Not every animal keeps their “look” after you boil them down to just a few simple shapes, but I believe this fox is one of the exceptions. The face with the long nose, the large ears, the strong legs and fluffy tail are all there, and most definitely say “I am a fox”. Not a dog or a wolf, but most definitely a fox.

The side view of his body also gives students a chance to detail the distinctive coloring on his legs. If you think you can only blend shades with oil pastels, guess again. Most black crayons do a pretty good job of mixing with other colors, you just have to go back and forth and overlap a lot. The goal is to have a nice soft edge between the dark feet, and whatever reddish color students have chosen for the body.

Materials for a Red Fox Drawing

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
