Practicing my illustration skills, trying to get better. There's definitely room for improvement!
This little dude was made by bringing an image into Illustrator and trying to use only basic shapes to form the silhouette. I then "divided" all of the shapes with the pathfinder, then began to "unite" various shapes back together in order to make the various body parts. I then textured it with some photos of foxes found around the internet. A fun little creative exercise to round out the week.

Cute! i love foxes
A little CC:
-the spot in between the font legs is a little weird- try getting rid of the negative space, and just make it a line
-the front foremost elbow is weird, try raising up the outside point of the elbow a little bit
-the stomach could be a little curvy instead of a straight line
-make the tail poofier!! :D
- and lastly, the green tinge to the white fur on this images is weird to me
@Caitlin McCormick Thanks for the feedback.
This was originally to be a one-color illustration (http://i.imgur.com/1wrPFEh.png), so negative space was used to "color" some of the sections. I should have removed that once I got into coloring/texturing. You're also right about the front elbow... could definitely use some tweaking.
As for the stomach's curve, poofy tail and green tinge; I think it really just comes down to preference and personal style. Fox's stomachs are nearly flat (http://i.imgur.com/mbJvRR6.jpg), so I decided to go a bit further for aesthetic reasons. I appreciate your opinion, though. Thanks!
If you keep the negative space, i would stylize it a bit more, add more of those fur lines and accentuate them- i didnt notice them in this version but in the two color one you linked to i did
