Hope its explained okay, I'm not good at explaining things ;-;

A couple of people have asked this now, and the explanation is always a metre long, and not very clear, so yes. :'D

Rainbow outline is pretty much the same thing, just putting different colours on top with the water tool btw. c:>

Note that after every step you need to make a new layer underneath the lineart layer/layer with the dark outline. On the last step, merge the entire eye before putting the white overlay on. Forgot to mention that :U

So I finally got around to making a new shading tutorial like I said I would. Instead of in PS, though, it's in SAI, and it's really not that difficult and I find it to be a great fast way to shade fur, so that's why I said it was mostly a fur shading tutorial in the title. idk lol w/e
I think I pretty much covered everything on the image... sorry for the amount of text lol. It's a little more than I anticipated.
If anything is unclear then I'm open for questions ouo b

art and character are mine!

Warning, huge file, you may need too download it to see better.

There are tons of ways to shade, this is just how I, personally, do it. 

My shading technique changes constantly (because I hate how long it takes and how messy it is with characters that have tons of different colours and markings) but yeah, a walkthrough on how I shade, as requested by a friend //v

Sorry if there are any typos, I type fast so I often don't notice. ;v;

This is a step by step tutorial on how i draw eyes.

(this was done in paint tool SAI but it will work in other programs that support layers, such as Photoshop)

1. Draw the eye shape.
2. Add a dark version of the eye color
3. create a little highlight at the bottom, with a lighter version of the color in no 2
4. - 7. Start adding the details! start making the lines and keep layering a lighter color on the top.
8. Add some black to the center and around the top, for extra contrast.
9. Create a new layer and draw a rough filled in circle on the bottom part . Then hit the overlay button for layer options.
10. Do the same as 9 but this time with a smaller circle. (this is optional)
11. Add reflections!
12. And finally, refine the details if you like. And then you are done!!!!

Im not the best at explaining, so please, feel free to ask if you dont understand.

Also, try experimenting with this tutorial, rather then trying to copy it exactly. Discover your own style :D

If you guys found this tutorial helpful, tell me, and i might make some others in the future.

So….this has been sitting in my sta.sh since January! I’ve been meaning to write explanations for everything but still have yet to do so. But either way, I feel this is of more use posted rather than just hidden away in the abyss of my sta.sh gallery. So here it is: my not so recent fur tutorial without any actual guidance on how the heck I do things. Hehe, helpful right? ^^;


To sum everything up in a really vague/quick way: I do all my shading with the brush tool. The only things I adjust are the min size and brush size. Density is always set to 100% and I don’t touch blending, dilution, persistence, or anything else. So just the very basic function of the brush.

After setting the flat colors, I completely refill with a darker tone and then roughly block in with another darker tone. With the same settings I’ll then roughly go in with an even darker tone for the darkest shadows. After I’ve blocked the shadows in I’ll go back shade by shade and refine the fur. The lighter the tone the smaller the min size percentage. This is to help with refining the fur. On average I’ll have at least 5 or more different tones.

And that’s basically it. Sorry it’s so brief! I still hope to properly explain each step but for now I hope this is of some use…and not too confusing, hehe...
