How to Draw A Fox Worksheet

The printable how to draw a fox worksheet is an easy project for the beginner artist. Think of the fox as a small dog with a big bushy tale, big ears, long muzzle and small eyes.  Parents, teachers and homeschool families will be able to use this in class and at home.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out perfect do not get discouraged, learning to draw takes practice so draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects.

To print the drawing worksheet highlight it and send it to your printer. Some people find it helps to drag the worksheet to their desktop first and print from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above for help, or try one of the updated links below.

Begin to make the outline by drawing basic shapes to get the form right. Draw lightly so you can erase later on.

The head starts as a circle on the shoulder of the body. On top of the head put two large triangles, they are close together. The body is an irregular rectangle that is taller at the shoulder.

Draw a line on the ground so all the legs are the same length; this line can be the shadow underneath the fox when you are done. The back legs are like bent triangles shaped like a backwards letter "S." The front legs are very thin triangles they have a slight bend at the elbow which is high up by the shoulder. The feet are circles at the bottoms. (If you have problems with the feet draw the fox in high grass and hide the feet.)

Once you are happy with the basic shape go over it again with a darker pencil and erase the extra lines.

Use a guideline down the center of the head, and another guideline across the center forming a large + sign this helps keep things even. Thy eyes are below the cross mark. They are small circles outlined by almond shaped eyelids.

The nose is a triangle pointing down and rounded on the corners. It is at the end of a narrow muzzle. The mouth is only a straight line across. The chin is a small line shaped like the letter "U" but not as wide as the nose.

The cheek fur goes out and down. There is fur in the ears that puffs out. The fur on the body lays down pointing back toward the tail.

The tail is almost as long as the body and almost as wide.

Foxes come in many colors, brown, white, cinnamon, grey and black. Add shadow underneath and under the chin. Put shadow on the far rear leg, and a shadow on the ground.
