Mammoth by weremagnus Mammoth by weremagnus
Like woah!
This sucker is 40"x16" and took me a few weeks to paint. All the roughness is intended, I didn't want really any tight rendering as I thought it would take away from the energy.

ANYWHO When i started this project I had just watched Walking with Prehistoric Beasts/Walking with Prehistoric Man (The BBC Documentaries) and so I had mammoths in mind. So yeah. But then I've obviously taken some fantastical liberty in terms of scientific accuracy/etc. It was in the end I just had fun experimenting and working on this

The outline basically entailed that we had to draw a procession of sort, figures in motion. So there you go! I might make a wallpaper version of this latah.

i wonder if the guy on the rope is having fun.
You did a fantastic job there!
I guess that your OS must have lagged atleast a bit cause of the size right? I bet it would make a great print for a room. =D

Actually it didn't really lag at all. My mac is only for my art work so there's nothing on there to slow it down other than a plethora of PSDs. But they're small in the scheme of things.
