The main thing I want to focus on is the shape of the fox, as right now, I can't tell if it is a fox or wolf, and your last tryout had that "general k9" look to it as well. I haven't really drawn foxes that much, but I see some key things that could help you with this.

Bodies of foxes when they lay down, are not as long, they like to curl up, and wrap their tail around them.

The tail is very soft and smooth, and the texture you have going on looks like it's angry (sticking up). Also it is way too long, and wouldn't curl out in such an ark like that. (I'd see a big cat doing that more then a fox)

Also, look at the structure of a fox face

You have the wedged look, but this is also surrounded by fur to soften the whole features. The eyes aren't themselves pointy, it's the fur coloring that gives that look. Make sure to line up everything correctly, you have the ears on a different angle and the eyes are also not level.

Finally, baby animals aren't "miniatures" of their parents. They have different features.

See how round and soft the face and paws are? Babies don't get their adult looks until they are much bigger. That's why we go "aww" when we see a baby, and "eww" when we see adult crocs. Foxes don't get that predator streamline look until they are older.

Overall, I think a few more months focusing on specific anatomy of animals would do great for you. Don't worry about working out full blown images, do quick sketches, and get those flowing shapes out. The spiky fur I think is holding you back, draw in long flowing lines. Look up shapes, compare to other animals, and see what is and isn't found in particular species. I wish you the best of luck!

P.S. Foxes tend to be used for taxidermy a lot, so when looking up pictures of them, make sure it isn't stuffed as the anatomy might be very off.

Come to think of it, I made the back way too square looking, would be more rounded (green).

And holy cow, wall of text. ;_;

wall of text is good, it shows you care. I'm always amazed how much love people put into critiquing here. You never see the same thing on dA which is a mighty shame.

Aw thanks guys! ^//^ So sweet <3

@afalcone, they are flock creatures, so I'd have at least 3-5 minimum. We had ten, and about an acre of land for them to run around on. Just depends on your size restriction and how many you want running around. :P

It looks like something I'd hang on my wall where I could see it and be calmed on a stressful day. :) Very pretty, exciting color choices yet peaceful composition. Love the contrast of the dark and dulled blues and bright yellows.

I love this. The colors are magical and it looks so edible. Kind of fruit roll-uppy. If a fruit roll-up were then made into a starry northern light bayou, like Ailaik said.
