WIP: WoK Wolves Fur

Okay, above is the color palette for the male & female wolf's fur and below is the process...

I do a bit of under shading with the darkest colors and the pinks to deepen shadows and add tonal variation...

I'll start with the male wolf first. Start to mix and work up these colors and overlap your brush marks and let them show to suggest a fur like texture in places.
 Now we shade and glaze with these colors...

Same process fro the female wolf...

So that is the fur done. Pretty hard to do actually. I am okay with the results, but would have liked to have taken another stab at it. Still a good overall effect.

Next post: Bases.

Thanks for having a look, let me know what you think in the comments and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain :)


  1. Wow Zab, that last photo shows - even at this admittedly latter stage WIP - that the wolven looks simply incredible. At first I was going to recommend de-saturating the blue head-wear but you know what, it still looks incredibly good as is so I'm going to shutup and leave the genius art to you. :)

    1. Thanks! It's always a gamble with the neutral palette, but that splash of color ties it all together nicely :)


By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
