Intro: From a Simple Plastic Animal to a Underworld Sugar Skull Creature (Elephant)
Step 1: Start by Painting the Trunk of the Elephant With Gold Acrylic Metallic Paint
Step 2: Then Paint the Rest of the Body With Black Acrylic Paint
Step 3: Then Make a Circle Around the Eyes With Silver Acrylic Paint
Step 4: Then Draw the Teeth and the Jaw Bone
Step 5: Then Draw the Rest of the Elephant Skull
For a stronger effect keep adding layers of paint creating a thick and irregular texture.
Step 6: Now Draw the Ribs
Try to draw organic shapes from small to large. Is always good to look as reference a real elephant skeleton.
Step 7: Then Draw the Bones of the Legs.
Step 8: Then Decorate As You Wish With Red and Yellow Acrilic Paint
I drew a rose on the front of the skull and dots around the eyes. I also glued a fabric flower behind one of the ears.
Step 9: As a Last Step I Painted the Elephant Tusk With Glow in the Dark Reflective Acrylic Paint
And you're all done!
