It’s time for another random animal sketch. Mostly I just couldn’t think of anything to draw again today. I decided that I wanted to draw something from a photograph rather than picking a random object from around the house. I still had no idea what I actually wanted to draw though. I tried to get Google to just show me a random image. I even tried just typing “something” into the Google image search but that didn’t yield anything useful either. Eventually I just had to make a decision.
I decided that I would draw an animal because I think I need more practice with those. In the end I chose a fox because I really like foxes and I haven’t tried to draw one before. It’s surprising really because I’ve liked foxes ever since I was a kid. Growing up The Fox and the Hound was one of my favourite Disney movies and I always related most to the fox. When I was older a friend of mine was seriously considering getting a pet fox for a while and he kept showing me countless pictures and YouTube videos of them. They are such cute animals, sort of halfway between a cat and a dog.
Sadly I don’t think I did the photo I used for this one much justice. I am glad that it came out looking like a fox. There’s just so much in a photo, so many subtle nuances, that can be difficult to capture on a tiny watercolour page. I probably could have kept improving on this one but I got it to a stage where I was at least moderately satisfied with it so I think I’ll settle with that for now.
