Anyway, hope this is useful The main thing to watch out for when shading long fur is knowing the different fur lengths and knowing how fur flows! To learn this, practice a lot by looking up photo references! Notice where it's short, medium, and long. Where it bunches up, where it's smooth, where it's shiny, etc!
Hello! I got a question! which brush do you use for "simple painted"? Because I also want to use photoshop cs3, but the pen pressure isn't really working :/ the brush' edge is not really sharp, and the opacity doesn't change with the pressure :/ I would be very gladful for any tips!!!!

Thanks for your tutorial! I'll link you when the piece this technique is used in is finished ~ I love your way of shading in all the different styles. You can make any way of shading/lightning look awesome!! <3
Awesome tutorial! Thank you very much for sharing it I want to try the realistic one You said it's simply adding a ton texture to the one above...I know it can sound silly as a question, but I'm new of those things, so...what's a texture? You mean a picture that go in another layer with a low opacity? :')
The problem I find with alot of reference of wild animals such as wolves is that there is very rarely a one directional light source, so lighting ref is usually really hard to find It's usually very ambient lighting, bouncing around all over the place. The closest thing I could find to a decent ref is finding a studio photo of a dog where the lights have been artificially set up, so there is very often a certain degree of guess work. Kinda sucks xD This will be helpful though, cheers
