Inari Fox by blix-it Inari Fox by blix-it
Sketch is here if you like looking at sketches.

Daniel Smith Watercolors
Prisma Colored Pencils
Arches 140lb Cold Press Paper


This painting will be in Bear and Bird Gallery's small work's show!
Info: [link]
Lauderhill, Florida
This looks like such a nice gallery to me, I'm so pleased I get to be part of their small works show. X3
some photos: [link]
It just looks like the sort of place I would enjoy being! Colorful and warm and full of art and comics.

This piece was inspired by *Cinnamoron drawing her own fox under a torii gate. [link] <3 THEN I WANTED TO DRAW ONE TOO. So here is another Inari fox, creeping down to a field of grain to either bless or steal it.

----------------------------

ps. self plug time. I decided recently to start using Furaffinity and Weasyl! I've never tried animal specific galleries. Soooo. I'm going to try it now! I am storyofthedoor on both Furaffinity and Weasyl.

I'm always so in awe of your style when you do pieces like this. I was looking at the one I bought from you at AX that was fanart of Legend of Korra. There's always something new to look at in your work when you do the water color and colored pencil pieces.

Yay for foxes! I love how you gave him a little mask. And I think he's running down the hillside to go party with my fox. Then they will run around doing mischievous things until Inari tells them they should act better. XD

I hope this does well at Bear and Bird! Is the original going up for sale there?

lol i live like 10 minutes away from there! i always go there. i love the gallery. i even had stuff there before. i'll definitely will have to go see it ^^ Will you be there the opening?

Oh wow, you'll get to be there?! Unfortunately I won't be. 8( I'd have to buy a plane ticket, which is too expensive. But I wish I could be! This gallery seems to me - even though I've never seen it - like a nice place. Not super up tight, open to all sorts of work. Also, affiliated with a comic shop. <3 I wish I could be there. ><

Aw I wish you could be there too! But I understand. Tate's is an awesome place. and the gallery section, even though it's relatively small, it always has some awesome artwork there. and the family that runs the place is really nice. If you want, if I'm able to go, I'll go the opening and take pictures send them to you ^^

yes absolutely please do take photos! I didn't have a chance to take any pictures of my work before I sent it, and I WAS pretty happy with the framing and mats. They were nice looking. ><

Mrrrrr I'm kind of jealous that most of Tate's shows are limited to Florida artists! There photos usually look nice, filled with some good stuff.

Ok, I'll definitely go and take pictures if I can go on opening day and send them to you ^^

Yea, It's sad that Tate's limits their shows to South Floridians but I guess its because shipping is pretty expensive... It's cheaper it display artist who can drop off and pick up their artwork in person :p

I hope that one day you'll be able to visit Tate's and see their gallery. It was is a nice and cozy place ^_^

oh, haha, I think that's more a property of the color blue when opposed against vibrant orange than any use of artistic skill. Misty distances and all that. :3 Thanks for enjoying the picture.

Gorgeous painting. I love the warm colors... :D

How do you get the lines so smooth? I understand that to get a an eededge you have to be putting the paint down on dry paper?
Reply
:iconblix-it:
blix-it Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
geez I just don't know how to describe the process. It's just dry paper and layers of paint. Put down an area of paint. Let it dry. Paint another area of paint over that, let it dry. Sometimes add more water to a pigment, sometimes take water away with a towel. One day I'll use this nice webcam to video my process, but I need better lighting for anything to be visible. Plus also afraid of fucking up on video.
