Fox - Red Alert

A red fox taking a well deserved rest on a frozen lake... but she's alert, as ever, as wild animals are.

Else there is little to say about the piece - it was a simple background, that's for certain, but sometimes you just want to draw fur. A lot of it. And nothing else. Also - fox paws. Which were blurry on the original reference photo, so I had to improvise a little - but I think it went well!

Reference photo by Menno Schaefer on wildlifereferencephotos.
