Hi. My name's Jessica and I'm an artist. And today we're going to draw an elk step-by-step. So, the first thing you want to do is do the body. Just a nice big circle like that and a little bit of a smaller circle for the hind part of the elk. And then we've got the neck, we've got a circle for the head. We've got a couple of legs that come down, like so. And a little piece for the, where the nose is going to go. This is your outline of your elk. Next you're going to go in and you're going to start to connect some of these pieces. You're going to connect this hind area here, bring it down, connect the underbelly, go back up in to the face area. Bring the nose down a little. Put a little bit of a kind of a rounded nose area. And don't forget, he also has these very big kind of elk horns. So, just like a nice long sort of, couple of lines here. You can thicken them back up when you go back in. You can do that on each side. So, and then go back in, thicken up the legs a little bit on each side. And add an eye on top of the head there. Little nose and then basically just go back in, do a little bit of layering, add the white fluff that's on the front of the elk. Maybe put a little bit of an underbelly, because they have a little tiny little tail. They have these hooves that come out like so. And then you can start to go in and take out some of those lines. I always encourage drawing with a pencil or an erasable pen, so you can go back in and clean things up after you've put a couple finishing touches on. And then you don't have to have a mess. And there you go. That is how you draw an elk, step-by-step.
