I love giraffes. They’re so gangly and yet graceful at the same time. On a visit to South Africa in 2013, we stayed in a reserve where giraffes and zebras walked freely among the guest lodges. It’s quite a scary thing to have a herd of fully-grown giraffes walk right past you!
It’s always a challenge to avoid getting too detailed with the patterns on a giraffe’s body. I think I managed to keep this one fairly loose.
