STEP 1. Okay this is step one, and in step one you will be drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes to help make drawing a giraffe a whole lot easier. Start by drawing a small circle for the head with a squared cone shape for the nozzle. Then draw the two horns on top of the head along with the ears. From the circle draw a long straight line for the neck until it touches the other circle your going to draw right now. This will be the base for the mid section of the body. From that round shape draw three long lines for the legs with smaller circles for the knees and hooves.   STEP 2. In this step you are going to be drawing out the outer frame of the giraffes body. Starting at the head all you have to do is sketch out the shape of the face using the shapes you drew in step 1. Sketch in an eye and detail the snout a bit and add a line for the mouth. Next draw the shape of the neck and make sure your lining thickens the further you go until you come to the back part of the giraffe. Sketch in the front chest and leg, and sketch the detailing for the back thigh.   STEP 3. This is a very short simple step because all you will be doing is sketching out the shape of the giraffes legs. This is a very simple procedure to do because the legs are basiclly straight lines that go up and down. Detail the giraffe a bit and move to step 4.   STEP 4. This is going to be a very time consuming step because you literally have to sketch out each spot shape all over the entire body, even the legs. Each spot is different and they should get smaller as you go down the length of the legs. After you draw out all these spots you can erase the guidelines and circle shapes.   STEP 5. And whala this is what you should end up with when you are done with your sketch. Simple right? I know. Well this was another fun tutorial on how to draw an African Plains giraffe.   Step 1. Step 2.
