This image is titled Giraffe with sad Eyes. They are sad. I really fell in love with this image at first sight. I know it seems rather plain, but I printed out some images of live giraffes so I could color this in a realistic way. I think I succeeded. I did, however, not think about the rest of the giraffe's neck until I had it all matted and made into a card. I think I could have completed the spots on down the neck, but I'm taking an artist's liberties and NOT giving this giraffe more spots.
I wanted to make sure the shading was dappled and that's just what I did - I dappled.
