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!
