Sebastiansdrawings asked if I had any techniques or lessons to share from my tiger drawing. Firstly, there are people much more talented than me that could help you more. I’m leaving some fur links at the bottom.
Secondly, drawing fur is much the same as drawing hair. Use 3 or more color tones to create depth and texture. Mbbradbury made a great hair tutorial! Also, Mademistakes wrote an article about how to use Paper that is excellent!
Thirdly, I wasn’t that happy with my approach to the matted fur, so take that tip with a grain of salt. Use your own judgement and taste to see what works for you.
Last, but not least, thank you all for the comments and kind words! I really appreciate it!
Sylvia’s Hare, dog Rosie and dog Percy.
Zemyatin’s dog Rosa.
There’s probably loads more of good examples, but these are some of my favorites.
