It's not super fancy and that's because I'm lazy. Several people have asked me for a coloring tutorial of some kind, but I really don't want to make one. Mostly just because I just make stuff up all the time so I color almost every piece differently. So I took a bunch of screenshots while painting my most recently submitted portrait of Yoi and maybe this will still help some people grasp my thought process when I'm drawing. If not, it's okay because I don't either.

I've also created a tutorial on how to add color using gradient maps.

Enjoy!

Really just an explanation of what I did, not a tutorial. I'm not extremely good at explaining things haha

I never feel right making tutorials because, I don't consider myself a very advanced user of Photoshop. I never feel like I'm in the right place telling other people how to do it.

And I know this isn't an advanced tutorial, but many people don't know how to do this. I also know there are other tutorials out there explaining this exact same thing. . .

I was asked recently how to get the white off sketch images and it reminded me of how often I really am asked that. So have a tutorial for everyone in the future who needs to know.

Something else people ask me a lot. I understand that most people know how to do this but, still, here is how I do it for those who may need help.

I hope someone finds it useful!

Please read Part One first!




Anyway, hope this is useful :)
The main thing to watch out for when shading long fur is knowing the different fur lengths and knowing how fur flows!
To learn this, practice a lot by looking up photo references!
Notice where it's short, medium, and long. Where it bunches up, where it's smooth, where it's shiny, etc!

OUT OF DATE  u:



-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.

Finally, I uploaded this one here too, now you guys won't have to dig through my webpage for it anymore. Of course, ifyou find the layout irritating or difficult, then you can still use the one over there instead. It's basically the exact same thing , but without the fancy, dark framing device.

Even if I use PhotoshopCS4 myself,the tutorial is not program-specific (as my tutorials never are) and all you really need is a round paint brush with adjustable opacity-levels, a couple of layers and optionally some sort of smudge brush.
It is exected that you are at least somewhat familiar with whatever program you're using, as there's no "and this is how you make a new layer"-type of advice in the tutorial. That would kind of nullify the non-program-specific thing I've got going on here.

But hey, have fun!

Man, I've fallen in love with that font, Century Gothic. It's so...round and geometrical. Not the easiest to read, but sooo pretty.
