Focus your attention on mouths and whiskers. Follow along as Gemma shares a dark-to-light approach that will help you depict the space in an open mouth. And, see how to subtly layer colors for realistic-looking teeth, before drawing whiskers on a variety of different surfaces.
It’s time to tackle fur. From short and long to spotted and white, discover the key layering techniques to successfully depict the shape, texture and fur direction of the various types.
In this lesson you’ll work on drawing skin. Learn how to use solvent as an underpainting to speed up the process. After that, find out how to blur and blend your layers, and build a variety of textures within one subject.
Finish class by learning to draw ears. Gemma shows you how to create clumps of fur and added depth for a hyper-realistic finish.
