Morgan's Challenge Start Now

Join us at Morgans ArtWorld Challenge Blog to enter our challenges which last month long beginning on the 15th of each month.  Be sure to visit Morgans ArtWorld on Facebook Group and  Morgans Facebook Page.

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.
