I went to our local zoo this winter & saw some sweet animals. I really loved these giraffes; they were so close I could touch their lovely velvety muzzels.

xpost in open critique- didn't get any feedback :(.

Hoping for any ideas on improving my style. There are some amazing wildlife artists that post in this section, I was a little hesitant to post :eek:

Whats wrong with your style? its very good! :thumbsup:

For me, personally the orange is a little too orange and again, for me personally I think I would have changed the background, but it really is very good and others would probably disagree with me anyway :wink2:

Well I think you have captured the velvet look very well and also the calm nature of these animals too

Very nice piece. They may be strangers simply feeding but you've created a bond between them.
