Hi guys, Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a very basic elf head. So basically what we are going to do is we are going to start off with the face. And you are going to just kind of draw almost an oval here just like that. And now we've got the eyes which are going to be in the middle here. So maybe do just a couple little arcs there. And a couple of arcs underneath. And then maybe he's got like some crazy eyebrows that kind of go up like that. So you can do you pretty much do whatever you want. I mean he's an elf so he's kind of like a mythical character so you can kind of be as creative as you'd like. Got some eyes there. A little bit of a nose. And he's a happy elf so you are going to draw maybe a little bit of a smirk kind of like a little bit of a squiggly smirk there. Now maybe give him a little bit of a rosy cheeks. And maybe he has like a hat. So I'm going to use the green here. And kind of just go in an arc on the side and imagine that that's on top of his head. So I'm going to do a very pointed hat cause elves always have very pointy hats. Almost like a birthday hat but I want to make it green. It's very kind of like a go with nature. Alright and now we've got the most important part which are the ears. And for the ears you are just going to want to on the side and then just make them to a point going with the same kind of way as the hat. And then bring them down and then kind of arc at the bottom. And the same thing on the other side. I'm going to do pointy ears and then bring it down as an arc on the bottom. And then you can just kind of draw a couple of little like squiggley lines just to show the inside of the ear there if you want. And then for the neck you can just bring two lines down going like that. A little arc at the bottom. Maybe he's got a green shirt on. You just kind of fill that in a little bit. And then maybe he's got some orange hair. So you can just kind of like make a little bit of hair coming out like it's coming out from underneath the cap a little bit. And behind the ears. And there you go guys, your basic elf head.
