    Looking for a graphic artist to draw me a nice looking fox head, looking right at me, here's an idea, but it's not right.

    Shamus, could you describe in a little more detail what you're looking for - how many colours etc. The image below looks good to me, what in your mind is not right about it?

    cheers
    :D Val

    I like that one Val, I think it would work up nice for a decal. But Shamus would be the pro on that. :eek: :p :eek:

    When I'm trying to find a picture or a graohic on the Internet, I always use Google Images.

    http://images.google.com

    You may have to look at 100's of images, but the tumbnails makes it sooooo easy :eek:)

    Thanks my friends, Val, thats about the kind of fox I am looking for, got to be artwork as it is needed for my new decals. Need a larger version if possible to get the text around it, then it can all be reduced.

    Cheers

    Shamus, I whipped this up rather quickly and since you like the style there are a few "tweaks" I would like to make to the artwork. I can post it here or if you'd also like the original Adobe Illustrator file (which can be used as is if you have Illustrator or opened in Photoshop at any resolution you desire) email me and I will send it to you.

    cheers
    :D Val

    You might consider all white eyes or white with black dots if you are going to shrink it as far as the little badger was...

    Whistling mouth optional :D :D :D

    Always liking an opportunity...

    Always liking an opportunity I just typed "red fox" right into the browser and let the search engines do the work. So many "red fox" returns came I up that you could spend a few hours just browsing thru the seemingly obvious choices. The websites more than likely to have a good graphic for this application are going to be the ones who are bars, taverns, bed and breakfasts, sports teams (high school/college). Sites that require line art for logos (t-shirts-stickers-etc). I found quiet a few, too many to pull out and post here when you (Shamus) are going to be the judge of the final image. I steered clear of the "nature" sites. Most had photos of red foxes but they didn't really translate to line art well. I did get a fair education on Vulpes Vulpes however.

    Bummer- on the way to work yesterday morning an 18 wheeler just ahead had what I thought was a perfect full front red fox head on the side of the cab. I suspect it was a private rig and the owners "handle" and not a truck line logo. Naturally I didn't have a camera when I needed one :(

    Good luck in that search for the right one.
