Stunning Red Fox Illustrations Using Watercolors and Ink

With all of the fancy software available to artists and illustrators these days, it's wonderfully refreshing when you spot work that's made in more traditional ways. Saint Petersburg, Russia-based artist Alice Macarova recently completed a new project called Vulpes Vulpes, a triptych featuring adorable red foxes. As the 22-year-old told us, “I chose foxes because I love to draw animals. Besides that, I wanted to work with bright red and orange colors.”

While we can admire the incredibly detailed nature to each of the three pieces, find out that they're made using just watercolors, liners and ink and now you can't help but fall in love with them. When asked how she created them, she stated, “At first, I created a sketch. Then, I covered the paper with watercolors, using an aerograph (or airbrush) to help me get that neat background. After that, I drew the characters by means of watercolors and permanent liners.”

To all the artists out there, more works using watercolors, please!
