Hiya! Welcome to my How to Draw Cartoon Elephants tutorial. I'm Matilda, your cartoon drawing sidekick and I'll be showing you the steps to draw your very own adorable elephant!
If you feel lost at this step, browse around the web and look for reference pictures. Trust me, looking at the real thing helps. =)
Eg: A Cute toy-like Cartoon Elephant with one ear flopped downwards.
The horizontal line of the cross is used to indicate eye position. If you'd like your elephants' eyes to be higher, go for a higher line.
The right ear will be a tad bit smaller then the left since I'm folding it down.
The leg at the back is slightly angled to make it look like it's walking.
Great work on reaching the last step of this tutorial! All you have to do is to add in a couple of details. Here's an example of what you can do:

The great thing about Cartoons is how flexible it can be! You can create a very toy-like elephant, or a more realistic looking one. The possibilities are endless.
Remember to always look for reference pictures, experiment, and practise! Take a look at the slightly realistic cartoon elephant below. =)
So there you have it. Adorable Cartoon Elephants that can even make guys squeal.
(No, Really.) You can even add in a small yellow cap at the top and you get Dumbo! (the Elephant, I'm not saying someone's dumb!)
