 Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 24)

Here is the Ox from The Frog and the Ox!!!

There are different types of Oxen (that’s the plural of ox). I decided to represent a Musk Ox because the presence is more appropriate for the story which is about a BIG ox and a small frog. The frog sees the giant ox and wants to be as big as he is. Our frog starts swelling to look bigger and bigger and them BOOM! She explodes. The fable doesn’t specify what kind of ox I should represent so I was free to make my own choice. The regular ox looks more like a cow or bull. But the Musk Ox is in my opinion a lot more interesting for the fable, I like the way the horns are set. Anyway, the oxen, cows, bulls etc are all from the Bovinae family. After this lesson I’m ready to go to a farm and spend the rest of my life working with animals from the Bovinae family icon smile Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 24) I really like their personalities.

My Ox for the fable is looking down at the frog with that expression like: What? That frog is nuts! I thought that it was going to be very hard to make an animal like the musk ox look interesting but I really liked the way it turned out icon smile Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 24)

The frog should be jumping in here tomorrow!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. You did an outstanding job with your ox. Can hardly wait until your frog will jump up to meet all of us.
    Have a lovely day.

  2. I love his outfit. Quite a dapper ox!

  3. He is so oxlike! With his broad shoulders and his feeling of bulk, so much power he seems a little shy in showing off his wonderful waistcoat and jacket, and keep his top hat balanced on his head.
    I know what you mean about bovines. I got to milk a cow once and it was heavenly.

  4. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying these posts! They are so wonderful and magical! I absolutely love each one of them!

  5. LOVE the way you draw attention to the Ox being large by simply making his vest bursting against the sweet button! SO much of your visual choices are integral to your telling the story! Brava.

  6. oh wow mr ox is absolutely dashing in his dapper attire! love! and i look forward to seeing the frog x

  7. Mr Ox certainly portrays the large personality he has – almost bursting his button. He better not try to make himself larger. But I also see how he is quite the image the frog would want to turn himself into. Love the clothes. Waiting anxiously to meet the frog as he hops out to meet us tomorrow.

  9. A lot of things is not as easy as it seems, only can do is original himself.

  10. See how the sky was black during the day, see how long is the night, and at dawn.

  11. ¡¡¡¡ Me encanta!!!

  12. i really love the muskox. The color of their natural coats is really gorgeous and I think he looks fantastic in a fancy jacket too.
    fern was wondering if their would be any snails in this wonderful book?

  13. I love your interpretation of the ox; his flower pin and sweet expression remind me very much of Ferdinand the bull; have you read that children’s story? I think the title is simply, “Ferdinand,” and it is one of my favorites!

  14. You really captured the “what is that??” body language, that sense of surprise. Good choice on the musk ox.

  15. .Nice one, there is actually some good points on this blog some of my readers may find this useful, I must send a link, many thanks.

  16. I believe tears at a funeral are all those the one who died never got to cry while alive. We finish cleansing their soul when we cry.

  17. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
