I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY GRAMMATICAL AND SPELLING MISTAKES! I am quite notorious for typos >>'
A tutorial where I talk my way through a painting, going over some of the things to think about while your creating. This is in no way a complete "How To Digitally Paint" tutorial. That would be a several thousand page book. Also, I am not a professional in any way.
This was supposed to be a "Fur" tutorial. Ended up being more about process, color, and light.
Also, the image was painted in MyPaint and adjusted in Krita.
The tutorial itself was set up in Gimp, with text added in Inkscape.
So in theory, EVERYTHING YOU SEE can be done with Free/Open source software.
Special thanks to texturemate.com for the textures.
Also, I mention a few things in this tutorial, such as color adjusting, color theory, light and shadow, and detailed rendering. I highly suggest looking for other tutorials on the matter. This is more of a "big picture" tutorial.
