Oliphaunt by Mara999 Oliphaunt by Mara999
I've decided to draw the oliphaunts not too much larger than some real-life extinct relatives and ancestors of elephants, but still big enough to be considered absolutely massive. I've mixed traits from mammoths and modern elephants, but I also wanted to give them an extra set of tusks to make them look more fierce and ancient.

Did you see my rendition of the fell-beasts?

I just now had a look at them. Not how I would have drawn them, but I like how the fell-beasts look like they could be real animals.

Yeah, I wanted to mix features of vultures with that of pterosaurs (Pterodactyls), terror birds, and dromaeosaurs (raptors) to see if this would fit Tolkien's original depiction.

Well done! Aside from the extra pair of tusks, it looks very much like a mammoth-elephant crossbreed! :)
