Let's take a look at our giraffe! The body is made of a simple circle. The neck could be represented by small rectangles to imitate the flexibility of the bones. The legs are made with long but thin rectangles.

The head is a little more irregular but still easy to draw. The horns and the ears are made, in this case, with simple straight lines.
