Fill dark yellow all over the body of the giraffe. Then brown for the spots on the body of the giraffe. And color, light yellow in the mouth of the giraffe. Then dark brown to the mane and the tail of the giraffe. And a black color to the hoof of the giraffe. While drawing eyebrows and eyeballs you even can use black color, here we use a black marker for it. You can fill the color according to our wish too.

Colour Details:

  • Dark Yellow
  • Black
