Giraffe by xbrightwingx Giraffe by xbrightwingx
I'm so happy this one is finished. I thought, again, that it was going to be quick and easy and boy was I wrong. over 5 days, 18 hours of painting, and a whole lot of paint later, it's finished.

Second installment of my African Wildlife series. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to paint next. I would love to do an elephant, but I'm looking at my references and they're scaring me with all they're detail :/ If I don't pick up the elephant, then it's either an African Wild Dog or an Okapi. The thought of painting either one excites me ^_^

another 3 hours wraps this piece up, bringing total time to approximately 18 hours.

All my pieces have specific watermarks to keep from theft and so I don't have to worry about putting up a dA watermark. You wont find them, so don't steal my work. I WILL prove it's mine ^_^
Thanks!

Watercolor on coldpress

This piece has been SOLD!!!
