Painting Creature Fur


EDIT: For a more extensive tutorials on how to paint different types of hair and fur check out these videos I made.…

EDIT: Thanks for the DD! :)

Here's a fur tutorial because I'm awesome like that. No, someone actually asked me kindly who's trying improve upon their technique. (And I had the spare time.) This is basically how I go about creating fur for creatures. It may seem like a lot of steps, but it goes very quick once you have it down.

Use the download button to get the brushes I used plus a few extra.

Make sure to check out my FB art page for more updates like this.
