Unlike other animals, an elephant's skeleton supports around 16.5% of its total body weight. Here, we provide you with the guidelines to draw the skeleton of an elephant.

Required drawing tools:
1. Pencil
2. Paper/ Canvas
3. Colors (optional)
4. Paint brush (Optional)


We are considering the profile of a sideways standing elephant, facing right.
1. Skull
i. Head
a) Draw a large oval.
b) Make a faint line towards its left bottom to depict ears. Shade the area around the socket appropriately.
c) Impart a dark shade to the upper end of the head.
ii. Jaws
a) Upper jaw: From the bottom right corner of the head, draw a thin rectangle with curved edges.
b) Lower jaw: Draw a 'C' shaped arc starting from the base of the head, going until under the upper jaw.
iii. Tusks: The tusks are elongated, second upper incisors. Draw a long ascending curve extending from the upper jaw. Double it up and shade it to highlight the tusks. a) Teeth: Elephants have approximately 28 teeth. Draw broad rectangular teeth on the lower jaw.
