Young giraffe portrait 8"x11.5"

I'm calling this one finished,it is a little looser than my norm but i was happy to let it go that way,i think it captured the character of the youngster which was what i wanted from this one.This is quite a small piece and i already have an image in mind for my next drawing which will be a much larger image,so i'm away back to the studio now to work on the initial outline drawing.Hope you like this little giraffe,i'll be back in a few days with the first news on my new image!
