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.

This file is for learning purposes only! Please do not use this file, or any part of this file in your own work. Feel free to share with other artists and link back to my gallery.

    I've always been a little jealous of your fur detailing. Thank you!

    Thanks for sharing this! I'll be certain to learn a few things from this. :)

    This is an absolutely insanely brilliant idea. I am just struggling with a drawing as it is right now and it seems I always get stuck at the coloring process. Thank you for providing this!!! :D

    Wow this is a real privilege! I'm curious about the 'red' layer- is it something you do regularly to unify the base colors or to have the character pop out from the blue background more?

    • Link

      Yes, it is! It's does unify things a bit more, but the reddish color also deepens the shadows and gives an overall sense of warmth to the character. That's the main reason I go for something like it every time. =) It sometimes is more towards an ochre color, if the overall color scheme of the piece doesn't look good with that reddish sienna look.

        Ahhh k, and it really helps get that natural white fur color too I just noticed. Thanks!
