How to Draw a Fox Head

Artist: Dawn / September 2, 2013

Step 1.

Start by making the guides for the head and snout like you see here. Sketch in the mouth line as well.

Step 2.

Next, begin sketching out the actual shape of the snout, then draw in the forehead and some of the hair on top of the head.

Step 3.

Up next, begin sketching the shape of the ear like so, and instead of a pointed tip, you will need to draw a rounded tip. Add the hairy fuzz to the cheek or jaw line like so, then draw the bottom mandible.

Step 4.

All you have to do here is draw in the other ear.

Step 5.

Next, sketch in the face starting with the eye, then sketch the nose, inner ear detailing and all the texture definition on the face. Be sure to shade in some of the area around the eye and then sketch in the nose and whiskers.

Step 6.

For your last drawing step all you have to do is sketch out the shape of the neck, then add detailing to his coat to create that fur look. Erase your mistakes then you're done.

Step 7.

Your line art should come out looking like the drawing you see here. Color in your fox and show off your work.

Description: More animal heads on the way people so let me start with something I drew two days ago. Here is "how to draw a fox head", step by step. If you notice the fox is in a side or profile pose because I wanted to make this lesson as easy as I possibly could. I know there is a lot of folks out there that love foxes which means a lot of you will want to tackle this lesson. Drawing animal heads is fun, but I think I wore out my excitement by doing too many of them all in one sitting. There is actually three more animal heads coming your way so if you stay tuned in you will see more animals from the past and present. Have fun drawing a fox head folks and remember to leave that feedback.
