While playing around with composition and searching for my next animal to portray, I decided that I would like to draw a giraffe but really show the scale of it in the simplest way. Red Billed Oxpeckers are notoriously known for hitching rides on the back of other animals which is where they will find most of their food. This cheeky little guy managed to find himself with a giraffe all to himself, happily riding away and eating dinner with a view.
This original piece was drawn using Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils on Fabriano Artistico 640gsm acid free paper.
