The golden fox by Heliocyan The golden fox by Heliocyan
I have abandoned the owl I was working on to spontaneously paint a fox! I haven't painted soft fur for a long time. :) For some reason, the animal looks much older than I had intended. 
Oil and gold leaf on paper, 9" x 6" 

Prints are available here: www.etsy.com/shop/heliocyan

The original will be for sale once it's dried, please contact me should you be interested in purchasing it. I have a solo art show coming up at a gallery in the UK at the end of March, and I need as many new paintings and prints as I can manage until then. Of course, I will not stop any of my friends here to grab originals before they will be shown to the public...

OH wow... that looks so great and realistic. One of the best fox drawings I've seen. Wow! I really think traditional is always the best when it comes to these artworks *-* (although digital are also great)

Thank you so much!! Yes, I do love both as well. I think it's sad that some traditional artists have such dislike towards digital art, it's both great! :)

Wow, gorgeous. Love how you made the fur a mixture of white and orange-brown. And the texture that you pulled off... Very nice.
