Fur Painting Tutorial by Novawuff Fur Painting Tutorial by Novawuff
my lame attempt at explaining how i do fur...
i'm assuming everyone has a pretty good knowledge of PS, cause i didn't include the little screen grabs that show what tools and brushes i'm talking about..
but they're all quite standard, so hopefully everyone can figure it out :P

EDIT:
here's a little screen grab showing which brushes i was talking about... and yeah, the tool that in reality is called "smudge" I called "smear". same thing :}
