Counsel of the Fox by FlightyFelon Counsel of the Fox by FlightyFelon
This is a piece for :iconfantasy-masters: 's Grimm Fairy Tale contest :)

It is based on the story of "The Golden Bird" which can be found here: [link] if you want to read it.

"So the fox said,
I will at any rate give you good counsel:
Beware of two things; ransom no one from the gallows,
and sit down by the side of no river.'" -- The Golden Bird

I originally came across the story while helping my boyfriend write a story about Grimm's fairy tales, when I saw the contest, I thought it must be serendipity since I'd been planning to make a piece on the story anyways! :O

I hope you guys like it!

I really like the crystals in the tail and the colors look great
I think the hands could use a little more detail though, they look a little funny
