Today I’ll be showing you how to draw an elephant for kids, easy in just a few simple steps! Elephants are one of my all-time favorite animals, and drawing a cute one is much simpler than you might think. So get your pencils ready, and let’s learn how to draw an elephant!
To get our elephant started, we will first need to draw a large “S” shaped line which will be the outline of the elephant’s trunk and head.
Next, draw the bottom curved line of the elephant’s trunk
Next, draw the elephant’s large oval shaped ear in the empty space between the trunk and the top of the head.
Starting at the elephant’s ear, draw a long curved line pointing down toward the ground. This will be the elephant’s back.
Next, draw a “W” shape for the elephant’s two rear feet.
Draw a “U” shape above the elephant’s feet for his large, round belly.
Next, draw the elephant’s front two legs in the same shape as the elephant’s rear two legs.
Next we need to draw a line connecting the front legs to the trunk, and a tiny curved line for the elephant’s smile.
Next we need to draw the elephant’s small, round eye sitting close to its ear, with a small round pupil inside.
Next, draw two lines sticking out from behind the elephant for its short tail.
At the end of the elephant’s tail, draw a teardrop shape to create the tiny tuft of hair.
All that’s left to do now is to give our elephant a little color. Of course, elephants are usually grey, but feel free to get creative and make your elephant even more colorful!
