Den norske fjellreven by BlackMysticA Den norske fjellreven by BlackMysticA
The Arctic fox of Norway - called fjellrev. A few of them live scattered over the Norwegian tundras and are endangered here. Attempts to breed pups in special breeding stations and release them in the wild are one of the projects the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research is active in.

I recently saw a program on television about arctic foxes in Norway and got - next to more ideas- the impulsive idea to draw one. But also more scandinavian wildlife like reindeer, eagles, wolverines, smaller martens and whatever you find in the scandinavian nature is on my list to draw.

Made with Adobe photoshop CS2 in approx. 3 hours - kinda speed painting. I didn't focus too much on details.

Takk takk! Hehe det er bare å øve,øve,øve og enda mer øve- og det tar masse tid. Men det viktigste er jo å være motivert og å ha en viss 'pasjon' for art :) Bare prøv - så at du allerede er veldig flink!

Flott fjellrev. I Oslo, så har vi bare brun rev fra Marokko. ;) Du har vært kjempeflink, men jeg synes at teksten ødelegger helhetsinntrykket da det ser så unaturlig ut. Ta bort datoen så blir fjellreven tid tidløs. Fjern gradient overlay fra teksten og gjør om tekstfargen til ren hvit eller bruk #b0cfec. Bruk fonten 'Letter Gothic Std' i 20 pt. størrelse og plasser teksten nederst i høyre hjørne. :)

Trøndere burde prate engelsk alle mainn.

Brun rev fra Marokko? Ikke bare den vanlige rødreven som finnes i nesten hele verden? Visste ikke at det finnes andre slags rever i Norge også. Ha men tekster er mer eller mindre å måte til å unngå at folk stjeler tegningene mine. Det skjer dessvare altfor mye på DA...og hvis jeg har en tekst underpå tegningen min, så gjør jeg det i min stil og så stor at det er ikke så lett å slette teksten med ett eller annet photoshop triks ^^ Men ja jeg er enig i at teksten faktisk ødelegger tegningen - og jeg skal tenke på en annen måte å beskytte min kunst mot kunst-tyveri. I hvert fall takk for meningen din! Det hjelper alltid å høre hva folk syns om tegninene mine.
Ha ja jeg har flyttet fra Nederland til Norge og det var veldig vanskelig å lære meg norsk der man snakker trøndersk - Trøndere må virkelig lære å snakke bokmål også, særlig bussjåfører. Men det er jo alltid morsomt å høre på fort snakkende Trøndere haha.

Du ser da ut som en smart jente som kan bruke google. Jeg innbiller meg at det finnes andre måter å beskytte kunstverk på enn den destruktive løsningen. De som stjeler vil uansett aldri oppnå suksess da de aldri utvikler sine talenter. Jeg har heldigvis ikke det problemet da mine talenter ligger helt andre steder enn i Photoshop. :) Har du egen facebook side for tegningene dine også? Jeg er ikke så ofte innom DA.

To be honest, I don't really care for foxes, but you are so skilled.
*sees translator* I wouldn't have known. I was right that it's Norwegian your native language, which I don't know.

I didn't know then that you're Dutch. Epica and Within Temptation, who are Dutch, are two of my favourite bands ^_^
What other languages do you know how to speak?
Also, this isn't mine, but I recommend it because you like Artic Foxes:

Jeg så en levende i fjor. Jeg bare lå på gresset og plutselig så jeg noe ved siden av meg. Tok meg et par minutter for å se at det var en levende lemmen. Hadde satt meg rett ved hulen dens. Var veldig søt.

De er nok det, men siden det var bare en. Den løp inn i hulen sin igjen og hadde jeg puttet fingeren inn der så hadde den nok bitt meg. Men da hadde det vært min feil også da.

Really nice piece - love the fluid trotting pose and the shading of the fur and subtle muscle and tendon details. :love: :heart:
This may have been a quick piece, but the bg and the fox still look great - love the face detail and anatomy too. <3 I can't wait to see if you draw some martens - I absolutely ADORE mustelids! :dummy:
