There are more than forty species of foxes spread throughout the world. In many cultures, foxes are known for their cunning and trickiness, and are often the subject of mythology and folklore. The fox is actually a small species of dog, but foxes have abilities other dogs lack, such as digging complete burrows in the ground and climbing trees.
In recent years, the silver subspecies of the red fox has been domesticated in Russia. Interestingly, domestic foxes begin showing traits common to many domestic dogs, such as floppy ears, and changes in coloration, including spots.

In this simple, step-by-step drawing guide, you will learn to draw your very own fox. You will need only a drawing implement, such as a pen or pencil, and a piece of paper. You may also want to have an eraser handy, as you will be erasing some of your early lines as you go along.
In each step of this easy drawing tutorial, you will notice that previously drawn lines are shown in black, while new lines are highlighted in blue. When you complete your drawing, you can shade it using crayons, colored pencils, or markers.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Fox
Connect the lines using two “U” shaped, curved lines. Draw another curved line beneath the first two. This will form the fox’s snout.
Draw an irregular rounded shape within the snout to form the nose. Connect the nose to the mouth and sides of the snout using three short, curved lines.
Outline the legs. From the triangular tuft of fur on the chest, extend two curved lines downward. From the shoulder, extend a series of curved lines, allowing a jagged fur detail to form at the top. At the base of the body, draw the rear leg in a sitting position by drawing an open circular figure. Add some jagged fur detail to the top of the open circle. Beneath it, extend a set of curved lines to form the rear foot.
Add furry detail to your fox. Draw a curved line down the length of each ear, and add jagged fur detail at its base. Draw short, jagged lines through the chest, across the shoulder, and across the top of each foreleg.
Draw a flattened circle on each side of the nose to form the eyes. Within each eye, draw a tiny circle within a large circle. Shade the area between the two circles. Draw a curved line above each eye to form eyebrows.
