Well this is a lesson that I haven't seen before by anybody on Dragoart including myself. As I was browsing through some of the scenery lessons, I noticed there wasn't any at all on "how to draw a Safari", step by step. Since I love the look of silhouettes, I wanted to make my safari lesson in that form. In the tutorial you will be drawing silhouettes of a mother and baby elephant, a zebra, and of course a giraffe. In the background is a typical savanna tree that you almost always see in safari pictures. I made sure that the tut stayed simple to follow and replicate so have an awesome time and left me know if you liked this lesson. Thanks guys.

Behind the mother elephant you will draw in the baby. As you can see it's much, much smaller but you will tackle this task the same way you did the mother elephant.

For the last drawing step all you have to do to complete this silhouette of a safari is draw in your giraffe. He should be playful looking and eager to run. If you made mistakes you can erase them now.
