I love the size comparison between the human and the Giraffe. I also like how realistic you made Girafarig

Normally, it isn't as tall but I wanted to change it up a bit.

Yeah, I like what you did though, because it gives some diversity. It is really tiny in the game when you compare it to the main character who is only eleven years old

There are really clever. I like the old-fashioned commentary, it adds a wonderful realism to it all, and the sketches really bring it all together.

Yea, he is but I've taken some "artistic" liberties. I just don't think that he should be small. He is so bad ass like this. :) what do you think?!

Me too! Giraffes are one of my favorite animals and to be honest, I felt slighted they made him so short in game. LOL

Any reason why you made Girafarig much taller than it is in the pokedex? You seem to keep the heights of the other pokemon relatively similar, this just seems like a drastic change.

I don't like the fact that girafarig is so short in the game. I think it's an error in design on Nintendo's part. Also, I think with the change he seems more realistic and a much more formidable creature. It's also asthetically pleasing and gave me some artistic freedom with interpretation without ruining the "feel" of the actual pokemon. I also took some liberties with Crustle in creating a male/female. Most of the included material is taken from the Pokedex but I have tried to make it "real" without crushing most of the "facts". I hope that makes sense.

I love how the NPC you came up with goes along with the tradition of naming the professors after types of trees. <3

I tend to think of Girafarig as more Okapi-ish since it isn't very tall. Good job though!

Maybe I should add a man standing next to him to give the height more prominence?

That could work actually. Show how tall you think Girafarig would really be! ^.^ Btw, I really really love your field guides lol!
