A random small gift art for my dear friend, :iconhyenavitani: . This is his OC , Plate, a Hyena with earth powers/abilities. She was fun to draw. :V I hope her hair looks plausible.

Oh uhm, the whole thing took about 5 hours, so maybe the fur took 3 hours. But also in between I did other things like surf the net and stuff.

Very nice, it has good texture. Would you show me how you do your fur so I don't go insane?

Haha, alright. One of the keys is the eyedrop tool. (always has her finger on that) Well first I did a base with all the hues and shadows I want, just using a big brush, but it has to be soft shaded. Then I set my brush to the default hard brush at a small size and pick a colour in an area of the base coat I did. Then from there, i go to the pallete and select a colour that is either brighter or darker, and maybe a slight change in hue. Usually it works better if you make the base dark and the hair strokes light, but sometimes having dark hair strokes is necessary. Then also consider the light source, if its a bright yellow, stroke some bright yellow in some of the edges of the fur, depending on where the light is coming from. A final touch up with dodge and burn usually does the trick. Also remember to continuously do the pick colour thing at different parts of the body since they may have different hues and shades.

Its sort of like this tutorial up to step 3

but from there i use short, stiff strokes and I did not blur/smudge it here.
Also check this artist, see how they have a base, and then use light, stiff strokes for the fur effect.

Need any more info don't hesitate to ask.
