Worked on the giraffe man today. I started by putting a lighter color on what corresponded to lighter base areas in my reference photo. Then I started putting on spots. Doing the spots is going to take a loooong time. But hey, it's freehand practice, of a sort. I don't think I'm doing great at matching the reference with the spots -- they're too close together and too intertwined. I'm not going to change it now, though. It'll look worse if it's inconsistent.
