Started first, finished second of the mother~child series. Little did I know starting out this serie the theme mother~child would become sooo important to me.

Inspired by the lovely poster I have hanging on my wall, don't know where to find it online (haven't looked to be honest), but all credits go to Misha and Makulu who are Rothchild's Giraffes, picture taken by Ron D'raine. The original is something I still find one of the best images of all time!

I've seen that photo of the mother giraffe kissing the baby.. very cute

this is the photo I'm familiar with.. apparently a little different than what you have:

Ya thats the one I know too
enjoydotcom (edited May 23, 2007)
Yeah, found the poster, it wasn't too hard to find. I like this photo so much, I almost bought it twice. (Forgotten I already had it and stored because at that time I had no wall to hang it on).
It is different from the one you found Lori, that one is cute too! My version is still very different from the reference, wanted to use a bit of freedom after doing Rembrandt as truthful as possible.

Thanks, I hope I did the original justice, I know its a lot different, The style to begin with, but it was most imortant for me to get the feeling across than anything else.

Not sure if I ever told this back then explicitly, but I started this 2 weeks before my mother passed away very suddenly and finished it a couple weeks afterwards. I was already drawing a lot, and actually drawing on this site when I was called away to her. And afterwards I found solace in this.
It was and still is my main hobby, my mother knew (obviously) and liked to draw herself as well.

Glad you had it to help you through all that Joycie
