More about Giraffe Drawing

This approach to drawing a giraffe works well for really young artists as there is no attempt to make the bodies look dimensional. The legs just kind of attach to the body in a flat way, and everything is overly simplified, but in the end I think that’s what makes it so charming! This tutorial project started out years ago as just a baby and mom looking at each other, but along the way a kinder filled in their space between them with hearts. It was such a sweet and brilliant idea I have made it a part of my permanent instructions ever since. (Thank you Nola!)

Materials for a Mother’s Day Drawing

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
