Fur Tutorial by Tatchit Fur Tutorial by Tatchit

-Ignore typos- .-.

This is a basic overview of how I work with fur. I've had a lot of questions and hopefully this answers them.

I use about three layers for fur, and constantly combine them so I can use a clipping mask on the whole subject.

There is no secret fur brush-just a regular hard brush with a few setting changes.

After all this, I cannot stress enough about the importance of practice. I didn't learn this overnight, and this tutorial is not to be taken religiously. You may learn a different way, use a different program, different brushes and settings.

Done in PS CS5.

If by chance you use this, don't worry about linking back. No need to, use it and have fun.

I'm having trouble trying to make it look fluffy and "cub-like" Sweat Drop revamp

I will look back at this when I get this program and start drawing my OCs in something besides Muro...

I've always had problems drawing just the lineart of fur, but I think I learned how to pretty well by looking at your tutorial for reference. I just had to think of it like a detailed flower XD

unfortunately I don't have the original file anymore so I'm not sure how'd you do it, but yes, you may translate and re-upload this were you want.  The only thing I ask is a link back to my page so people can find the original source. :)
