Started off as a watercolour sketch for sketchtember, then took it a bit further ;) Tested watercolor and gold leaf here.
I liked how in animal symbolism the fox is often referred to as a guide, so I drew this one holding a magic key that can access other universes. I crushed goldleaf and made it blow off of the key to add a little magical element to the artwork. Goldleaf scans terribly, so here is an image of the piece in real life. ( sorry for the cellphone pic, didn't have access to the studio camera today)
