Anxious Cub

1 Mar

1393710234929Carrying on with some digital practice from photographs of foxes, I found an image of a rather anxious cub. Like all young animals, the eyes are much larger than adults while the faces are smaller and the distance between the nose and eyes is more compact. To find the source photos, I’ve just been googling British – fox – images and I’ve been shocked that there are a few horrible ones. Very upsetting. I can’t understand why people want to show off their cruelty. Barbaric.

This is drawn on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 using a free Markers app. I’ve laid down a mottled background before drawing and made several saves to produce a slideshow.

    I know what you mean about the horrid images – I get the same problem googling for images of rats, and I once found a very disturbing image where someone had written a poem to accompany a dead cat, but not in a nice way. There are some unpleasant people out there.
    By the way, I read your title first as ‘Anxious Club’ and was imagining drawings of people sitting drinking tea and looking worried! Lovely fox portrait. 🙂

      Anxious Club – now there’s an idea lol. Yes, there are some vile people around. It’s put me off googling animal images, but I have to do it so I’m going to have to suck it up. I wonder if there’s anything that can be done about it?

        probably not – it’s much harder to screen out that, say, pornographic images – people who run porn sites want to be found by people who like their content, so are likely to admit what their content is first, people who put up nasty images probably want to be seen by everyone… It’s a difficult one, but at lease we are grown-ups, goodness knows what children see that we didn’t when we were little!
