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!

Nice job! Just a side note, the fox should be much smaller than the dog ;)

I love that movie. One of my childhood favorites.
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!
