Red Fox Princess by balaa Red Fox Princess by balaa
Another canine piece. I decided to have some fun and draw a red fox..this is one of my earlier pencil sketches and I know since this one I have already improved in technique. But I gotta remind myself every now and then that although improving and bettering myself in my art is not the most important thing. The most important thing is to continue to have a passion for what I do and to pour my heart into whatever I create along the road of learning.

Also one thing I do want to point out is..yes I actually do draw their bones bulkier intentionally :P..At this time I just prefer that look, may change later as I experiment and plaaaaaaaaay :D. But for anyone that wondered, yes, veray intentional!

A few comments from you deviant folks have truly made me step back and stop being so over critical of my work. Thats what I need, I don't think anyone else could rip apart my work as much as I do so myself. So oftentimes I forget to see the positive aspects in my own work and to see beyond the sometimes harshly worded critique I receive on my pieces. Thank you all. And mind you..I do appreciate well written critique, there is always room to grow...always.

tools: 11x14 bristol, mechanical pencil..think I just used a .7 on this one since it was more for the sheer hey of it.
prints: course, 8$ american plus S&H.
Time: :? can't remember honestly.

Original: sold

OH one more thing..does anyone out there in deviant land know a name of a really good celtic knotwork book? There are SO many out there but I want some advice on which are good!

Deviant Robert Sloan () might have some good ideas. He has a wealth of knowledge on drawing and sketching books. And he's done a bit of celtic knot work himself.

As for the foxy, she's very pretty, although I favor longer snouts myself. Your anatomical styling is extremely well done as always, and this is exactly the kind of work that speaks for the serious fan of anthromorphic pin up art. Tasteful fantasy, art for the sake of art, instead of art for the sake of fandom. There is a difference, and you show it very well.
