Sticking your neck out there
Sorry, bad pun.
I was doing some sketching from photo references this weekend. It really isn't the same as drawing from life, but seeing as that there isn't a whole lot of giraffes in Northern New England, I guess a photo will just have to do.*
And here's the more stylized version from later on. I'm not satisfied with the colors (the values are a bit too close), but here's a peak:
And now off to shovel. Again. I can't really complain though; as Dean Martin sang, "It's a marshmallow world in the winter..."
*For whatever reason, when writing this all I can think of is a pack of marauding, wild giraffes running undiscovered between the Maine/Canadian border. They'll have some real territorial struggles though with all those moose.
