Step 1.

When drawing two animals you will need to obviously do double the work. Start by making two circles for the heads, and then draw in a neck line for the male, and then the two odd body shapes after.

Step 2.

Now begin sketching out the shapes of their heads and structures of their faces. Both have those cheeks full of hair, and they both have the same sized ears that needs to be drawn. When that is done sketch out the male fox's snout like you see here,    

Step 3.

Here you can start sketching out her snout, and then draw in the noses and all the whiskers too. Now that you have done all this, it's time to draw in the eyebrows, and then some of the hair inside of the ears, and on the forehead. Also draw out the    

Step 4.

Here is the time where you will begin drawing out the shapes of her batty eyes, and then draw out his masculine style eyes. Sketch out the mask or marking lines around the entire eye shape. This is for that two tone fur color. The color of a fox's fu   

Step 5.

You are already half way done with this lesson. It's now time to sketch out the shapes of their necks, chest, and for him his back, and front legs. Also be sure to sketch in that fury chest hair as well.

Step 6.

Now sketch out the back legs, and then sketch in some more of their front legs. Once that is done, you can begin sketching out the fur detailing on her chest, and then draw out the marking lines on the front legs like so, and then move to step seven    

Step 7.

The reason why you are not going to finish drawing the legs, is because the huge puffy tails are covering the legs. Sketch in those puffy tails, and be sure to make them connect at the tips. The female tail has less hair the the male fox tail. Draw i

Description: I guess you could say that there is hundreds of animals that one can choose to draw, and even though it may seem easy to think of something to create, making a choice between what species to make a lesson out of can be pretty challenging. I decided to create a tutorial that will teach you ""how to draw foxes", step by step. I drew these foxes when I was live yesterday and as I started the sketch, almost everyone knew what they where. The female fox has a slender, more feminine body with a narrow snout. The male fox has a thicker, meatier physic with a wider snout to make him look like a boy fox. The fox is a sly animal because they can be very cunning. There are also a few different species with the smallest being the Fennec fox. There is about thirty seven different types of fox, with the red and arctic fox being amongst the more popular. The two species I drew for you are red foxes, and they are the ones that you see in your backyards sometimes or you will even catch them running across a field or even street. They live in the forest and they are considered to be extreme social animals. I've only seen about four foxes where I live, but I'm sure if you live in a heavily wooded area, you see much more than that. The tutorial is going to be marked as intermediate because there is two animals you are drawing, and they are kind of in a difficult pose to draw. Overall, I think you will have fun as you learn "how to draw foxes", step by step. That's all I have for you today, but tomorrow I will be back with more drawing fun. Adios people, tomorrow is going to be another fun drawing day!
