Why? They're pretty. They have long necks. They make exceptionally charming doodles. And who needs reference? Just put a long neck and some lollipop horns on it, it's a giraffe.
But I thought about it today and realized it was probably about time I learned how to draw this much-beloved creature for real. So here are some sketches. The first two are from reference, the last is some attempts to apply what I learned.
So hopefully from now on my spacefilling doodles will be even more beautiful.
