Foxy Foxes

I've been seeing a lot of foxes on the internet, especially tumblr and I had this drawing spree of foxes a couple of months ago, so I kind of suspected that maybe red fox was my new spirit animal. I talked about my spirit animals before which are wolf and stag deer.
 
But a couple of days ago I realized the fox is not my spirit animal but my boy's. He had these new socks on that have a red fox on the front and when I mentioned it to my hubby he said there are foxes on the skis as well that he got from our neighbor that day because her kids have already outgrown them. 

I was never drawn to foxes before apart from meeting a couple of them crossing the road on two different occasions on my way home at night. This weird attraction started after my boy was born. I even painted a fox for him purely by accident. 

When he was only a couple of months old he had this fascination with my paintings on the wall. They seem to sooth him so my hubby said I need to paint one just for him. I wasn't going to paint a whimsical girl for him so after a while I thought of painting a fox which felt right to me. It needed to be colorful for him as my boy was and still is drawn to bright colors, especially orange. So I found an old background and I painted the fox. :)
He's growing so fast.

Bunch of Dogz

So I had to draw some dogs and I realized that I liked drawing them more than cats. I found them really easy to draw especially the top 3 where I used Adirondack ink backgrounds. I didn't even need to color them in some places, I just shaded.
The above ones were made for swaps, the below two were a personal trade.
I had to draw some Great Pyrenees dogs for 3 different PATs but for the same person. :) Hope she likes them. There's not many ways you can draw a white dog. My fave though is the brown one with glasses.
Another Round Robin. I started this set with a dog, kynara added the bowl with ice cream and mcgillisj finished it with ice cream truck and background. How awesome is this?! :)
We wanted to take a mini vacation but our reservations fell through twice so I took it as a sign the Universe doesn't want me going anywhere. :) We did go to the beach for a day as it was originally planned and it was baby boy's first. Of course we took pictures. :)

Sea Creatures

This carousel squid was for a PAT, pick-a-theme swap, and so was the octopus below but for a different PAT.
And some random seahorses. The right one I made for the SOC challenge. Colors: 2 oranges + 1 blue
Our baby boy is growing and teething. :) Looks like the first ones to come out will be the upper threes. He'll be a little vampire.

Fishy, fishy

Mcgillisj started this set with a goldfish, I added the black fish and Linda4atc finished it with the background. Have you noticed I freaking love Round Robins? :)
Betta and Clownish I made for a personal trade.
Round Robin started by  Linda4atc, I added the shark and Miss M finished it wonderfully with fish and ocean.
Colors: 2 greens + 1 pink for SOC challenge.
Baby's got a new ride. :) I love taking pictures of him when he's making faces. :)

Monochromatic PAT

Long time ago there was a Monochromatic PAT swap. I actually joined 2 groups. First one had 2 in ORANGE, birds & mermaids. The other 2 were in RED, something alive (bat) and cat.

For the other group three of them were in RED and one in ORANGE. :) Themes were Monster Sheep, Surreal, Steampunk and Artist's choice. Owl and mermaid above and bunny below actually have bright neon orange eyes but the scanner didn't pick that up.

I had leftover backgrounds from something I thought was going to turn out awesome but it didn't so much. :) They came in handy for this swap.

Colors: 2 reds + 1 metallic for SOC challenge. Done on the steampunk owl above. I added metallic pen to the glasses and around eyes.
