How to Draw a Baby Fox
Baby Fox Tutorial Video
When you learn how to draw a simple fox that keeps all the recognizable features of that animal, you store it away in your “keeper” file, and try it with all kinds of different media. This simple fox drawing, which was inspired by some simple clip art years ago. It used to be a staple with kinders when I was still working in the classroom. Telling students to “draw a large U at the top of their paper” and so on, was something they could understand and made the rest of the drawing kind of fall into place. Oil pastels, which generally create much thicker and smudgier lines, can really shine here. Their rough quality makes them look rather textured, which is perfect for the coat of a furry fox.
