I thought I would make one of my Photoshop files available for download so that fellow Photoshop users could learn how I do things! This file is 1/2 working size, and includes all the working layers. This will give you a clear picture of how I layer things, which layer settings I use, and how I block in my fur texture. While lately I've been playing with matte painting for fur textures, this is a good example of how most of my other work is done.
