STEP 1. In this first step you will be drawing out the guidelines and circles for the beginning frame work of the woolly mammoth. Start out by drawing a big circle for the face. Then a smaller circle gets placed right on top of the large face circle, this is going to be the hump that mammoths have on their heads. Now draw two circles that go diagonal from each other, these will later be the back and shoulder of the side of the animals body. Now go right around the back to draw three more circles for the hind leg structure. Then one more oval circle for the front foot. Now that the circles are don you can go ahead and draw the lining for the tusks, forehead, back, and front legs. You can then move to step 2 after you complete connecting the dots.   STEP 2. In this step you can see that you will be drawing and sketching out parts of the body. Starting at the face, sketch in the eye and the hairy fur that hangs over the eye. The hair should be thick and bushy. Then draw the trunk of the woolly mammoth which looks like a regular elephant trunk. After you draw out the trunk you can go ahead and sketch out or draw the big long tusks. These are similar to an elephant, the only difference is that they are alot longer and curved at the tip facing the front of the animal. Now you can sketch in the bushy and draw the shape of the big front and back legs. Remember thick bushy hair.   STEP 3. Here in this step you will be detailing and defining the woolly mammoths body structure. Start by sketching and forming the hump on top of the head that usually has a hair do. These animals where kinda cute if you really look at them. Next finish of the drawing and sketching by detailing the entire body as shown above. This step is really simple because the woolly mammoth is a big dense animal, so there is really no small details to draw out. The legs basiclly look boxy just like a regular elephant. After you are satisfied with this step you can erase all the guidelines and circle shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 4. After you are done erasing all those circles and guidelines, your sketch should end up looking like this. Now isn't he just so cute. I love him. Now all you have to do is take some good colored pencils and color him in. I wouldn't recommend using markers or crayons because this animal contains alot of hair and it is hard to make a animal look hair with such a wet tipped tool or a waxy stick. You can also color in the woolly mammoth in Photoshop like I always do. Either way you choose.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4.
