Painting and Stylizing Fur Tutorial by DragginCat Painting and Stylizing Fur Tutorial by DragginCat
Please Download for full view!

Alas, the long awaited fur tutorial is finished! It only took 5ever but I finally got it done. :faint: I don't really consider myself an expert on this subject but quite a few people have asked me to do this so I guess I must be doing something right! xD

I was originally going do a stylization tutorial next but I scrapped the idea cuz there's just waaay too much stuff I hafta go over for that one. ^^' So if I was to do a stylization tutorial I would probably break it off into different subjects haha

I decided to add a little twist to this and added how to stylize fur, cuz I wanna encourage people to find their own unique styles while understanding the basics of course. 8) I hope my poor writing skills make sense to you guys.

I'm not a really confident tutorial maker so if you see that I've said/did something wrong, something doesn't make sense to you, or if you have questions please let me know! C: I'm probably not going to make any more tutorials unless I get multiple requests on a specific subject people would like to see. ^^;

If you're interested in other tutorials by me, I also have another tutorial on shading fav.me/d4ot0sn but its kinda outdated since I've resorted to grayscale shading recently.

IN OTHER NEWS, I got a haircut today. :B

EDIT: sasfgdsh omg oh wow thanks for the DD guise!! ;w;

When you learned anatomy, for instance a dog's face, how did you go about doing so?  

BTW, I really respect the fact that you reply to like every comment.  It can be pretty time consuming!

just reference from photos! Once you get the hang of drawing a real dog's face, you can stylize it to your own liking

Ahah well its not too bad xD i like talking to ppl haha

This tutorial was super helpful! I will continue to refer back to this over time, thanks for making it! c:
Also, the last part you mentioned about mimicking the fur style while shading really made a difference in some of my recent drawings! Thanks again! :heart:
