Giraffes are known for standing up straight and tall, but what happens when they sit down? Well, why don’t we take a closer look and find out?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a curved “triangle” shape to the center of the page.
Add two small ovals in the center of this…
And then add a curved line to the top of each.
Now, draw two small dots in the bottom section of the face…
And add two tall columns to the top of the head, topped with small circles, for the horns of your giraffe.
Now, add a curved, pointed ear to either side of the head.
Add a curve below the top of the ear…
And then bring two curved lines down from the bottom for the neck.
Add a curved line to the bottom right, and then take the line on the left across to the left, and then curving down towards the bottom of the page.
Add a wavy line to the right of this, and add a “hook” to the top.
Now, add a horizontal line to the end of this. Take this down, then back across to the left, and back up to the top right corner.
Add a square-shaped hoof to the end of this leg…
And then bring a line across to the right, before taking this up in a wavy line.
Add a curved line to the side of this, and take this across to join the hoof.
Now, add another leg to the right of the first one…
Now, return to the left, and add two curved lines snaking across to the right.
Add a flame shape to the end of this, creating a tail.
Now, add a series of shapes up the back of the neck – each should be angled at the edges, and then connected in the center with a straight line.
Cover the body with patterns and spots.
Use a black pen to shade the hooves.
Now, use a brown pen for the end of the tail, and the mane on the back of the neck.
Use an orange pen for the patterns, and for the inside of the ears…
And then use a yellow pen for the rest of the body.
Now, it is time for us all to back away, and let this gorgeous giraffe rest and relax – she has had a tough day!
