Fox in the Woods - Allie Poynter

Fox in the Woods
Allie Poynter


Using Microsoft Paint, I created this picture called Fox in the Woods.  I started with the background.  I used a light blue to create the sky and a lighter shade of green to make the ground and grass.  I added darker streaks on the grass to show that it had shadows.  Next, I made the fox.  I started by drawing the fox using a Bamboo Pad rather than using a computer mouse.  Once the fox was drawn, I used the bucket tool to fill the shapes and then added darker colors to make the fox look realistic.  To make the eyes, I used my teacher's touch screen active board in the classroom.  It was easier to shade, zoom in, and add the smamller details to the fox's eyes.  I think adding the white to the eyes makes them look like they are sparkling.  I made the trees next and added darker colors so that it would look like the tree had shadows.  I did the same thing to the fox since the sun is in the background, behind the trees and fox.  To make the trees look more realistic, I added details using two different darker greens.  To create the bird and bird nest in the tree, I zoomed in so that it would just show that part of the image.  I used the Bamboo Pad again and the paint brush tool to draw and shade the bird, eggs, and nest.
