Lords of the Ice Age

A trio of woolly mammoths trudges over snow covered hills.  Behind them, mountains with snow covered peaks rise above dark green forests of fir trees.  Above, the dark moody sky threatens to add more snow to the ground.  The leader of the mammoths walks towards you.   The great animal of the Ice Age stares directly at you as if it dares you to challenge it for lordship over its Pleistocene kingdom.

As always, I love to create images featuring extinct mammals.  To make this, I used a variety of digital techniques including 3D rendering and digital painting.

Hello, Master artist, I used your stunning art to illustrate some background text on our Ninth Age French Facebook page, giving you due credits of course ! (link : web.facebook.com/groups/134005…)
The text in question is about an encounter with mammoths in the Makhar Steppe, the mammoth being a unit in the Makhar army.

I know these guys grew to be absolutely massive but I don't feel the sense of scale here.

Outstanding work as always :)
