For my next lesson I will want to do a tutorial on another requested character from the very funny movie “Madagascar”. There is only four main animal characters and I already have two of them submitted on the site. One is Marty and the other is Alex. Marty is the wild and hip zebra and Alex is the roaring superstar lion. This lesson is going to be on “how to draw Melman” from Madagascar step by step. Melman is the melodramatic giraffe that believes he is sick all the time. In fact he believes he is so sick, he is often seen with a thermometer in his mouth to make sure that he is not dying of any ailments spread to him from other animals and even humans. Unlike Marty and Alex, Melman doesn’t have a best friend. Instead he sees Gloria as a love interest, and Marty and Alex are his very good friends. What makes this character even funnier is the voice actor. As some of you may know “David Schwimmer” provided his voice talent for the lanky looking giraffe and because of that he is 100% more hilarious. Besides being misplaced in the wild, he lives and has lived at the Central Park Zoo located in New York since he was very young. If you guys watched both Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, you already know that Melman loves Gloria who happens to be a hippo. In part two the other giraffes appoint Melman as their own witch doctor because he is very knowledgeable with cures, detection, and symptoms of sicknesses that may cause other giraffes to meet their fate. All in all I think that Melman is a very unique character and I like him as much as I like Alex and Marty. This lesson will show you how to draw Melman from Madagascar step by step. I hope you guys have fun and enjoy your tutorial request. Peace out and party on people.
