In The Bamboo by rajewel In The Bamboo by rajewel
I don't know why but I've wanted to draw an okapi wearing neckrings for a while. I doubt the native culture and the okapi ranges overlap but meh, i'll stick em on an okapi if i want to.

oh my goodness! I seriously went 'DUDE!' in my cat's face when i saw this. I adore okapis so its always lovely to see someone draw them, and the neckrings are just perfect for the okapi! you did a real amazing job on the face. I find that they're shape is pretty hard to get exactly right but yours is perfect. :clap:

Hah, I bet the kitty was surprised a bit by that. I'm thinking of trying to work out a fullbody design of this girl since the neck rings are fun xD. They do have an interesting face shape though, quite unique. I'm glad you think I got it pretty good.

She envies her cousin Mrs. Giraffe, always being compared to her ever since she was a wee critter.
