Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing a circle. This will form the head of the fox.
In the circle, draw two curved lines.
Connect the lines using two curved, “U” shaped curves. Draw another curved line below the first two. This will form the fox’s snout.
Remove the guide line from the muzzle.
Draw an irregular circle inside the muzzle to form the nose. Connect the nose to the mouth and the sides of the snout using three short, curved lines.
Draw fur on the fox’s neck and chest. Start by extending a curved line from the muzzle. Then use a series of short, curved lines that extend downwards and meet at sharp, jagged points.
Repeat this process on the opposite side, forming an upside down triangle.
Draw the fur on each side of the fox’s head by extending short curved lines that meet into jagged points from each side of the circle.
Delete the guides created by the original circle.
Draw ears. For each ear, extend two curved lines upwards from the top, allowing the lines to meet at rounded points.
Erase the guide lines from the ear.
Outline the body by extending a series of curved lines diagonally from the head and chest. Allow the lines to meet at jagged points to form the details of the fur.
Footprints. From the triangular tuft of hair on the chest, extend two curved lines downwards. From the shoulders, extend a series of curves, allowing for a jagged fur detail in the top part. At the base of the body, draw the hind legs in a sitting position by drawing an open circle. Add some jagged detail to the top of the open circle. Below it, extend a set of curved lines to form the hind legs.
Connect the foot lines by drawing the toes on each foot. To draw the toes, use a series of connected “U” shaped lines.
Add fur detail to your fox. Draw a curved line the length of each ear and add jagged fur detail at its base. Draw short serrated lines across the chest, over the shoulders, and through the top of each front leg.
Draw a series of short and long curved lines, meeting at points, through the lower part of the body. This begins to form the tail.
Use a series of curved lines to enclose the tail, starting at the base of the back.
Using short and curved lines, draw a serrated zigzag across the tip of the tail. Draw a curved triangle at the tip of each toe to form the claw. Shade the claws.
Draw a flattened circle on each side of the nose to form the eyes. In each eye, draw a small circle within a large circle. Shade the area between the two circles. Draw a curved line above each eye to form the eyebrows.
Color your fox. The familiar red fox is usually red or orange with white or cream markings, but other foxes come in a variety of colors, including white, brown, black, and gray.
