How To Draw Fur. Like human hair, fur is a thick growth covering various animals’ skin. It is also the main distinguishing characteristic of mammals. Learning to draw fur is important, especially if you plan to draw a furry animal. Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve created a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw fur, summarized in 9 quick and easy steps.
Plus, each instruction comes with an illustration to make the process easier to follow! Have fun drawing realistic fur! You can draw many more characters like how to draw batman, Anubis drawing, cat drawing, cobra drawing, blueberry drawing, coconut drawing and many more drawing for kids.
Next, draw an upward curve from the bottom end of the line we just drew. When drawn correctly, the figure should look like a spiky lock of hair. This creates the top layer of skin on the left side.
Duplicate the previous action on the opposite side to pull a similar formation. This forms a layer of fur on the right side, creating the top of the fur. Don’t worry if the first layer of hair on both sides is completely different! Skins don’t have to be uniform as long as they follow the same structure. The bumpier the skins, the more realistic they look.
Draw another tuft of spiky fur just below the first one we drew. This creates the second layer of hair on the left side. Please note that the fur layers should be directly connected. Sometimes they may overlap, but that’s okay.
Draw a slightly curved line from the end point of the fur we drew in the previous step. This forms half of the last layer of hair on the left side, which we will finish in the next step.
Draw another curved line connected to the line we drew earlier. This should form a V-shaped figure, creating the last layer of hair on the left side. At this point, the skin should now be half finished because its left side is complete.
Draw a short downward line, starting from the endpoint of the fur that we drew earlier. Remember that this line should be the fur we drew in the previous step.
Moving to the right, draw a curved line with its tip directly connected to the short line we drew in the last step. This forms the bottom layer of skin on the right side. Now we will work upwards to complete the fur structure.
Draw a short, curved line down from the front end of the fur we drew earlier. Remember that this line should be half an inch, as shown in the illustration above.
Draw a curved line upwards from the end point of the line we drew in the previous step. This line should connect to the end point of the top four and finally complete the shape of the fur. As you can see, the skin is finally complete. Now all that’s missing is a touch of color to make it colorful! Voila, you have successfully drawn realistic fur! That means it’s finally time to move on to the most exciting part: choosing the colors and dyeing the fur!
Fur is available in a wide range of colors, its color mainly depending on the type of animal it is attached to. Therefore, you have complete freedom in the colors to use! Sense free to use any shade you like. You can even use a light color combined with a darker color to create the illusion of shadow! Have fun playing with colors, and watch the fur come to life!
