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.
