I decided to draw one of one of my favourite animals, a fox. What other woodland creature has more character than a fox after all? :)
I started off by playing around with the colours I wanted to use and sketching out my idea. I decided to use some acrylic paper as the texture will work nicely with the pens I’m going to use!
I used the lovely bright Cadmium Orange Twin Graphic pen to apply my main base colour for the fox. I then started working over it, applying small patches of colour with the Brown, Burnt Sienna and Cool Grey Twin Graphic pens. I looked up plenty of references of foxes so I knew where the markings should go!
I hope you enjoyed this blog post and that it encourages you to experiment with different pen types! You never know what fun effects you’ll find while using them!
