:rolleyes: hmm, pratice piece. Ok, that's what I am trying to do and try out the fur brushes but not successfully. I am not sure how to control the fur along with my brush strokes. I may be missing something to understand the setting. Can someone help to give me some advices.

An interesting practice, Pai. A bit unnerving in some way. Hard to put my finger on it. :)

Hi Pai, I had a bit of a play with the fur brush, which I haven't really before. I think you should start with a darker background to give depth, then choose your fur type and practice to see which way the brush's hair direction runs. Then run the brush so it follows the desired direction. Animals have very specific hair lines, and also length of hair in different places. Your wolf's snout hair would be short and runs from the tip of the nose backwards to between the eyes. As the angle changes down the side of the face you will need to practice to find the way your brush will travel. If you don't get those directions right, your painting will not look real. Rotate your canvas to get those directions right.

Also I would get your runs so they overlap correctly and give a richness of coat. Don't go back in and lay more down, get it right the first time. :D :D

Thanks Katie, Jibes, Bryon and Betsy for looking in and leave such nice words for me. :):)

@Copespeak, thanks for showing me how it should be gone to different direction of the fur. I did try to rotate the canvas, I think there should be some setting should be changed in the spray viriation sheet. I will try again. Thanks so much again for teaching me :)
