My good friend ~Axolotl-mafia wanted to know how I made the fur on my Darc picture, so I thought a tutorial would be a great idea.

I have used this technique for these other pieces and they turned out really nicely. I made clothes, hair, furniture... all sorts of stuff. If you have any questions, note me!

This is a great launch point. By far my favorite thing I have seen anyone do with it is :[link] by ~tatsuya-shiro

:heart::heart: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE DD, COMMENTS AND :+fav:S!! :heart::heart:

I now have a great appreciation for people who make tutorials. It's very time consuming and long. I'm really happy I made it though. I hope it makes sense and I hope there are no typos since my expert copy editor ~mechanicalman is sleeping. I'll have him fix it for me tomorrow.

Furry, Fuzzy Tutorial by ~hartandhunter -- Suggester's words: I completely found this tutorial by accident, but it's one of the greatest tutorials I've ever found in my life. This may be an older tutorial, but I just about fainted when I tried it for myself. There are so many fur tutorials out there, and until now I had never heard of this method! Not only that, it works for Photoshop Elements, making it a versatile method (since not all methods that work for Photoshop work for PE). This is something I would definitely recommend to other artists who have problems making realistic fur. It's an excellent step in the right direction!

I played around with this method and find that it's also a great method to establish base shades, and shade hand paint in the detailed strands. :) Thank you!

I found this tutorial soo long ago and I hadn't really had to do fur until now but I just wanted to say that this is a wonderful and easy way to do fur. I just love the way it turns out. Alot of times when I try anything with tutorials it never turns out right but I got this one right away, Thank you.

I did these two this way...[link] [link] That second one was my first attempt.

Mahvelous! I'm glad it was easy to follow. I frequently find that a lot is taken for granted as just "known" in a tutorial and I tried really hard not to do that. :star:

This is a great tutorial for those who are just starting out and want to draw fur, however if you want to really advance as an artist, you would eventually have to move on from it to a method that's more... complex. Personally, I wouldn't suggest this method for hair, because it just doesn't look like, well... hair. Also, the semi-realistic qualities of the "fur" would clash with anime-like styles, as seen in the examples. It looks out of place.

I agree, the clash it totally there. Unfortunately I don't have anything more recent than the bottom image of the badger fur. This is definitely a starting point tutorial. I wanted everyone to have the chance to get started on these techniques. And more advanced artist have adapted it and improved it. Thanks for the comment!
