Please PAUSE the "How to Draw an Elephant" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a big oval as a guide for the elephant's body.
Step 2: Draw a circle next to the oval as a guide for the elephant's head.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the elephant's head to help you place the facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a long curved line next to the elephant's head as a guide for the trunk.
Step 5: Draw another curved line from the bottom of the head that intersects with the trunk as a guide for the elephant's tusk.
