Just a few quick step-by-step photos of how I do fur with the fur tool I made. Hope someone finds it useful.

Keeping this comment short because the photos are fairly self-explanatory, I think. If anyone has questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

Better photo of the tool is here: [link]

I made this tool a few days ago and it's really awesome! Thanks so much for posting about it! It's just what I needed for the tiger im sculpting as a present. =)

So glad you found it to be helpful! You might also like my step-by step fur process (for future sculptures). It can be found in the "Sculpting Tools, WIPs and Techniques" folder in my gallery. You can also detail your fur further by just using a single straight pin or needle after using this tool. Anyway, happy sculpting, and kudos to you for being adventurous and making your own tool! :)

Thanks for posting this tutorial! I'll definitely have to make a detailer like that, my home-made tools just don't cut it. ;)

hey that's actually a great effect....
I don't sculpt fur too often, but I might have to give
this a try and make my own tool. The effect is very
clean and precise.
.....and I like how you can still see the three white
Pinheads popping out from behind the tool.
take care...drive safely
