Forest Sentry WIP 11 by jocarra Forest Sentry WIP 11 by jocarra
An update for [link] - still have both ears, the right side of the head and face, and the neck to paint. That being said, a few people have pointed out it's less detailed in some areas - it's because it's still not done!

Around 8-10 hours in Adobe Photoshop CS3

How can you even do that?
So realistic
I wish my realism was this good!
I'm still kinda new with drawing fur its hard but I can make it but not as good as you yet.
Got any tips on how i can improve?
Here are few example of my realism

My newest one - fav.me/d7dxlys

Second one I ever did - fav.me/d59j42m

My very first one - fav.me/d4nog7u

Am I doing something wrong or is it my style that makes my art not that exactly realistic?
I found out about drawing fur myself. I never bothered to look at tutorials. I have a bit too much ego to look at them I like to find things out myself but with this agh... I must ask for a tip....... DX 
So what do I do wrong?

I don't know, I think it's coming along nicely!  The most important thing isn't the tiny fur details, though, it's the underpainting/stuff you do BEFORE adding the fur detail, I think - if it doesn't look realistic before you start adding fur detail, adding fur detail won't really help.  Try checking out the walkthrough for this image! jocarra.deviantart.com/art/Rea…

However, some people paint fur detail right from the start, in which you must really layer your colours in order to achieve that realistic look - eg www.furaffinity.net/view/13592… .  Instead, I do that with underpainting, then do detailing on top.

Woah, amazing. But I would like to ask...you used any brush for fur?

No, I typically don't use any special fur brushes. If you're interested, I have a number of fur tutorials in my gallery: [link]
