant for kids, with my easy step by step tutorial. The shapes are simple, yet still create a pretty realistic looking animal.

There’s also a bit of a perspective lesson in that the two legs that are furthest away need to be just a bit shorter than the front ones. A small detail, but important one if you want to learn how to make animals look as realistic as possible.

Students that want to take things one step further, can add a bit of shadow to their elephant. Just decide if a source of light (the sun) is on the left or the right, and then darken those opposite sides accordingly. (Or just copy my sample, whatever works for you.)
