Beautiful work, I love the detail and the range of tones. I really like the hint of a background too, it's a lovely composition overall. :)

Very nice :).... Is lovely... I need to make more of my "own" references... but certainly I find other people's photos nicer than mine :S

Thanks very much, Kay! I'm so glad you like it. :D

Thanks a lot, fedetony! It's definitely really fun when you're able to go out and get your own reference photos. :) Zoos work wonderfully for that for the more exotic animals. Even if you're able to go to a park or wilderness area simply to photograph some birds, you're able to add a whole new level of experience to your artwork based on that knowledge.

Shalese, another winner. I love giraffes but they are not easy to draw. They have such strangely shaped faces. You have done a wonderful job of your giraffe. Love it.

Thanks so much, Chammi! :) Yes, I agree that their anatomy is very strange indeed.

She's so beautiful! The texture of her fur is outstanding! She's got so much life and character. A great study, in fact, a great work of art - this should be framed. :D

Thanks so much, Wes! :)

Thanks very much, Jenna! I really appreciate it. And yes, I consider this a "study" just based on the fact that it's a simple drawing. I actually brought it to the framers today! :)
