.:Fur Tutorial:. by WolfGurll .:Fur Tutorial:. by WolfGurll
My tutorial for a realistic fur brush using photoshop ^_^

This did take me some time, although I am afraid I may not be clear enough in some steps. I apologise for that. Like I said, if any further help is needed note me about it…I am happy to answer any questions (:

For this tutorial I used Adobe Photoshop CS. It is very basic and will most likely be valid to any version of photoshop. I do use a mac and therefore some aspects may differ a little, though this shouldn’t make a difference overall.

(also if there is a better category for this plz state which lol)

Just a note-- this is a basic tutorial...Im sure there are far better fur brushes out there which may require more work. So just bare with me...this is what i use anyway lol

when you nake the brush on step 4, I can never get it thin and gets fatter then thin again (If that makes sense?) It always stays the same thickness..

I'm using CS3 btw...

Very good tutorial, I'm sure it could be adapted for the GIMP or another arts program, but well done! :D

very nice, wish you could have shown some of them in practial use as examples aswell tho.

Just a handy tip. On the Shape Dynamics page. If you change the Angle Jitter control to Direction. The fur will follow the direction you drag the brush so no need to rotate the picture :)

Can you pleeeease make a werewolf tutorial????
I can't find any that teaches how to do the mouth.
WolfGurll Featured By Owner May 21, 2007
I could.. but the way I make them is fairly simple.. you basically just use the 'liquify' tool and stretch the mouth out to how you desire. Play around with it first so you get the hang of it.

You'd be better off asking someone who actually makes good manips lol
magikwolf Featured By Owner May 21, 2007  Professional Artist
do you choose a brush size as big as the mouth.

other people who makes good manips usually don't like to give their steps away.
WolfGurll Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
yes. I make that tool to aroudn the size of the mouth, but make a copy of the original layer to do this on so you can erase the stretched background

aw you'd be surprised, more people are willing to help that you'd think, you just gotta ask ^_^
