Strike by KatieHofgard Strike by KatieHofgard
By-the-hour painting commission for ~xXblackwolfXx, done in Photoshop with an Intuos 3! Originally commissioned for 6 hours, but she has been kind to me over the years and a repeat customer, so it's more like 8.5 hours I think.

Epic . I'd love to do an edit of something like this, it would make for an awesome background/avatar/forum sig combo. Not a lot of stuff around with this kind of motion

I'm curious to know;
How much time do you spend on making the fur? Do you have a special brush? Or are there some special effect you use for it?

I really want to be able to draw fur that looks just as soft and gorgeous as here, but I don't know how to approach.
You think you could help me out there? :)


This picture inspires a lot, I'm in love with the movement of the pose (;

It's no special brush or trick or anything, painting fur is the same techqnieu as painting anything. Paint dark to light, get your lighting right, paint your big shapes first and work down to your little shapes. So I paint the shape of the figure first, ignoring the texture. Then go in and define large chunks of fur and how it flows, then the details! *Sullivan has some great fur tutorials in her gallery, and if you feel you need it, some brushes that are fur specific. Hope that helps!

Due to the hidden blade just BARELY visible protruding from one paw I would assume this guy is some sort of assassin?
