Flying giraffe by Loopydave Flying giraffe by Loopydave
Gerald wasn't the giraffe with the longest neck, but was determined that his would reach the highest.

Done coz the image in my head made me happy.

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop. No giraffes were harmed in its production - Gerald is a trained professional and is always careful to follow safety guidelines.

Flying giraffe by *Loopydave is a lovely rendered cartoon. I just love the sense of motion and the giraffe's expression. ( Featured by alexandrasalas )

Goes without saying that no giraffe's head will reach as high as Gerald's.
Very funny image!

I was thinking the same thing when I was looking at this image; helicopters
so wouldn't work. He probably thought the same thing; standing there, looking
at the helicopter. "Now, if those blades on top spin at high velocity to keep
the thing in the air-- just where would I put my head!?" :O

He he...the goggles remind me of that plane scene in Madagascar 2.

The scarf and story make it your own though, I like the idea.
