About Giraffes and Da Man

First of all, I've seen at Niroot's DeviantART page today that there's a guy who is asking for giraffes, he needs 1 million before 2011, so why don't you go and check the challenge and create a giraffe for him and maybe spread the word? the only rules are that you can't use a computer to create it and of course can't buy it. It'll be fun and hey, why not?! anyone who thinks about something like this and put so many people to create all kind of giraffes "just because" should achieve the goal, don't you think? let's think giraffes! Oh, and since we're at it don't forget to check out Niroot's gallery, he's an extraordinaire artist.

And now to the WIP of Tim Burton portrait, I've painted a bit more today right before lunch, it's starting to have stronger values, I'm going where it's leading me at this point and I'm enjoying the process much more this way, why struggle when you can have fun with it? Now, if only I could speed up a bit...
BTW say hello to my tools too, I almost forgot how much I like painting flesh on Fabriano SP paper, it's a perfect paper for painting on dry, prrrrfect!
