The diagram helped me gain confidence in my giraffe drawing. I typically draw what I see and it’s hard for me to draw from memory or imagination. It turned my horse with a really long neck into a giraffe. Diagrams can be a great tool for artists because they help fill in information really quickly.
There is a link on the giraffe page that leads you to a list of other animal diagrams. I printed each one out and slipped them into those plastic page protectors and bound them. Now I have a whole book of animal diagrams and should the need arise to draw a bison or a kangaroo, I’m set. My daughter and husband used the binder this afternoon and it got the ball rolling for them.
I wanted my younger girl to get in on the action so I created a binder just for her. I printed out some realistic coloring pages from http://www.letmecolor.com/ and slipped them in the page protectors then gave her an expo marker so she could have her own fun. After her fun we can wipe the marker right off.
