How I did mah fur by Krissyfawx How I did mah fur by Krissyfawx
How I did the fur in [link]

Note: I'm working in SAI

1.) Base is a dark shade of the fur color that is used.

2.) Made fur-like brush strokes with a med-large sized brush with my fur color. The length of the brush strokes depends on where on the body you're at. Small, short strokes for shorter fur, and larger/longer stokes for longer fur. Study your animal's fur pattern to determine how it's layed out.

3.) With a smaller brush, I did wispy outlines on the ends of each of the larger brush strokes to make it look like actual fur.

4.) Added wispy highlights and shading wherever necessary, depending on where my light source is.

That's about it :B


I just realized it's a Tribble....

Nice, thanks for the show, personally though, looks more feathery then fur, which is fine too, looking into how to do feathers too.

Try using grey colors for the steps, then making an overlay layer. On the new layer, draw in the colors needed for the markings and colors.

Petalsaurus Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
I think what you want to do is start with a gray for the base, (like in #1) and start going lighter,or white gradually with the details and strokes. (:

I used this to make [link]
But i didnt understand step 4. Like what did you use to do your highlights? And how did you do the shading. I just made a new layer and used the airbrush and i used the pencil for the highlights. But it didnt turn out like urs xD
