WATCH OUT, HUGE MONSTER! oO
besides the popular "why do you love foxes"- question, the most popular question people ask me is "can you give me tips on drawing foxes?" or something like that.
well...here we go. a long long long promised, crappy tutorial about drawing foxes. (btw. while browsing through dA i realized that there are - as always - a dozen wolf tutorials while you just rarely find good fox tutorials...bla. i love it to be a rebel
)cave: this tutorial doesn´t show the basics of drawing, it just give you tips about drawing foxes.
hopefully it can help you here and there....
several things i have to mention:
the poses and headshots were inspired by natural fox photographies to keep the images anatomically as correct as possible.
the photos are (c) to their much respected photographers.
unfortunately i wasn´t able to find out those. if you know some of these photographers, please tell me so i can add their names down here. thank you
tutorial (c) moi.
several inspiration is also taken from
"carving wolves, foxes and coyotes
" by desiree hajny

okay...at first thank you very much for the support, i was like "woah, geez! D:" when i came online today and suddenly i got about 1,000 messages more...thank you guys, i hope the tut can be useful to you
but its not the reason of my EDIT.
after it happens now several times, i thought i type it down here once again.
yes. i hate sparkledogs. please...stop whining now, like "omfg, you hate them, how dare you, you´re so ignorant!!1!1eleven" ...ignorant? no. i just don´t like them. get over it
fantastic characters - doesn´t matter if hybrids of thousands of critters in it, are okay for me - as long as it can be loosely recognized as an animal and not a complete ugly monster-mutant-thingie.
a little tatoo, a single collar is okay too - but no overload of earrings, pendants and so on.
characters with five colours or six or seven or eight are okay as well - but not twenty or thirty, including extreme neon pink or green or something like that.
little fluffy features here and there - is also okay - but i do not mean hyperfluffiness.
if your character is a dog with a little sign, thats okay - i never said that this makes your character a sparkledog. the thing i despise
are those mentioned omguberhyper-designs, which makes your eyes bleed and are just plain kitschy....less is more.
thats the essential thing i tried to say. and at the end, its also a matter of taste.
no offense to you or any other people. its just my opinion. i respect yours, so please respect mine - nuff said.
