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.



Time needed: 30 minutes.
