Well, um, first of all, I'm new here, so I don't know if this the right place for this...
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows a good tutorial for drawing a realistic coat of fur. In case I'm being too vague, I'm thinking in the view of drawing a portrait of a dog and getting the hues right and all, yet make it look as if individual hairs exist... >.< I hope you guys know what I mean... Um, I'd post the picture I was working on, but I'm using my Wii to write this. I'll have it up tomorrow though.
Um, it's kind of my first time trying to draw an animal (specifically a weasel) in a realistic manner. The most I've gotten on the fur was making the outlines look kinda furry. I'm worried I'm doing it wrong though lol. Again- I'll edit this post with the pic tomorrow, to show what I mean. What I'm looking for is a tutorial of how to make realistic fur, preferably with only graphite pencils. (That's all I have 'til I save up)
I hope no one gets confused with my question. I tend to describe things terribly >.<
EDIT: Here's my pictures!
The first was the original that I got stuck on and discontinued, but I decided to use him as practice. I'll practice doing fur on it. The second is the beginning of another drawing I did, and I don't want to mess this one up yet, not until I practice. I'm sure there's anatomy issues here and there, so that's another reason I'm posting it.
This is actually my first time attempting a realistic weasel, so it's probably got a lot of errors. Also, my scanner's kinda dirty. I need to clean it...
