Circle of life - fox by Woodswallow Circle of life - fox by Woodswallow
Edit: The second half of this work Circle of life - hare by Woodswallow

The complete piece is for sale Circle of life (complete) by Woodswallow
Note me when interested!

Acrylics on pheasant feathers.
Finally got this done in February, and got some decent photos of it now.

This is one half of a bigger artwork, the other half will follow the next days. It depicts a hare and the piece is about hunting and being hunted, the never ending circle of life.
Had this lying around here for half a year and finally finished it weeks ago. I'm really fond about how this whole thing turned out, I will upload a photo of the complete piece as well.

Reference was this magical picture: The Catcher in the Rye

You did so well!! And from a front angle even, that is the hardest angle to draw fox faces from, in my opinion! How do you get the feathers to stay in place?

Thank you so much :) Yes, heh, I was surprised as well that the front pose turned out so well...I had prepared for a longer fight XD
I glue them together on the edges where they overlap, quite simple :) Before painting, you can fixate them with clear varnish...but it did it after painting, to protect the paint.

Well then you must be getting better at doing front poses better, then! I'm impressed, it is very hard to paint on an uneven surface.
