Time Needed: 20 minutes
Draw The Face
Begin by making circular shapes for the head, ears, and eyes. Draw the nose and mouth as well.
Add Hair And Hat
Then, add the elf hat and the hair. I will draw this tiny elf young looking with a floppy hat.
Draw The Collar
After that, add the elf’s collar with zigzag lines.
Add The Hands
Now, draw the elf’s hands. Let’s keep things simple.
