This little Arctic Fox Pup was done in graphite on Strathmore Bristol, vellum surface. Hope you like him!
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

ahhh, the secret to all things good .....  ;)
 
..... went to look at him again, the fur work is amazing, seems I can just feel how soft he is and how thick his coat is, great job  :)

I was reading about different 'Bristol Boards' today and so, this drawing is interesting and, the fact Lillian likes the Strathmore Bristol makes it even more so.
Your Roxy looks great  :clap: Have you enjoyed drawing it and how long has it taken?[size=78%] [/size]
