The Fox and the Hound by FoxTaleStudio The Fox and the Hound by FoxTaleStudio
The story "The Fox and the Hound" and characters of the story are Daniel P. Mannix /Disney.

As the title says this is my rendition of the story of "The Fox and the Hound", one of my favorite childhood movies.

All comments and critiques are more that welcome.


Guess what?
With this piece there is a CONTEST:

Within this work I have hidden TEN characters from the story (excluding Todd (The Fox) and Copper (The Hound).

The characters are as follows;

1) Amos- the hunter
2) Chief- the old hunting dog
3) Big Mama- the owl
4) Boomer- the woodpecker
5) Binky (?)- the finch
6) The big bad bear
7) The fish that Todd could not catch
8) The friendly hedgehog
9) Todd's mom (Hint: she is deceased, therefor she is "watching from above")
10)The worm that Boomer and Binky could never catch

The first person to send me a note with the correct location of each character will receive a sketch done by me. The sketch will be of the winner's OC, their favorite pet, or their favorite animal.

Good Luck! :D

:winner: We have a winner! :winner:

:iconcatahoula278: sent the winning note!
(I will post a link to the prize after it has been delivered)

Honorable Mentions:
:iconangelwolf92: and :iconpallasathene04: were very close!

For me, it's not story or hiiden contest, i liked that pic.. it comes from the heart..go on^^

This is very true to the original Daniel P. Mannix book that Disney attempted to make child-safe. The lack of bright, saturated lighting in a scene so full of life conveys a subtle sense of melancholy. I would only brighten Todd's fur a little more or highlight it in a small way so he stands out as well as Copper does. Overall, a great illustration I would expect to see beside John Schoenherr's own, if not used to update the imagery altogether!

I love the Fox and the Hound :3 And I love how you hid other characters in the image, I had fun trying to find them all!
Zella1900 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
In the original. the master finds the fox's lair and gases the hell out of it leaving the kits, vixen and tod dead.
They go back home and party.
puky1199 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013

Thank you for the answer key! The only ones I couldn't find were Todd's mom and the worm XD

metalheadarmyguy Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
the finches name is Dinky x3
Drock625 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
I see Amos
along with Chief right next to the tree trunk
I see the big mama,
I also see boomer and binky,
and the Bear
the fish
the Hedgehog
I also see the mom's face on that tree trunk to the right of the owl. not the one on the right of the owl but on the one after that.
and the worm on that little piece of plant next to the water.

There I got it. And it only took me like 20 minutes.

Does this mean I win?

I love this. The colors are softly muted which makes me feel very nostalgic =). It makes me envious of what your hard work produces.

Nostalgic, it's wonderful that you mention that because that is how I felt when creating it! Cozy memories of childhood watching this movie at Grandma's. Also thank you for your kind comment :)
