STEP 1. Start this step by drawing a circle for the head and then draw out the guidelines for the antlers, and the bridge of the nose. Next draw out the shape of the elk's neck and then attach those lines to the torso shape which is also a bigger circle. Draw another circle for the butt end of the elk and then add four limb lines for the legs.   STEP 2. You will start this step by sketching out the shape of the elks nose and or muzzle. Next draw the lining for the mouth and chest which is very hairy. You will than end this step by drawing out the shape for the elk's eye.   STEP 3. Now since these animals have enormous antlers, you must sketch out the antlers of this elk neatly to convey their size. Once that is done you can then draw out the shape of the ears and add a shaded in eye. Detail the bridge of the nose and then add the nose tip line. Detail more of the elks chest as you see here.   STEP 4. You will only have to draw the line for the elk's back and then start sketching out the two front legs and hooves of the elk. Add the hint of hair over the hooves a bit and then move to the next step.   STEP 5. Finish off the front legs and then sketch out the long haired belly as you see here. These animals have a lot more hair on their coats then their cousins the deer. Once the belly is sketched out you can then start drawing out one of the hind legs.   STEP 6. For your last drawing step, draw out the other hind leg and hoof and then sketch in a small puff tail. Add some minor detailing and definition to the thigh and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 7. Your lesson on "how to draw an elk step by step" is now finished. Your drawing should have come out looking similar to the elk you see here. Color it in and your all done. Good job everyone.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
