Day 2: Favorite Animal

I never am really sure about my favorite anything. Favorite color? Most days I answer purple, but I really like green and blue also. And orange since it's a school color. Favorite food, like tomorrow? Chicken? Pizza? Brownies? Too many options. Likewise, I had a couple choices for which animal I should draw.
I've always been a big fan of giraffes. I think it's because when I was little I was a bit taller than most of the other girls in my grade, so I felt some sort of connection to this tallest of animals. On the other hand, lion starts with L like my name does, and that's always been something I liked. Not to mention the awesome Velcro shoes I had when I was in Kindergarten that had some Lion King images on the side. In the end I decided on the one that I felt possibly embodied me more:
Like I said yesterday, living things are not my strong suit when it comes to drawing. If you couldn't tell, that image up there ^ was my reference for my drawing. I got the proportions a little off, but other than that I think it's okay. Certainly not lifelike or anything, but we all can tell it's a giraffe (right?) and I had fun with it.
I wish the scanner that I used didn't have such a bright light. For me to see this drawing with the colors that it actually looks like in person, I have to tilt my screen back a little bit. So if you're having trouble seeing it with good contrast, you should tilt the screen back some.
I mentioned earlier some foods that could be on my favorite food list. The one I picked is actually not up there. It's yellow, and (usually) sweet. And I like how I drew it :]
You should leave your guess for my favorite food and your own favorite animal in the comments!
Have a splendid Tuesday night and Wednesday!

  1. I'm guessing corn. I'm pretty certain after living with you for 20 years. Wow that makes me feel really old saying that.

    Favorite animal? Monkey! Turtle! I think those are my two faves. I still want a pet monkey.
