Charging Mammoth

Charging Mammoth

A raging mammoth charges at you. Crashing through the ice age snow, this Pleistocene beast raises its huge tusks as it lunges forward. If you were a prehistoric hunter, this would definitely be a bad day for you.

I’ve created a number of artworks featuring mammoths before, but for this one I really wanted to ratchet up the action and make this extinct animal really seem powerful and scary.
 
Thanks for looking!

A Storm of Mammoths

Winter is around the corner, and I wanted to post some art to get me in the mood. This one, a bit of Mammoth Art, is from my paleoart series.  I have Mammoths heralding the coming of the cold season. The first dusting of snow has fallen and a rabbit has ventured out to see what all the commotion is about. 

Most animals have a collective noun that names a group of them. For instance, a group of crows is called a murder, a group of chickens is called a brood, cats…a clowder, geese…a gaggle, etc.. However, there doesn’t appear to be a collective noun for mammoths. I guess being extinct deprives them of that. Well, I’ve decided that I like the word “storm” for a group of Mammoths, at least for this particular artwork. 

This artwork was created digitally using 3D art applications as well as painting applications.
