Short Fur Tutorial


#1

Here is a tutorial showing the Photoshop technique that I use to create short fur for animal illustrations and 3d texture maps. I hope it is useful and any suggestions to make it better would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all, for the comments. I hope the technique is useful.

I recently created a set of 54 hair brushes for Photoshop. You can find them here:

What do you use to tint on step 6? I used a gradient layer set to color, but I don’t know if it looks as good as yours. And i can’t seem to get it to fade as well from the stripes to the background, do you just leave that layer on normal?
great tutorial though, i like it a lot.

I use the Selective Color adjustment layer a lot for tinting over neutral tones, adjusting mainly the white, neutral and black attributes. To fade the fur to white I just airbrushed in white on a layer set to Soft Light mode.
I hope that helps.
