What should I do if I make a mistake on my drawing in Sharpie?

Color the drawing, if you wish, or at least darken the crucial parts of the pattern.

Sketch a big egg-like shape in the middle of the page . This will be the head.

Draw two small egg-like shapes on the right upper side of the head. These will be the ears.

Draw the basic shape of the skull and attach it to the neck.

Foxes have characteristic small noses at the end of their pointed muzzles. They may be slightly protruding up.

Sketch oval shapes on the left lower part of the body for the front legs.

Draw a question mark like shape diagonally at the right upper side of the body shape. This will be the tail.

Practice, practice, practice. The more you draw these foxes, the better you can remember how to draw them. Try focusing on specific features of the fox that define it, like the eyes or the pose.

The tutorial is finished, but this guide is just a beginning—now it’s time for you to work on your own. Remember: The best way to learn how to draw foxes is to draw them! Your first drawings may be bad, but don’t let it stop you from practicing. Sketch a lot, actively search for mistakes and solutions for them, and you’ll see yourself getting better with every drawing. And don’t shy away from references—use them as long as necessary to understand foxes completely.

Are there any other ways to draw a fox other than the one in the article?

Complete the legs and add the paws. For the paws, draw triangles at the end of each leg.

Most foxes change their coat for winter, but this species takes it to extreme. It’s dark brown in summer, and pure white in winter. The length of fur changes drastically as well, so these two forms of the same fox may look like two different species! Other than that, the arctic fox looks very similar to the red fox, with slightly sturdier muzzle and smaller ears, often made visually smaller by the fur. The eyes are yellow or brown.

You now have enough guidelines to create the final drawing. Don’t worry if at this point your fox doesn’t resemble the species you were going for. The pattern of fur, especially the dark stripes between the eye and the whisker area, are a crucial part of the species look.

Draw three triangle-like ovals on the top of the head for the ears. The third oval-like shape is for the fox’s muzzle.

Add the ears and the snout. Draw 2 tall pointed arcs for the ears. Add a line in the middle of the head. This would be your guide in placing the eyes. Below the head, add a letter U which would serve as the snout.

This is optional but you might want to add a line from the center of the U to the center of the line. This would guide you in drawing the face.

Repeat this step on the right side of the body for the back legs.

Sketch the skeleton quickly and loosely. It doesn’t need to be detailed, but make sure the proportions are roughly correct, and that you know what kind of perspective you’re going for. If  you know how to draw a simplified skeleton of a fox from imagination, but you can’t come up with any natural pose, take some time to sketch various poses from photos.

There are many species of foxes, so you need to learn some more details if you want to be more realistic in your drawings. I will show you a few things about popular species, but make sure you study them thoroughly from photos to get a more complete picture.

Here’s the whole simplified muscles diagram if you want to use it as a reference:

Put some upside-down “glasses” on the top of the muzzle—this is the eye socket area.

I have shown you How to Draw Wolves. I have shown you How to Draw Cats. Now it’s time to learn how to draw a wolf with a spirit of a cat — the fox. Of course, there are many species of foxes, but with my tips you’ll be able to draw every existing (and imaginary) fox species.

First, the elongated, narrow main body. Divide it into fourths to keep the proportions correct.

Draw the legs of each fox, finishing them with the wiry structure of the paws.

The body will have a different perceived shape depending on the season, so keep it in mind when studying the photos. Fennec Fox

Draw a balloon being swept by the wind. This will be your fox’s head and spine.

Add 2 set of long ovals under the each circle. This will be your fox’s legs.

Fox paws look a bit like a cross between wolf and cat paws. They have non-retractable claws (pink or lightly brown), but they’re quite compact and rounded. To start, imagine you’re creating a wire sculpture of a quadrupedal animal and that you want it to stand surely on its wiry legs. Narrow loops bent flat on the ground should do the job.

Add tail and legs. Draw an irregular oval on the end of the balloon string. This would be the fox tail. Add another smaller balloon on the body, this would be the fox’s right side joint and leg. Just beside it, add a shorter line, similar to the smaller balloon string.

This will be the fox’s left side leg.

The most popular species, almost synonymous with the name “fox” is the red fox. You can treat it as a default species for a fox, with a typical head and body you can then reshape to create some other species. The muzzle is long, tapered, with the whiskers area quite far from the eye. The eyes are usually orange or light brown in color.

Enough theory! Now we’re going to draw a few foxes step by step using all the knowledge from the previous part. I want you to draw with me, but in a special way: Don’t copy the lines I draw, but instead use the tutorial to achieve the same results. This way you’ll learn how to draw a fox from imagination, not from copying someone else’s drawing.

Draw the skull and the spine. To make things easier, imagine an ice cream cone with a long curvy tail. Make sure that you are using a pencil for the draft sketch so you can erase it afterwards to make it neat.

Erase the unwanted lines and strengthen the contour with a pencil. Add in an eye and a nose.

You can, but if you do guidelines (base shapes such as circles for the base of the head that are erased in the end), be sure to use a pencil for initial sketching.

Add the volume to the forequarters and the hindquarters. They’re not very thick.

Draw three ovals over the body shape. At the end of the ovals, draw smaller ovals. These will be the legs and paws.

Add two circles at the bottom of the cylinders. This will be the fox’s feet. You should have the basic drawing skeleton right now.

Crate ragged lines across the outline of the fox to make fur.

Start by defining the position of the eyebrow and the direction of the muzzle. Keep perspective in mind!

Create a flat hump on top of each paw. This will add detail to each toe.

Erase the pencil sketch and add details. You can add details like the ears, eyes, mouth, nose and fur. You can also add extra lines to emphasize the paw and the fur.

The body is one thing, but the head requires more of our attention. Here the proportions are even more important, so don’t just copy the process I’ll be showing you—analyze the steps and try to find the relations between the elements, something you can remember later. Of course, you don’t need to repeat the steps in exactly this order every time you draw a fox. Once you know what the goal is, you can skip the steps, rearrange them, or do a few of them at the same time.

You can’t erase it, so just sketch lightly or use an erasable pen.

This was the anatomical view of a fox body. Depending on the species, age, and season, foxes may have this slender outline of the body covered with fluffy fur. In extreme cases, the fox may look like a fluffy sausage with legs!

Erase the stray and unneeded lines and make the others that are needed heavier, or outline them with marker or pen.

Finally, add the final lines over the guidelines. Don’t forget about the wrist pads (not visible in this view).

As always, let’s take a look at the skeleton of a fox first to see its proportions better. Because foxes are so similar to wolves, correct proportions are the key for a true fox look. You can remember it this way: A fox has long legs of a wolf attached to an elongated body of a cat.

Outline the shape of the fox and add facial features like small eyes, a little nose and a smiling mouth.

Add the “hands” and “feet” with paws. Defining the heels may help you add the calves later. The paws should be quite small, fitting the slender legs.

This fox got famous by its characteristic wide cheek-mane, making its face look square. It’s not the only characteristic feature of these foxes, though—to draw one, keeps its head disproportionately big. Make the eyes small, narrow, yellow in color.

Using a pen, draw on top of your sketch. Put in mind the overlapping lines and parts that should be hidden. The line art might not look perfect and crisp but it should look neat when the pencil is erased.

Fennec fox is the chihuahua of foxes. It has a tiny body with a disproportionately big head. The ears are huge, and so are the eyes. The muzzle is short, very pointed, with a tiny nose. The eyes are dark brown, so dark that the pupils are usually not visible. They’re still slit, though!


Define the length of the front of the muzzle. It’s quite short in foxes.

Notice that the fur-dots over the eyes are smaller than in wolves. Usually they’re not distinctively colored.

It’s time to learn how to draw a wolf with a spirit of a cat — the fox. Of course, there are many species of foxes, but with my tips you’ll be able to draw every existing (and imaginary) fox species.

This will be the whiskers area, an important part of a fox muzzle—it creates that cunning fox smile!

Add volume to the wrists/ankles to define the width of the limbs.

You can use more detailed lines with more pointy lines for fur. It might also help to use more time-consuming designs.

Draw a long oval (slimming it at both ends) at the end of the right side of the body. This will form the tail.

Using a pen, draw on top of your sketch. Put in mind the overlapping lines and parts that should be hidden. The lineart might not look perfect and crisp but it should look neat when the pencil is erased.

As the name implies, this animal has huge ears, comparable to fennec foxes. It has smaller eyes than fennecs, though, and the muzzle is longer. The legs are not as fluffy as the main body, so they may look very thin in comparison. The eyes are dark brown.

Color your fox. Foxes can go in different shades from orange to red.

These were so called “true foxes,” foxes from vulpes family. But there are also other canids called foxes because of their appearance, though they’re not so closely related to any of the vulpes, or to each other. I included them in this tutorial, because they are fox-like enough to draw them using the same methods.

This fox looks like a smaller version of the red fox. It has big eyes, a slightly shorter muzzle, and has a kind of puppy look to its body. The eyes can be bright yellow or brown, and the pupils are round, which is unique among foxes.

Sketch a circle in the middle of the page that is slightly squashed on one end. This will be the head of the fox.

Add the ears and the jaw. Draw 2 tall pointed arcs for the ears. Add two small circles at the inside bottom of the base of the ears. These will help you add shape to the head of the fox. Add two tilted letter L’s at the side of the triangle (ice cream cone).

It should end up looking like 3 slices of pizza left on the pan. This will be the jaw or the cheek of the fox.

You can see right from the proportions of the head the difference between a gray fox and true foxes. Its muzzle is short, and the eyes are big and dark. The head seems slightly too small for the body. This is the only fox that can climb trees!

Draw the main body, dividing it into fourths to create the shoulders, the thighs, and the body in between.

Finish the body and add a tail. Draw a small circle on the apex of the fox’s jaw. This will be its snout. Draw a wide, curvy horizontal line for the fox belly. It should connect the snout to the end of the tail.

Add a long boat-shaped figure for the fox’s tail.

Does it make a difference if you use a mechanical pencil instead of a regular one?

Draw a line from the body until you reach the “ground.” Then draw the perspective of the ground to make it a point of reference for the body.

You can try putting something like whiteout over it, but if that’s not possible, then there isn’t really anything you can do.

Practice. Learn from other artists and challenge yourself to draw each day.

This fox shares some visual similarities with a weasel, so you must be very careful not to use too many vulpes features in its head. The body is slender with almost streamline head and neck. The eyes are brown, but not very dark.

Repeat the step but on the right side of the smaller ovular shapes. This will be the lower neck .

Of course! Every artist has a different method. Some people use circles and ovals, while others can use rectangles, squares, or other shapes, such as triangles. This is why practice makes perfect; if you don’t practice, you don’t figure out what method works best for you.

You may even come up with a brand new method.

Define the flat front of the muzzle. This is more helpful than it looks!

Pens are one of the best art tools! Draw using light strokes at first, then use more pressure once you have an outline.

Try to sketch the skeleton a few times to get a good grasp of the proportions.

You don’t need to know every muscle of a fox body, but just the forms they create. Let’s build the body now, step by step, in a simplified way to remember it easier. You don’t need to use exactly the same steps to draw a fox. Instead, learn from my method to create your own, personal way.

Finish the body. At the tail of the balloon, add an oval, this would be the thigh joint. Draw a wide, curvy vertical line for the fox underside. It should connect the head to the circle.

Once you have all the guidelines in place, you can draw the details of a fox face. The eyes have a typical canine look, with clear dark outline. Surprisingly, the pupils of foxes are slit, like in cats.

Time for the ears. Foxes have them huge! (some species bigger than others)

This fox looks like a grown up pup, with its big eyes and ears. It has a slender, but very small body,   with beautifully elongated skull. Their eyes are dark brown, though not as dark as in fennecs.

Connect the paws with the wrist/ankle. That bridge between them must have a 3D volume as well. Don’t forget abut the dew claw on the inner side of the front paws.

Add another set of ovals under the hind legs’ cylinders. This will be your fox’s lower legs. Fox hind legs are longer and bent when compared on the ones on the front.

Generally, you get a softer looking line with a regular pencil because the lead is thicker than that of a mechanical pencil. That’s about it.

Add the neck, the tail, the chest details, and the stretchy skin between the limbs and the body. It’s not always necessary to draw them all, but make sure you know that they are here.
