Genesis 1:24 And God said, let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds.I found this adorable photo of these two sibling foxes in a 2015 Audubon calender. So full credit for photo goes to them and their photographer Daniel M. Jones.
So often, for Genesis 1, we see the world shape. I wanted to focus on a different verse and when I read verse 24 I knew I wanted to draw some cute animals! =)
To start I traced the basic outline of the foxes and the main lines such as the eyes, nose, mouth. All the fur outlines I drew afterwards. For this project I started with a sheet of graphite paper and my drawing (you will be using the PDF I've made for you) Turn to your bible page and place your graphite sheet face down and make sure it stays in place. After you have cut your image out from your PDF file then use some washi tape to tape your image to the back of your graphite paper.
Then begin to trace your image. I find that a ball point pen works best. You can also use a different color pen to see where you have already drawn.
I used the photo as my guide for color!
I usually like to start with the eyes!
Then filled in some darks.
Then started in on some earthy browns.
I used a fine pen to swish on some wiskers!
I used some white acrylic paint and a tiny paintbrush to add some highlights in places.
This is where I drew on the verse words.
Then I went over it with my drawing pens.
Colored in some letters and used a metallic pen on the word GOD.
Close up of these two cuties!
There are simple instructions on the PDF for transferring the images to your bible.
