War Mammoth

153 Favourites
"War Mammoth" embodies power, might and majesty. A towering mammoth and soaring mountain peaks shape a stately and powerful scene where trees make a subtle nod to prior 'Shadow Woods' festivals and an icy castle stands representational of the indoor 'Shadow Frost' location in Frederick, Maryland.

Illustrated in traditional oils (in the vein of early fantasy artists like Frazetta or Jeff Jones), the "War Mammoth" artwork seeks to represent Shadow Frost, and Heavy Metal both literally and figuratively. "War Mammoth" is frosty, ferocious, bestial, heavy, and metal.

Absolutely outstanding! The lethality of the cold along with how metal the mammoth is really makes this so fantastical!

Majestic ^^ I love how it composes with the background. I wonder how hard it would be for such a large creature to travel such harsh environment.
