Step 6: Draw two angled lines under the body (one below each circle) as guides for the arctic fox's legs. Arctic foxes have short legs, so don't draw the lines too long.
Step 7: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the arctic fox's body and tail. The guide for the tail is similar to a big U-shaped arc with a diagonal orientation on the left side of the body.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 8: Draw the eyes inside the arctic fox's head using the lines as guides for placement. The shape of the eyes is similar to a football. Draw it lightly at first to get the shape right. Draw a tiny circle inside each eye to represent glare. Foxes have vertically oriented pupils like cats, so draw a thin slit inside each eye for the pupils. Draw a couple of lines on the sides of the arctic fox's eyes to form the actual eyeball and shade the rest of the eye. Use a value that is lighter than the pupil to shade the rest of the eye. Draw a few small lines around the eyes for extra detail.
Step 9: Draw the arctic fox's nose inside the muzzle using the lines and small circle as guides. First lightly sketch an oval. Then darken the top part and draw curved lines on the sides for the nostrils. Darken the bottom part and add a small line to split the nose.
