We love you son by BlackBy We love you son by BlackBy
Well... it's not a finished work and I think it never will, I haven't time for that. Sorry for the bad quality, I hope you like it anyway.

It's the first time I draw Vixy Reinard and James McCloud , Fox McCloud's parents.
Hard to draw Vixy... We have few informations about her and just one pic in a comic (I don't really like it by the way). I made a lot of research and sketches to decide what she looks like... the mother of the hero's appearance and character are inevitably influenced Fox.

Vixy must looks like a mother (kind, strong) but sufficiently attractive to be a charismatic wife for James.
I also try to respect the comic and give her the famous similarity with Fara . Tell me if you like her like this or not.
This photography appears in another drawing of mine:

As a fan of the Star Fox games, and a little of the comics, needless to say I'm pretty impressed with this. It speaks so much about the characters from the series, and how much has happened in Fox's life in the games. It shows a side of the characters often unspoken of too much or spoken so little about for a game like StarFox, and seeing a picture that one wouldn't normally probably see in the games themselves considering it's direction makes it unique and memorable, sentimental in a beautiful way, about it.

Baby McCloud looks so adorable there, and Vixy looks like a caring mother, someone we'd all know from experience as the kind of mother who'd want Fox to have a good fate. James, too.

My only complaint would probably be that James's body position looks a little awkward, with stiff shoulders and a head larger than the bod itself-- unless he's meant to be leaning back. Vixy seems okay fo the most part as far as body postioning goes. James might need a little refinement, but other than that, I like it. :)
What do you think?

Schade um die Eltern von Fox. Andross war sonst noch ein böser Affe, sowie sein Enkel, Andrew Oikonny.

Cool pic, and I didn't know that Vixy Reinard was his mother, I knew about his dad just not his mom

Hmm, imagine a mass effect-style Star Fox, and this is in Fox's quarters on the great fox.
Just an idea.

I know this comment is really really really late, but seeing this picture kind of tugs at the heart a little because it really drives home the fact that both of his parents are dead. Good job on this picture.

Oh my God this is perfect! Awesome! Your art is great inspiration for my screenplay.
MarcusMcCloud100 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Student General Artist
This is cute.
But when you know how Fox's mom was killed in a car bomb that Wolf made in attempt to kill James.
Also how the story how James got trapped in the black hole.
It does make one feel bad for Fox.
I still like it regardless
Ask-Tricky Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012   General Artist
((Twas Andross, not Wolf. Wolf was about the same age as Fox, but older. Andross put the bomb under James's car, and Vixy's car had issues, so he let her borrow his.))
MarcusMcCloud100 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah that's what I was trying to get at.
Then Vixy borrows James's car when hers broke down.
The car turns over and explodes.
It was Andross not wolf my bad lolz

Being a fan of the Star Fox series in general, but especially all that came until Star Fox 64 (and a fan to the point of fanaticism when Fara Phoenix is in focus, by the way), I can't help but love this.

From me you shall get: One psychologically blocked-up throat and one slam on the desk.
Nice work, though I doubt these words will do justice.

amazing!! i think you criticize yourself a little too harshly. it looks really good. and to draw that based on one comic and what you think she looks like and to top it off make it look that good is quite amazing in itself. 10/10 for you madam!

You're sweet ^^. Maybe it's because I made it too quickly so I think it's not finished. Thanks you so much for your support *w* !

This is so great... yet I can't help but feeling a little sadness upon seeing it.
BlackBy Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2012   Digital Artist
It was the purpose, with the grey ambiance and the texture of the photography. It is a sad story indeed.
Beau-Skunk Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
Very sweet, and also kinda sad. (If you consider both of Fox McCloud's parents are dead... Though James' fate is still debatable if you've played SF64 & SFCommand.)

Very nicely done piece. :) I also like how you added some scratches on the picture.
