2. Draw a wide "U" shaped line overlapping the top of the head. Then, draw curved lines from the ends of the "U" to the circle, enclosing rounded triangles. These will form the fox's ears. Draw a wide "U" shaped line beneath the circle, and connect it to the circle using short curved lines connected in jagged points. This forms the fox's muzzle and jaw.

9. Detail the fox's face and body. Enclose triangles within each ear to form the inner ear. Use short lines to add the texture of fur to the ears, face, chest, and tail. Draw a rounded shape to form the eyes, and shade darkened points on each side. Use a curved line across each eye to form the eyelid, and a shaded circle within a circle to indicate the pupils. Enclose curved shapes for the eyebrows and a rounded shape for the nose. Use a curved "W" shaped line to indicate the mouth.

Learn More About The Arctic Fox Drawing

The arctic fox is also known as the white fox, snow fox, or polar fox. It lives in the cold northern polar regions of the world. In times past, it has been sought after for the beauty of its snow white fur.

Arctic foxes eat both meat and plants. They live in burrows in the ground, and are active during the day and night.

Arctic foxes are capable of withstanding freezing temperatures that many other animals could not. It is the only dog whose foot pads are covered in fur, and it is known to wrap its tail around itself in order to keep warm.
