Hey, what's up? You know who it is. It's Chris. And today, we're going to be learning how to draw a realistic elephant. So, let's begin. The first thing we're going to do is, we're going to start with the head. So, we're going to come down, and we're going to bring the trunk down, like so. Then, we're going to follow that same line and bring that back up, and that will go into the head. We'll bring the head around this way, and then this will go out into the ear. And, we'll bring this line down. And, this will be the elephant's eye. That will be the other eye. We'll draw some lines here, and the tusks will come out. We'll do a line, and we'll go that way. Now, the rest of the elephant, we'll come around, and we'll go like this. And, here's that little tiny tail, and go back up. This line will be for the body, and the front legs will come down. Here's a toe, here's a toe, and there's a toe for one. Here's the other back leg, with a toe there, toe there, and a toe there, and there. And, that same back leg will be that way. And, we'll bring this down, and the front leg will go here. Same deal. And, there's a toe. We'll do a little line there for the shadowing. Little line here. Take a thicker marker, go like this, add a little shadowing to it. Catch up under the belly, and trace around the outside of the ear. Go over the toes, fill those in. Some lines, because the elephants are all wrinkly and stuff, you know that. And there, you have it. I'm Chris, and this is how you draw a realistic elephant.
