Fur Tutorial V.1 by DavesPineapple Fur Tutorial V.1 by DavesPineapple
Many people have asked me to make this, so there we go, I finally did it! :dummy:
This is a step by step tutorial showing how I usually paint fur, starting from a messy black and white blob to a finished picture (:

Also, here's a couple extra infos which you might find useful:

First of all, yes, I draw every single hair by hand, so its a pretty time consuming method and it also requires quite a bit of patience. There isnt really a time limit for it because of that, but the general rule is, the longer you work on it, the better it'll look (:

Regarding brushes, I use moderately big variety of them, so thats why I didnt list any in particular here.
For fur tho I mainly use a brush with a sharp angled shape and pressure-dependent opacity. A triangular or diamond-shaped brush should do the trick!

If you have trouble reading or just want a bigger version of this, it can be found in my stash here: [Link]

If you have questions feel free to ask below, Im SURE I forgot like a bajillion things, so go ahead and ask me directly here XD




So yeah, Rabbit still loves you

Any brush with sharp edges will do, just keep the size fairly small and a pressure setting you feel comfortable with and you should be fine c:

It looks great! I'd like to paint fur a little similar to this style but..
How much time would it take to paint like this with a mouse?  :S

uuuh probably a long time...this method works pretty well with a pen because you can paint a bunch of hair with fast pen strokes...not sure if that'd even work with a mouse :L

Oh.. well I think it's better to keep it simple until I have a tablet, by the way, your paintings are amazing! ^^

I'd very much recommend a tablet since it's much better for painting (:
Wacom Bamboos are excellent and not even that expensive! The one I use is a old Bamboo Pen & Touch, I don't think they produce the same model I have anymore but I've heard a lot of good things about the newest one.
And thank you very much, I really appreciate the compliment (:

You're welcome! I'd love to have a bamboo but even if they aren't supposed to be that expensive here where I live all tablets are, and very much :s, but I'm not losing hope, someday I'll have one :)
