You can use the elephant / mammoth designs to create a vast range of items such as CU4CU (commercial use for commercial use) as well as mugs, books, posters, car designs, tattoos, adverts, packaging, fashions, t-shirts, shoes and much more. Literally anything you can thing of.
Loading the mammoth / elephant brushes ?
The elephant / mammoth designs are in PNG as well as other formats and they can be loaded via the open command as well as the place command of many applications (if the application can't open PNG images then the best option is to use a free conversion tool to convert the elephant / mammoth designs into JPG and GIF etc) - applications such as Painter had problems with PNG for many years until the recent versions. Once loaded into Photoshop (say), go to the edit menu and define brush command and save the elephant design as a new brush. You can then apply the brush stroke via the standard brush tools found in the toolbox. You can also use the mammoth / elephant PNG files as a source for amazing patterns and textures etc so they can be used throughout the application to great effect. You can also merge / blend / combine the brush strokes to create multiple elephant / mammoth brush designs which in turn can be saved as a brush via the define brush command.
Use the mammoth / elephant brushes as layers
The designs are just files, you can load the elephant / mammoth designs and then apply the designs as a layer in any design. You can also use visual effects to the brushes to create even more amazing unique graphics for your project.
