Fischer and his Fox 2.0 / by Matt Clysdale

I just revamped my portrait of Fischer and his red-fox by adding a background. The original version was a completely white background, and although it was snow from the original fox photo, it was feeling too sterile and unnatural.

Interestingly enough though, both versions look like studio portraiture. The difference being this new version has what looks like a classically textured backdrop. In actuality it's a blurred photo of the Kalamazoo River.
