Red Fox Painting by CatBeast17 Red Fox Painting by CatBeast17
I had recently found some good painting paper in my basement and I decided to try it out. This is my first real painting of something and I do say, I am pleased with how it turned out. This is also a Christmas present for all of my freinds on DA:dance:
Just a little something for all of you to enjoy :aww: Hope you like!
Merry Christmas!

Done in acrylic paint, using 4 colors. Here's the pic that this is based off 2.bp.blogspot.com/_9TKoaOHrkz4…

EDIT:--
I want to thank you all for the faves and views, I'm proud to say that this is the most popular piece in my gallery :aww:

Critique by ImaginationOfMine Oct 31, 2011, 3:30:23 PM
This is absolutely beautiful. I have been wanting to write a critique lately, and there isn't a better choice for my first critique. Anyway, on with it! I love this. I adore how the colors seem to blend together and don't stand out. I adore the eyes and the whiskers, I can never get the eyes right on my own drawings and I applaud you for them here! I looked at the picture reference, and you did an amazing job capturing the photo. Overall this is an instant favorite for any viewer who sees it. I look forward to see what other masterpieces you have lying around your gallery.
What do you think?

This is such a lovely painting; I adore the warm colours and the way the eyes stand out! Very nice blending and fur texture too :D (Big Grin)

This seems to be a favorite among many people, though it was drawn FIVE YEARS AGO.

Lol, jk, I'm still very glad that so many like it :hug: It's just more inspiration to continue to create pieces like this :) So thank you for the compliments! :heart:

Wow, it still gets me every time. This painting is nearly four years old, and it still gets twice the attention then my other work :XD: But...it IS one of my favorite pieces that I've ever done, I'll have to admit :meow: Again, thank you! :D

Yes, yes I have :) I do like the fox (obviously), but I do like to try different animals form time to time. I have drawn a lion, done a watercolor painting of a cheetah, and a digital drawing of tiger. All of which can be found in my gallery ;)
And thank you for the compliment, much appreciated! ~ :heart:

That's beautiful! Look at those eyes ... Funny though, I thought foxes had round pupils. Guess you learn something new every day, huh? :)

Oh wow, this thing is so old (3 years, to be precise) :XD: I must do some newer art like this sometime, this reminds me.

Thank you very much! :D And yes, the red fox's pupils are slit, like a cat's :) And oh yes, that you do my friend! :)

So I stumbled upon a vintage piece, did I? :D Still as beautiful though.

And that really had me intrigued. Is it the only 'dog' to have slit pupils? I can't remember ever seeing another species. African jackals may look similar to foxes but they have round pupils .. I'm really curious now as to why the European fox does not. :)

:iconcatbeast17:
CatBeast17 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That you did :D And again, thank you very much! :hug:

And yes, from what I know, the fox is the only member of the dog family to have these slit pupils. They share many similarities with cats, that has earned them the nickname, "the cat-like dog". Another thing that I find to be quite interesting is that both grey and red foxes posses slightly-retractable claws, sometimes used for climbing trees (though the grey fox is much more likely to exploit this ability).

The European red fox? They have slit pupils just like their "normal" U.S red fox counterparts :)

You're welcome. :)

That's really curious! But they are a 'dog' species though, aren't they? I mean, they didn't have some feline relative far back along the evolutionary tree or something? I never heard that about the claws either, that's even more curious.

Yes well I mean as opposed to African canines, he he. Eh, well perhaps this whole thing isn't so strange when I think about it. I think most African felines have round pupils whereas the common cats do not. Which is also rather interesting. :) I wonder what caused the divergent evolution in the first place.

Very nice. I wonder what's going through this fox's mind, perhaps a strategy to outfox another predator.

Thank you kindly! :) :la:
I'm sorry to say, but I don't do requests anymore, and art trades are for people I know well (and are good freinds with) on DA :( But I do do commissions, and I am very flexiable with price ranges that fit your budget :) I'm sorry if I disappointed you in any way, but if I did every request I got, I would be a very exhausted artist :XD:
