3D model description

A little while ago during a Twitter conversation, somebody posted a photograph of a beautiful melanistic fox and suggested it might be a good subject for a model. I spent some time working out how to do the basic sculpt (quite easy) and then a multi material version (eek!)

Melanistic is basically the opposite of albinism, so the a dark coloured pigment in the fox's skin dominates and the red fox ends up black, sometimes with a shimmery grey effect hence being called silver foxes.

The little fox in the picture I used for reference had an interesting red patch thing going on. The photographs (and I am sure you will find them) were taken by the very talented Sam Gaby:

Models provided are single and multi material. You can of course mix the colours up as much as you like. Why not have a blue or a purple fox?

Single extrusion foxes by me. Lilac fox unpainted printed in lilac silk filament. The painted fox was printed in resin on a People Phenom

Awesome multi material Foxy printed by the very talented Mr Filament Frenzy
