VIDEO: DIY Wooly Mammoths - Working Large to Small Details

It's mammoth Monday! I'm so excited because I got my big box of the new, fabulous OLO markers! So I did a ton of coloring this weekend and I'll have several videos for you in the coming weeks. The ink flow is amazing. So much more like painting. 

Today's post is inspired by my friend Amanda Garrett, who cracked me up turning an elephant into a wooly mammoth a few months ago. Why didn't I think of that?? If you love marker coloring, give her a follow - she's a great colorist and a super creative scene builder. 

So I took the momma and baby elephant from this Mother's Day themed set and I used OLO markers for the base layers, and did the finishing furry and shading details with these pencils. It's a simple process, but as you'll see in the video, it might look crazy at first - the key to furry things is to stick with it and add layers. My favorite coloring cardstock for marker and pencil is this artist's choice.

The sentiment is from the same set. This is all part of this mom-themed and spring-themed release. It's MOMMOTH hahah.
