I am looking into a little study of Mammoths. They’re elephants with lots of hair and, therefore, have such great potential for fun, characterful illustrations!

This quick, rough sketch is a starting point for, hopefully, some more developed sketches later on. To get to this point, I initially did finer sketches concentrating on the physical form of the animal. Then I slowly exaggerated certain features… The high shoulders, the low hips/hindquarters, the trunk and, of course, lots of that hair! I think he’s got quite a charming yet unkempt air!
