In this drawing tutorial I will tell you how to draw an arctic fox step by step. This is a really simple guide to help you create cool art right now.
The Arctic fox is a great drawing object. This is a funny and cute animal that lives in very cold climates. For survival, this animal has acquired many unusual features of its appearance. For example, it is a long, elongated body, white fur, and sharp claws.
You may encounter slight difficulties when trying to work with colors. White is pretty difficult to depict on white paper, isn’t it? To solve this problem, you need to use light shades of blue or gray. If you want a more intricate design, you can create textures like animal fur or add highlights. However, I prefer the beginner’s approach and therefore only use the simplest shapes and lines.

How to Draw an Arctic Fox
- Draw the front of the fox’s face.
Depict a rounded shape on the left side of the piece of paper.
- Add the outlines of the head.
Circle the shape from the previous step as in my reference.
- Add the outlines of the ears.
It looks like two semicircles and one triangle.
- Draw the eyes and nose.
Pay attention to the position of these shapes in relation to the already drawn lines of the head and ears.
- Draw the outline of the fox’s body.
Try to draw a horizontal oval like in my reference.
- Draw the fox’s paws.
Use smooth lines with slight curves.
- Finish drawing the paws.
Add two more paws that are further away from us.
- Depict a large tail.
Rounded large tails are a distinctive feature of these animals.
- Color the arctic fox.
As I said, a few areas of light blue give the illusion of a thick white coat.

In summer, the arctic fox darkens a little, and this coloration allows it to be better camouflaged. The arctic fox builds long burrows, expanding and cleaning them regularly.
