giraffe calf progress

A couple of days work on the giraffe itself now and it's starting to make sense.This drawing isnt as 'tight' as some of mine,it seems to want to be worked a little looser so i'm not going to fight it!.I have to admit to having slightly lost interest in this piece as ive got more exciting ideas taking up the room in my head but i shall complete it,ive never been one for leaving images half complete.The thing that appealed to me in the first place about this image was the rather whimsical way in which the giraffe was holding it's head and so i'm hopeful that despite my relative disinterest now that someone else will find it enchanting.

Looking Clive. I know what you mean about leaving a drawing half done. I sometimes find that once I fight through those feelings it turns out to be one of my best. Good luck with this one.

I love the twist to the neck! It is such a fun point of view. I didn't know what to think with the initial post. I couldn't figure out how this was going to be a giraffe with such a skinny space for a neck. I am glad you are finishing it!!
