Realistic FUR: 28 brushes for Adobe Photoshop for painting realistic fur
Also works with Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Fresco
Realistic FUR is 28 excellent Photoshop brushes I use for creating a perfect fur when painting
animals, furries, original characters with fur and other wooly and fluffy creatures and objects.
The brushes depicting fur from the side view (brushes # 2, 3 and 8)
have two options for each one, for the left and right hair growth direction.
Therefore, there are actually three more brushes in the set — 31.
I've worked to learn how to draw realistic fur quite a lot of time. And I can be proud that I'm reached this goal (and keeping moving on).
To simplify the work process, I created a series of brushes for myself, and here I'd like to share it with you.
My brushes allow you to create high-quality realistic fur styles and countless combinations.
So I'm sure, you'll appreciate the assistance that they will give you during your work!

• Some useful tips and notes:
• How I'd advise painting furry volumes. As you know, there's a number of basic shading technics
in painting and drawing, and I like this one as the most appropriate for me — I find it one of the most
rational by painting the fur — to start coloring with a neutral, halftone local color, then shade it
according to the volume and lighting. Usually this underpainting should be darker than fur, as it would be
in the shadow. So then add layers above to add the fur. All the brushes have a minor color and lightness
jitter to make the fur more realistic.
• So, try at first to place basic shading with a simple brush you prefer to paint usually, hard or soft,
and then put the fur strands above, according to the form and lighting.
• After it's may be needed to make some areas deeper (darker) — for example, shaded areas deeply
among strands near their roots — or set some light and highlight accents in the lights.
• You can experiment also with layer' and brush blending modes, such as Soft Light, Screen, Multiply, etc.
• As in painting or drawing at all, I'd recommend proceeding from common, main shapes to partial ones
and details: firstly, specify the main big volume, lights and darks, then put non-detailed fur strands using
matching brushes, and then make the detailing with detailed fur brushes.
• In the end, I'd add some the sharpest strands or hairs, maybe blur or darken some of the underlying strands,
light up some of most visible, highlighted. Try to make some of them softer of sharper, darker or lighter
in the finish or work, kind of post-processing. Add some highlights, specular. The separated hair can be drawn
by regular textured thin brushes.
• The brushes # 2, 3 and 8 have two options for each one, for left and right hair growth direction.
Hi! Answering your question, yes — these brushes are compatible with Photoshop 2021. But sometimes there may be the issues with import.
Today I spent a long session with Adobe support, everything worked out, but there is such a moment if there's a problem with importing the brushes (abr and tpl files):
"if the user is installing the Photoshop 2021 (v.22.0.1) application for the first time then they may get the brushes imported. But if they have the application installed already then they may need to reset the preferences of the application and then import the brushes".
Here it's about reset all the settings and preferences in Photoshop. We did something like described here:
But it makes sense to do only if the ABR and TPL files you'd like to install suddenly aren't accepted by Photoshop. ;)
Hey, I just bought the pack. Can you tell me how you rotate the brush? Is that set up on your pen tool or? For me it is just going in one direction, also when trying to angle the pen like you do in the video. I have looked online and I can't find anything to help me do the same thing you did in the video. I appreciate your help and your brushes! :D
Thank you for the purchase!
Regarding your question, please check if the following Brush settings are still set (Shape Dynamics: Angle Jitter Control — Direction). May be by some reason they're inactive? I've just made this rotating strokes by using only a mouse, so it couldn't be up to the tablet...
Hi! Sorry for the late response! Do you still have any confirmation, email, or receipt from that purchase? Perhaps you remember which resource the purchase was made on, email address, and so on? Thank you!
Good Morning :-D

We have moved countries and changed email addresses in the mean time so this is all I can remember. I tried attaching a screen shot of the brushes in my photoshop directory on my pc but can not seem to do so. I hope this helps.
