Fox in the Snow

By SilentRavyn
Snowstorm today =( I thought spring was coming! Ah well, this little foxie seems to be enjoying himself. I couldn't resist the thought of a red fox walking through a forest, paw deep in snow and calmly admiring the flakes falling around him. Unfortunately my scanner didn't pick up a lot of the detail in the snow on the ground, but I'll try and upload a better file later.

A little bit of an experiment, both with background and medium. For this I used a base of watercolor and then acrylic on top to make things look more 'solid'. Let me know how it turned out, as I might try it again in the future =3

:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Originality
:star::star::star::star::star-half: Technique
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Impact

Its....cute, the expression in its eyes and its mouth are incredible, its a very good job!

I've seen so much people (DA users and non-users) that draw the same scenes of animals/people in the snow enjoying it, thats why is not so... original, just need to plan more original scenes, all good drawings are cool because their ideas are never seen before in other art.

The technique its cool and I like it, maybe improve a little the shade? ...

The impact is good because is a very cute scene but is very ... common to see a pic of a creature in the snow.

Just... continue like that and you'll be a very good artist

WOW! I love this! I found a song that would go great with this: Cristofori's dream By David Lanz. Is it ok If I make a peice of art similar to this? Ill say that it was inspired by you?

As long as the layout, pose, etc. aren't the same (so it doesn't look like a copy) you are of course welcome to be inspired my my art =)

Foxes can be black or brown, you know.

Otherwise, good job.

Aaaaand what's the point? She chose red. Just because they CAN be, doesn't mean they have to be

Overabundance of red foxed in art makes me think people don't even know that.

I'm open for commissions periodically, and I will post to my twitter and journals when that happens ^.^ That sounds like a really fun piece to do!

You gave such a tender and soft atmosphere to the drawing.
The fox' face is so pacific, and the background, the snow effect and that tiny little snow flake, the soft coloring and the fur texture.. I love them all :heart:
You did such a good job :aww:
