o.o Wow, this is amazing! You make me so jealous of your coloring skillz! XD
Would you mind if I drew from the photo a pen and ink version? I'd give you credit for showing me the photo, and I'd also site your drawing if I upload the ink fox to DA x3

:shrug: Sure. I don't see any problem with that as long as your piece is distinct enough to not be confused with my piece at thumbnail-resolution. :nod:

Do you still have the original photo that I could look off of? If you don't want any one on DA to steal it, would you rather send it to me through e mail?

Thanks again, and yes, it would differ quite a bit... I have no coloring skillz, but I'm pretty nifty with pen and ink :3

Actually, I don't have an original photo to send you. You are welcome to reference my art piece directly, but I looked at a few different photos before drawing this piece.

Other than that, there are a lot of very good photos of foxes in the stock images gallery. Quite a few show a clear view of the eyes. [link] [link] Also, I have found that most of the nature photographers do not mind traditional artists referencing their photos, as long as the artist asks first.

I've been enjoying doing these ACEOs because they only take 2-5 hours, even with that much detail. My realistic art normally takes 10-40 hours. I actually really enjoy doing the details. It almost becomes meditative, but it's nice to finish a few things quickly.
