How to Draw a Mammoth

Step 1.

As you can see you will begin this step by making some circles that will all connect on one another. Start with the head shape, and then draw the upper body, and then the coned shaped back end. Lastly, draw the line for the nose or trunk.

Step 2.

You will start this step by sketching out the trunk first, and then move up the trunk until you get the forehead, and dome shaped head drawn out. Since the mammoth is hairy you will need to sketch in some of the hair mainly on top of the head.

Step 3.

Now it's time to sketch out the mammoth's lower lip, and then it's full size hairy cheek and ear. These animals also had humps on their backs or necks so that is the next thing to get sketched out. Once that is done, sketch in the shape of the hairy    

Step 4.

Woolly mammoths had long, curled tusks. You will now proceed to getting those tusks drawn in and be sure that the tips are pointed and thinned out.

Step 5.

You are already almost done with this lesson. Here you will need to sketch out those massively large front legs and feet line you see here. Notice that the legs also have their shoulders showing. Draw in the nails on the feet and move to step six.

Step 6.

Sketch out the back lining, and then draw in the back end as well as the back leg. As you can see you will also need to draw the stomach too and the back toe nails.

Step 7.

For the last step, all you do is draw out the other back leg, and then sketch in the long hair detailing lines like you see here. Erase the shapes and guides you drew in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 8.

Look how awesome your drawing came out on how to draw a woolly mammoth. Now you can color it in.

Description: Okay guys, I have another animal that used to roam the earth back thousands of years ago. They where pretty large, they had long tusks, and they where elephants ancestors before the elephant became a bald herbivore. One of the things that the woolly mammoth was known for is it's large size, hairy bodies, super large ivory tusks, and the ability to live in cold climate weather. There has also been some amazing discoveries that lead to the few Woolly mammoth fossils found in places like Siberia and Alaska. Now because the fossils where found in excellent condition, researchers have learned a lot of information about the beasts that are known to be mammoth in size. There is cave drawings made by early man proving that there was primitive life on earth before our way of life came about. Even though these animals are massive in size, they have been extinct for the past eleven thousand years due to climate changes, and human hunting as man began populating the earth. It is believed that the last known few survivors of woolly mammoth actually died off only three thousand, seven hundred years ago in Siberia's northeastern coast. I have always been a fan of these animals, and I always will be. You should enjoy learning "how to draw a mammoth" because they are such an interesting prehistoric mammal. There is so much more information on the mammoth that you would enjoy learning about if you want. Anyways, that's it folks I will see you again tomorrow.
