How to Draw a Blue Fox - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Start by drawing the head. It looks like a very wide "U" shape with two hooks at the very top to make the ears.
Step 2: Just above the bottom curve draw a short curved line to make the snout. Inside the curve draw a circle. This is the nose. Above the nose draw two oval shaped eyes.
Step 3: Next draw the body. It is almost a circle right around the head. It starts at the bottom left side of the head line and curves up and around the head. It ends at the bottom of the right side of the head.
Step 4: Just under the left side of the head draw the front leg. There are two short lines. There is a paw at the bottom of the leg. Draw two short lines to make the toes.
Step 5: To the right of that leg draw another leg the same width and length as the first one. The toes are marked by two short curved lines on the paw.
Step 6: Just to the right of the second front leg draw a short line down. Draw another short line across to join with the right side of the second leg. Add short lines on the paw to make the toes.
Step 7: Just to the right of the back leg draw a curved "J" line to the right. Bend it back up and join it with the right bottom side of the body.
Step 8: Finally, draw the fur patterns. There is a round half circle over the top of the head. There are two long lines from the ears to the nose. Draw some short curvy lines in the ears.
