In this art tutorial I explain, using a simple step by step approach how to draw an African elephant in easy to follow simple stages.We start with just a few oval shapes drawn very lightly and progress to an outline. I teach you how to make the outline suggest the elephant’s wrinkled skin, before explaining how to add light , shade and tone to the drawing to make the elephant look three dimensional. I finish the drawing by explaining how to get rid of the outline to create an edge around the elephant, which makes the animal look more realistic.
This tutorial is aimed at beginners to drawing, including children, and those wishing to develop their drawing further.
