Fur Tutorial (Digital Painting in PS)

By ThreshTheSky
•If you repost anywhere, please link back to me. There's no need to credit or link back to me if you only apply the instructions/tips of this tutorial to your own work (but adding this to your favorites would be much appreciated if you do so). A link to your work in the comments so I can see how you used it would be awesome.

•Some of the steps involve making changes that are so subtle that it's hard to tell the difference between them. I made a gif animation to accompany this tutorial so that it's easier to see the difference between the pictures in each step. It's posted here.

•I tried to be as clear as possible while still keeping things concise. I'm happy to answer questions about anything that's confusing or unclear.

AAA i followed your tutorial and this is what I ended up with! It looks so different because I'm using FireAlpaca and they don't have some Photoshop features:

I know, I’m on mobile, it’s still very small.

I haven't heard from anyone else who's had a problem with this but I'll keep it in mind if I ever make another tutorial. Thanks for the feedback.

When I create a layer below the sketch layer, the colors I use to paint the layer below the sketch does not appear. What do I do?
(Sorry bad english ;w;)

Hello! Sorry hear you're having trouble. I'm assuming you're using Photoshop. :)

When you draw on the new layer below the sketch layer and it doesn't appear, can you see it when you hide the sketch layer? Or is it that you're trying to draw but nothing is appearing at all, even when the only visible layer is the color layer below the sketch layer?

Hmm. In that case, I'm not sure what to tell you since I can't see what's going on. Are you using the paintbrush tool?
