This is my very first drawing of an animal with fur!
I like foxes, hence why I chose this as my subject.
I like the way it came out, so I definitely will be developing my skill in this area.

Any critiques or advice are more than welcome!

I first see the eyes of the fox, the dark outline on the eyes as well as the ears make them stick out in the view well. The eyes lead to the nose with the grain of the fur. Secondly I see the holly branch, the green and bright red pop against the brown/red/white of the fox.

I enjoy the style of the fox, the fur is very realistic, the eyes and ears are also very realistic. The ears have a huge amount of detail, almost making them the focus.

I feel that the holly bough contrasts the fox altogether too much, the bright green/red and also the placement takes away from the main focus of the drawing (the fox). The bough and the snow are also a bit of a different style, which contrasts the realism of the fox. I also feel like the fur around the eyes/nose could have more detail, as the ears do, to give them more of a focus point.

Overall I enjoy the piece, the fox is done well, the technique is very well done, the fur is realistic and the ears and eyes are amazing. The holly bough takes away from the main point of the drawing, but I feel like it still fits the theme, so it is not completely out of place in the piece. Nice work on the fur!

This is my favorite combination, fox and holly.  15 years ago I had a dream about a fox with a holly wreath around it's neck.  Our last name is Fox, it inspired me to name my daughter that I was carrying Holly.  I've made many Christmas ornaments with foxes and Holly on since.  Very nice drawing!

This is adorable! I love foxes too, they're such interesting animals :) I like the use of the medium too. As for constructive crits, I think maybe a more pronounced shadow under the head could give it a more 3D look. But it's still a great piece!
