"The winter fox"

I've been waiting for this day when I'll get to submit this work over here, depending on how productive I'd feel... which means today I got myself to colour the last part, the fox. Trying to choose between watercolours and colour pencils I ended up with crayons instead. I'm not entirely sure if I'm satisfied with the result (the fox), but I guess it's okay.
This is a commission for a relative, by the way. I hate it when it comes to commissions I'm hopelessly slow. I wonder how many years did this take... one? Two? Really, I'm not even kidding.

Dip pen and ink, crayons

I like it very much, the fox is like on fire, a small tongue of flame in cold snow. Fantastic!

I love how you've created a soft, misty, snowy effect with something so solid and unforgiving as ink.

By far my favorite piece of art I've seen today. It looks so peaceful, exactly like a drawing of a snowy woods should feel. Just perfect.

I feel your pain with commissions. There is even more pressure for it to be just perfect. But your choice of crayon for the fox was great, don't know how the original looks but the digital version here it looks perfect. I love the pop of colour. If I were you, I would make this my Christmas card. I almost want to buy this so I can use it. I just love it.

Yeah, the pressure is awful... which is just my very own fault. I'm really glad to hear the crayon works well, though! Thank you. (:
