Fur Tutorial by ballistic-kitten Fur Tutorial by ballistic-kitten
Note: I apologize in advance--if you full-view this, which I do highly recommend, you will find that it is a rather TREMENDOUSLY HUGE file. By huge I mean a resolution of about 1200x1200. So it might take a minute to load, and you'll probably have to scroll around to look at all the details.


Yes! The long-awaited fur tutorial is here. It's not very thorough, I think, was late when I created it and, sketchy though it may be, I think it gets the basic point across.

Keep in mind this is a tutorial based on Photoshop as the art program. I might try to make more later, for different programs.

Give it a try, and show me what you can make! And please do let me know if this tutorial helped you at all. ^_^

I tryed it, too, the result is not as good as your's, but better than before.^^ I haven't got the dodge and burn tools... I don't really know how to make the fur on the head, maybe you can give me some tips?

Thank you, I've been trying a technique similar to this without much success.  You've explained it very well, so I'm sure I'll get better results this time.  :)

What if you're doing a black wolf character? Brown?

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I used it to make my first wolf, though the fur isn't nearly as great as yours. Well, I am using a mouse, not a tablet...still, NO EXCUSE! XD I'll get better. Thanks again!
