Isn't it cute? A baby giraffe for the baby's room.
I started with one of the thin canvas boards.
Then I painted the stripes. They were supposed to be grey but look black to me. Oh well.
Painted and colored in the outline.
You can't tell very well but I drew eyes and stuff with pencil.
I looked at a photo I have of a giraffe and they have lighter color around the eyes and stuff so I tried to do that. I also did the spots.
Realized it didn't look right for the nose and mouth so fixed it.
Added the little lines on the forehead and darkened the spots.
Drew the black of the eyes, nose and mouth.
Added some shading/eyelids.
Added the white dots in the eyes.
Tada! Cute baby giraffe acrylic painting.
