Giraffe by Ileina Giraffe by Ileina
Hi there! :wave:

I started this drawing exactly a year ago and finally it’s done now :D

It will be the last one in graphite for the next time, as the next ones will be done with pastels ;)

Materials I used:
Bristolboard, actual size 33x22cm
Faber Castell Pencils H, HB, 2B, 5B, 8B
BluTac
Tombow Mono Zero erasers
Tissues and tortillion
totally 25 hours


The wonderful ref is from :iconmjwallace:


And I used this as a guide for the background:


Thanks for looking! :heart:

You'll have to bare with me as this is my first attempt at a critique.. Well what can I say other than this is a fantastic drawing. You have chosen a very nice composition to draw and I love the fact that the giraffes neck is twisted, which adds a nice little emphasis to the drawing. The detail in the fur and hair is superb.
The way you have used your pencil to capture all of the smallest detail is very well done. The white hairs up the maine stand out great and the whiskers on the chin are just as good. The eye is also very well done. Your shading and tones, along with the rest of the giraffe is bang on the money.
If I had to slightly criticise one thing then it would be the shading in the back ground (this is a very minor point and does not detract from this being a lovely drawing). This drawing of yours is very, very hard to criticise, so well done you should be very proud of yourself for this lovely piece.
What do you think?

Well done. I still feel unable to comment constructively on such masterpieces. I will just keep on learning, and then keep commenting also those :)
