Everyone has to draw a mammoth once in a while. I think it’s a requirement of being an artist.
To start with I tried several different poses, most of them profile, until I settled on the somewhat dynamic stride with a little sassy side glance.
The lines are a little dominating, so I tried to tone them down by adding texture to them. This is something that I am experimenting with lately. I just select the line layer and then color them with chalk.
While I did most of the drawing in Corel on my desktop, I transferred it to Procreate to do the coloring during lunch.
Hope you like.
