This was originally something I was working on for the Kingdom-Carousel charity artbook. I did learnt, and it was lots of fun to do. It's not quite finished to my liking, but I feel that I've spent enough time on this piece and I would like to go work on something else now.

The clothing designs were inspired by a mix African patterns with a fantasy twist.

child innocence, so cute. Love how you chose Africa (assuming from giraffes and all) as the setting for the kids' adventure. Going back to the origins, nice.

Great job with the lighting! The clouds looks really fluffy and soft. The sunset colors are really nice too. <3 I like the tiny details like the little giraffe you can see in the distant background or the little footsteps in the sand. The character design looks unique. I especially like the girl's design. I like the little pattern you chose for the tops. Also, I think you have a secret love for cute poofy shorts. Am I right? hehe ;u;

H-HIRU AOMGGGGGGGGGGGGG
I REALLY LOVE GIRAFFES ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;


wow i love the way
this picture is laid out. it's... like... a CIRCLE OMG ;;;;;;;
i love how the giraffes lead from the bottom to the center, they really draw your eye, along with the shadows and just

wahoooooomggggggg *-* the lighting here is so... so comfortable. it makes me feel so peaceful since everything is so serene, even though the lighting is from the back and quite bright it's not harsh at all and really easy on the eyes, especially soft, too Q.Q

hiruuuuu i always love how versatile your style is! you can draw all kinds of things well, like even those bushes on the bottom are so lively and cute q____q

while the picture isn't overloaded with extra things i feel like there's just the right amount of subjects and such, i just
can't
get
over
how
COMFORTABLE
this piece feels. *O*

I REALLY LOVE THIS HIRUUUUUUUU!!
i don't feel like people make a lot of scenes like this or is it just me? ;;;;; it stood out a lot in my inbox and i was like AMGGGGG IT'S BY HIRUUUUU ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
