Now that your supplies are ready, let’s create the outline of your Elk. Start by sketching the head; get a feel of the Elk’s majestic features. The size of the head and body should be about the same. The chin’s curve should match the curvature of the Elks large neck, and the limbs should look like a bundle of strong sturdy sticks.
Add some of the majestic details. The Elk’s majestic antlers should have a wide base and be swept backward. Their ears should have a rounded, almost heart shape. Make sure to include the Elk’s long and detailed eyelashes. Add the wild and beautiful fur of the Elk and the majestic stripes of its motion.
Now repeat the same process with the rest of the body. Make sure to draw the long legs in the same way. The legs should look like they can support all of the majestic animal’s weight. Pay attention to the tail, as well. Add a little curve at the end and make sure the Elk can easily turn its head to look back.
Fill in the details. Draw the Elk’s fur with a brush. Make sure to add extra details to make the fur look more realistic. Add the fine details of the Elk’s majestic antlers. Draw its round eyes and nostrils. Add each individual hair on its body.
Finish the drawing by adding more color. Use the watercolors to bring out the vivid picture. Add warmth and give it more texture. At the same time, add contrast to accentuate the Elk’s majestic look. Make sure to include the subtle gradient of color that is present in the wild.

Now it’s time to kick your drawing up a notch. Try sketching the Elk in motion. Make sure to use quick and smooth strokes to create the necessary motion. For example, draw the legs in mid-stride and add more stress to the Elk’s muscles for a more dynamic look.
To make the Elk’s fur truly come alive, use a steady line and dark shading. Create smooth transitions from one shade to another to appreciate the movement of the fur when it’s in the wind. Add depth with the shadows and highlights of light.
