How to draw a giraffe – step by step

In this post you will learn how to draw a giraffe. It will be a fairy-tale drawing of a giraffe, simple and easy to make. The drawing instruction will prove useful in art lessons as well as in kindergarten classes. I also encourage you to do drawing exercises at home. You can successfully make this drawing yourself. All you need to do this job is a blank sheet of paper, a pencil, an eraser, colored pencils and a felt-tip pen. However, use the felt-tip pen at the end when you are satisfied with your sketch. It is good to start drawing with a pencil sketch. Then, as soon as you make a mistake, you can always make corrections and rubber out the wrong lines.
