How to draw Fox. Learn to draw fox step by step with easy to follow instruction. It’s been a while since I’ve draw or sketch any animal or creature so I decided to sketch something basic. Practice drawing animals is always a good way to explore different forms of anatomy design. As a concept artist, if you want to be a good creature design too, you must practice animal drawings. In this tutorial, you will learn to draw a fox from basic geometry shapes to start off with until final gray scale drawing or illustration.
Foxes are omnivorous mammals, some are carnivores. They are small to medium-sized canids (slightly smaller than the medium-sized domestic dog), characterized by possessing a long narrow snout, and a bushy tail. Foxes stalk their prey just like cats. Also like cats, they often play with their catch before they kill it. If they aren’t hungry, they may even catch mice just to play with, then let them go when they are done. In the wild, foxes can live for up to 10 years, but most foxes only live for 2 to 3 years due to hunting, road accidents and diseases. Foxes are generally smaller than other members of the family Canidae such as wolves, jackals, and domestic dogs.
Here is a final drawing of a fox
Below are step by step how to draw a fox. When drawing animal, the best practice is to observe them in the zoo and life draw. You can do it in the wild if you are lucky enough. Using references is also a good practice, but seeing them in real life is a lot better for your practice. Step one, I just capture the biggest shape I see first. I tend to simplify the subject when I start drawing to get the proportion correct first. Step two, once I have the main part of the subject and its proportion, then I start adding other element such as ears, snout, eyes and legs. At this point, I still keep it simple. Step three, I already have the correct proportion and shape, I can start refine the shape into a fox at this point. Now you have a simple fox drawing. From step four to six, it is more of shading process. You can use pencil, charcoal or wash ink and brush to do that.
