Step 1: Draw the Ribbon

This step is only if you want to add an accessory to your fox. If you don`t want a ribbon, just skip this step.

Step 2: Sketch the Fox

Sketch the fox with a pencil. Don`t be afraid to use the eraser. Now is the time to make corrections of your drawing. Once you apply the paint it would be more difficult to make changes. That`s why it`s important to make a fine sketch.

Step 3: Apply the Main Colour of the Fox

This brush is perfect for making a fur/hair look.

Step 4: Paint the Shades

Add darker tones, in order to create depth in the painting.

Step 5: Paint the Eyes

Get into detail. Make the eyes pop out of the painting.Be careful not to make the eyes different.

Step 6: Final Touches!

Make the painting look real! Use a thin brush or black dip pen. Don`t forget to use as reference the photo of your fox.

Step 7: Your Fox Is Ready!

Step 8: Scan Your Painting and Use the Design on Different Items

How cool is that! You can make your own unique design!
