Chades: Armor Giraffe & IF: Multiple



IF:
Here are multiple giraffes I drew for a character design challenge called "Chades." I finished it on Thursday and what luck, "Multiple" was the IF word.

Chades:
Here is a giraffe modeling some medieval and space armor. Giraffes are my new favorite animal: Hairy antennas, strange proportions, Huge ears and eyes, and awesome patterns. They are so cool, as Austin already stated. Probably wont get more armored giraffes in this week. See more armored giraffes at Austin's (Munchanka) link to the left.

Observation: with those long necks giraffes must get crazy head rushes.

i love the armored one. i put armor on a marmot once for a magazine. perhaps the giraffe and the marmot should joust each other?

Fabulous! I like the middle guy best - I am imagining some knight trying to ride him in a jousting tournament!

isn't it funny how, when you draw something from observation, you gain a certain appreciation for it. This is great stuff, to say the least.

André Gribble said...

Interesting.
I like how the horns in the second giraffe were made into armor spikes. Nice touch.
Great work as usual.

Brine Blank said...

Okay those are pretty awesome! I had a friend send me a link for a guy that designed cat armor...and I mean the real looking ornate deal...it was pretty spectacular. Great idea for a project! I believe I'll share this one...

Munchanka said...

That's a smart idea, using the same pose, and playing with armor concepts. I like the exaggeration of the horns, very nice Josh!
I posted some really superb animal armor from a site Steve MacLeod showed me. you should check 'em out!
