Step 10: Inside each eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of each eye, draw the pupils using a dark value. Foxes have cat-like pupils, so draw them as thin slits. Shade in the rest of the eyes but don't overlap the small circle that represents glare. As you shade the eyeballs, use a value that's lighter than the pupils. Draw a series of quick, short strokes around the eyes for the fur.
Step 11: Draw the fox's nose inside the muzzle, near the left side, by first lightly sketching a small oval. When you get the size and placement of the oval right, darken the lines. Curve the sides inward to create the nostrils. Add a short, vertical line at the bottom to split the nose. Make the bottom pointier and add quick, short strokes at the top for the fur.
Step 12: Draw a long, wavy horizontal line under the nose for the mouth. The fox's mouth should stretch from one side of the initial circle to the other. Follow the path of the initial circle on the left side and darken the line to create the side of the muzzle. Use quick, short strokes to draw a curved line under the mouth for the fuzzy chin.
Step 13: Use quick, short strokes along the path of the triangle-like shape on the right to create the fox's first ear. Add a few longer strokes within the ear for the fur found there and a few extra lines for structure.
Step 14: Use the triangle-like shape on the left side as a guide to draw the fox's other ear the same way. Use quick, short strokes as you follow the path of the guide for a furry texture and add strokes inside too.
