Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Mammoth" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the mammoth's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the left side to draw the mammoth's body.
Step 2: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head as guide lines to help you place the mammoth's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw a C-shaped line inside the head on the left side as a guide for the mammoth's ear.
Step 4: Draw a big circle to the left of the mammoth's head as a guide for the back portion of the body. The circle should be about four times the size of the mammoth's head. Place the big circle slightly below the head. Don't draw the circles too far apart, otherwise your mammoth will end up too long.
Step 5: Draw a couple of curved lines to connect the big circle with the mammoth's head and complete the guide for the body.
