I really like this :D Do you think you could make one as this but with ink instead? :) Not a request but just a question because I don't have the equipment for digital art and really would like to do something like this. I've seen this black&white before and it makes me interested... ^^

Are you familiar with the song The Fox Went Out On A Chilly Night? I'd love to see you illustrate that someday, your foxes are so inspired. :)

I love how this is a bit creepy and eerie. It's different from the stuff I've seen you post recently, so it caught my interest right away. It's really interesting how you made the change from the trees' leaves to the night sky, and very beautiful. Thanks for posting! <3

I love your black and white pieces. This has such a nice sense of depth, and the black placement is really nice. And if you hadn't said that this was a digital piece, I never would have seen it. =D

reminds me of this old story once... :
If you leave out things and forget their importance, the thieving foxes will come to steal them away into their world. Just a small knickknack or something of important value, forget and they will take it away. But the foxes claim they did no injustice, it was the humans that have done wrong! They have forgotten about their things, and the foxes were simply making those things useful to their full potential once more...
It was an old japanese story which they recently remade into an animated movie:D

love your work btw!!! XD

here's the trailer of the movie. Its in japanese, but it starts out with a girl and her mother who's reading the story to her. she has a little mirror from her mother, and then it changes to the girl as a teen. she wonders where the mirror has gone, and then there's the fox in the mask that takes it. She then goes on a journey to find out where the "hottarake" or forgotten thing go to!
here is the trailer ->[link]

Woah, it looks like ink!
I always say that traditional is better than digital, because I like the more natural look of strokes and colours, but you just proved me wrong.
I'd love to see this in colours. ;)

All those foxes makes my day a better one!

Very interesting to see the differences in a hand-drawn picture, and a computer drawn picture. It certainly sparks the imagination, and has many a wonderfully fey detail. I especially like the curiosity the foxes convey with their ears and stances.
