Description: Having lessons on drawing cartoons wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t have a tutorial on “how to draw a cartoon elephant", step by step. Now because I have been so addicted to doing cartoon lessons, I wanted to draw an animal that is well loved and has been around for millions of years even if they looked a bit different. The elephant is probably one of the first cartoon animals that children and older kids would try and attempt to draw. I know when I was like eleven, drawing a cartoon elephant wasn’t easy at all. Back then I didn’t know that there was places that could teach me how to draw any cartoon animal I wanted. All my drawing experience comes from within me. I may have referenced pictures, but all in all every drawing I have ever drawn was always done by eye. I never took or looked at lessons from knowledgeable people, which is probably why it took so long for me to get better at drawing. The best thing for all you starting artists out there to do is learn from others that already know what to do. This way here you will spare yourself all the struggling trying to pinpoint what goes where and all that nonsense. This tutorial will be very fun and easy, and when you are done you will know “how to draw a cartoon elephant” step by step. I am down to one more tutorial and I am saddened to say that I will be uploading that one tomorrow. I am tired so I think I am going to crash on the couch to some boring TV show. I will be back tomorrow folks with more drawing fun. Peace out everyone!
