I was asked to do a lesson on a realistic fox, and that is what I will be submitting today. This is going to be a highly detailed drawing on a red fox, and for those of you that have been wanting a tutorial on “how to draw a red fox”, you can use this lesson for that very same purpose. A fox is one of the most popular forest animals to date. They live n borrows, and in other areas such as mountains, and deserts. Unlike some other forest animals, the red fox adapt well to humans and human environments. Normally these animals will feed on rodents like squirrels, rats, and mice, and they also eat rabbits, birds, frogs, fish, and even worms. Did you ever wonder why a fox has a big busy tail? Well, like the feline, the bushy tails help foxes keep their balance. They also use their tails to signal other fox in the area, as well as an aid to keep them warm on cold days and nights. Also like cats, they use their urine to mark trees and rocks. You would think that since this is a forest animal, they mate in the spring like other animals right? Well, the fox mate in the winter. What is a female fox called? If you said 'vixen', you're right. The vixen will give birth to either a small litter of two, or a large litter of twelve. In general the red fox is a solitary animal, and they are very resourceful as well. I had fun sketching out this animal, and I know you guys will too. Learning how to draw a realistic fox is something that every artist should learn how to draw at some point in their creative lives. I will be back a little later with more drawing fun so stay tuned in people!

How to Draw a Red Fox

how to draw a red fox step 1

STEP 1.

This is not actually a drawing step, it's more like a reference tip that you should keep in mind. Like this tip says, foxes can be drawn in many different poses and views. They can be drawn standing, running, trotting, or even drawn with an animal in their mouths.

STEP 2.

Here is the many body parts of a red fox or a fox in general. There are some tips on the eyes, snouts, skull of a fox, and the paws and bone view of the leg and paw. This is a really cool sketch out of the many body parts of a fox.

STEP 3.

Now let's start drawing a fox shall we? Draw a circle for the head, and then add the shape of a snout. Next draw two other circles for the chest, and back area of the fox. You will now connect the head to the body using a neck line, and then connect the two body pieces like you see here. Draw the legs, and then move to the next step.

STEP 4.

Start sketching out the fox's snout in more detail, and then draw and color in a nose. Every line on the fox should be a sketch. Having said that, finish sketching out the head, eye, ear, and some of the neck. You can see that there is sporadic pieces of fur that stick up a bit to convey the texture of this animals coat.

STEP 5.

You will continue to sketch out the fox's body. Keep in mind that you have to use a sketching motion to get the effect of the fury or fluffy coat. The chest is strong looking, and then back en is relaxed and calm. Continue to sketch out the body like you see here, and then move to step six.

STEP 6.

This will be your last drawing step. Finish sketching out the legs, paws, and then the over puffed tail. There is a color marking line at the tip of the tail as you see here. When your fox is sketched out completely, you can erase the lines and shapes that you no longer need.

When you are done, the fox comes out looking like the one you see here. Color it in using pastels, crayons, markers, or paint. You did a great job, and now you can proceed to another drawing.
