How to Paint a Fox Step-by-Step

I’ve got this pained fox broken down into a few images to see how he is created, but if you need a little more instruction please watch the video below!

Start by lining the top half of his head. The crown of his head is like the top of football or eye. When adding your ears start smaller you can always make them bigger! Place your nose dot just below the orange arch in the center of his head. Add the bottom of his head the arch will be slightly closer to the center. I know his legs in the image are a little tricky to see, but they will pop out once you add his body.

Fill in all of your shapes and add some grass. Let this layer dry completely and then add a second one. Last comes the lining. Add a bit of extra black on the tips of his ears. A little dot highlight in the eye is a good final touch!
