Tutorial - Traditional Fur by Shadow-of-Destiny Tutorial - Traditional Fur by Shadow-of-Destiny
Yes my first tutorial ever.. xD
After I took so many photos of step by steps from this drawing I thought that I may also make a tutorial out of it... so it's a step by step, the way I draw fur!
I hope it helps and if there are questions, feel free to ask!

This is extremely helpful!! Thankyou! I hope this won't be the first and only tutorial! Is this the same method you use to do your hair?

hehe thank you <3 and I might do more xD I already have a photoset of how to color feathers but I didnt get to make a tutorial out of that yet
and in some aspects it is the same way how I color normal hair, the shadows and lighting is just set somewhere else sometimes, depens on the hairstyle of the character

Super helpful! :D Are there any off brands of Copic markers that arent as expensive? Or any type of marker that works the same but is cheaper? Thanks ^ w ^

I think there does exist a brand of markers that are kind of a copy of the copics and are cheaper.. I havent tested them though
here you can see a comparison between the two: hydestock.deviantart.com/art/P...

just a small question, which brand or type of marker you use? or at least so far as I appreciate it is a marker and also, the type of paper you use? ^^

haha good questions!
I am using Copic Ciaos on Laserprinter paper, usually in 120g/m² so it is alot thicker than usual paper which makes it easier to work with lots of different 'layers' of colors.

oh thank you very much, I hope that here in Mexico sell this type of paper and the mark because here we lack many items TTwTT

Can you get the same effect using colored pencils instead of copics?
Reply
:iconshadow-of-destiny:
Shadow-of-Destiny Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yes you can! :3
ever thought why there is a white pencil included in alot of boxes? it's there to blend the color and it works really good with black.. it will make is look smoother ^^ you should try it out!

Huh. I never would have picked that you use copics. I would have always guessed colored pencils.

you can use it the same way for colored pencils ^^
you just need different shapes of a color.. say you want to use red for the coloring of fur you use red for the darkest shading, orange for the next step and yellow for the last one. the strokes are the same as well as the procedure
