The Curious Fox by Lhuin The Curious Fox by Lhuin
Been a long time since I did something as extensive as this, haven't done a full bg with foliage and other elements in a while :D got it mostly done in the streams but did the final adjustments now so it's all good for uploading.
Tried to something a bit more illustrative than just a 'character posing in the middle of the picture' this time, I feel like I've been a bit stuck with my works lately so trying out some things. Most of them shall stay in my sketchbook for now though haha.

Anyway hope you like it :) and rest assured, the fox is not after a ducky snack! ...unlike some of you in the stream! :eyes:

drawn in Photoshop, took quite a few days to do.

print to follow soon!

edit: last minute change! Flipped the picture. I think it flows better this way.

I'm sorry, but what I'm seeing is a fox ready to kill some ducklings. :crying: It's a very beautiful artwork, and I greatly admire your work in general, but to me this one doesn't communicate a curious fox, it looks to be intently staring at the ducklings (they themselves look friendly and curious), and the raised paw adds to the predator intentness.  He looks like he's crouching and has his paw raised (like a stalking cat) in readiness to attack. 
    I realize you may have been portraying the fox as walking forwards, in that case I think it would have been better to have the paw actually outstretched in mid-stride to indicate that. And I'd like to say I have nothing against foxes, they're cute animals certainly, I'm just pointing out that that's what this communicated to me. Perhaps if the fox was already almost off the log, and past the ducklings it wouldn't feel so dangerous. I watch a lot of nature shows as well though, so I've watched a lot of interaction between predator to prey, it's quite possible that's influencing my thinking. :P
  I absolutely love the way you did the water, it's so beautiful! :heart:

The fox is beautiful, and I'm really impressed by the detail of the vegetation.

I think flipping it makes a difference. Very nice job. If I would have done anything I would have included a leaf on the surface or a frog on the side. Instead of maybe grass near the roots of the trunk you could have sand and dirt.  Maybe some twigs near the branches. I guess these are mallard ducklings?I spend too much time at creeks. If I were to get any print it would be of this piece.
