Fox (Mary Poppins) by FreezingIceKirby Fox (Mary Poppins) by FreezingIceKirby
Hey, FreezingiceKirby's still alive!  It's been over two months since I last drew something... apologies to my watchers out there. :tears:

This character is a fox, who unfortunately does not have a name.  He originated from the Disney film "Mary Poppins", and is a part of the sequence where Mary, Bert, and the kids enter the chalk drawing on the sidewalk.  When found, he was being chased by foxhounds and hunters when Bert decided to step in and save his life.  He stuck by the four until a rainstorm washed away the chalk drawing and the imaginary realm had to come to an end.  

(Also, he's suppose to look shaggy... at least, that's how he looked like in the movie... perhaps I went a bit too overboard?)

I think the pic came out... alright.  Probably many errors here and there, and things could've turned out better... but hey, not too shabby for someone whose artistic skills grew pretty rusty over those two months. I just hope I don't go such a lengthy time without drawing again. :(


========
EDIT~

- Applied some changes to the ears, also straightened a few lines.
- Brightened his colors to make the outline stand out more.
- Lightened the cel shading.

You got Fox's looks down pat, and I love the way you colored him. Keep up the great work, my friend! Oh, and the anatomy is excellent! The pose you chose is very comical to me, which is perfect for this character. :)

Thanks for the compliment!  I was worried he wouldn't turn out right, since I hadn't drawn in such a while... but I'm glad it turned out alright in the end. :nod:

I know that feeling, and you have nothing to worry about in this case! :D

Ah, well, I couldn't go very long without commenting on a fox. ;)  Nice one--I recall this guy, though "Mary Poppins" wasn't a favorite...naturally, I preferred the animated sequences to most everything else.  The image on the whole is a little hard to read--perhaps brighten it some--but that's all I'd say from critical view.  What a welcome throwback! :clap:

While I do like the movie and think Julie Andrews was just down-right fantastic in it... I have to admit, it's not a favorite of mine, either.  Granted, I like it, and I do like some of the musical sequences (Step in Time)... but I don't know, I felt it should've been better in spots.  The film has a nasty habit of not knowing when to move on, and while re-watching it again last night, I found myself looking at some scenes and going "Okay, time to move on now...".  Not only that, but the first half just kinda drags... I feel like I only really start to enjoy it during the latter half.  Ahh well... still a fun movie. 

Also, I took your advice and brightened up his colors.  He looked pretty drab before... I do think the change improves it, but I'm not sure if it was enough to fix the problem.  In any case, thanks for the advice. :nod:

Yeah, I think the whole "Julie Andrews" thing is another factor that bothers me.  I like her, and as great as she was in the film,  I tend to think that Dick Van Dyke was her equal in every way--plus, physically, he did way more than her, which is one of the many case histories I have against the Academy.  He should have had some recognition for that one.

Yep, "Step In Time" is bar none one of my most favorite sequences...particularly when the father comes in and finds the house loaded with chimney sweeps!

Housekeeper: It's the Master!

Sweeps: "It's the Master!" Step in time! "It's the Master!" Step in time!

Sir: What's all this?

Sweeps: "What's all this?" "What's all this?" "What's all this?" "What's all this?"

:lol:

But, honestly, I rate it alongside "Bedknobs And Broomsticks" on the overall quality factor.

Hey, nice to see this guy popping up again. This guy probably gets new art every once in a blue moon. I think the shagginess is appropriate and well done.
