Gribby's super-thorough Hair Tutorial3 by Deskleaves Gribby's super-thorough Hair Tutorial3 by Deskleaves
This section contains dreadlocks, braids, cornrows, and some stuff about fur and how to apply it. The fur section needs to be expanded on, especially the mixing fur/hair where Ann Thro is concerned, and how fur reacts to clothing and other such guff.

If you redistribute, please link back to my home page. Enjoy, and don't let me forget to continue the fur for you.


If this tutorial really helped you, please donate 1.00 to my paypal at detroitbuucity@hotmail.com. It really adds up, and I'm struggling financially. It'd be nice to have electricity.

Insanely useful when trying to draw hair of any sort, especially with the fur kind. And I thought drawing Fluffle Puff ponies was hard!

Hair is one of my favorite things to draw, but it's also really tedious. All those lines... ALL. O___O

Do you have any tips or pointers on Adopts

Hmmm. Yes~

-Never just recolor the same lineart over and over again. Instead, sketch a few poses and feel free to copy and paste them, but draw each design differently over the sketch. Nobody likes recolors. I did my wolfdeer in this way. All of them use the same sketch, but they all look very different.

-You'll have better luck selling for points, if you can use them. 90% of the people who want to buy my adopts don't, because they can't pay cash and I don't accept points.

-Create your own unique creatures! There are already so many cats, dogs and wolves out there, and they're not hard to come up with new colors for. Anatomy is different: If you invent your own creatures, people will be more compelled to buy them because it's something they weren't able to come up with on their own.

-Don't spam the same deviation of adopts over and over again. You will lose watchers. Instead, if some adopts you have are still up for sale after a long time, redraw a new picture of it in a different pose. This gives you practice drawing, provides an updated (probably even more skillful) drawing of the adopt, and is more refreshing to your watchers to be reminded of your adopt with brand new art of the same creature, instead of a repost.

-If you don't have any success selling a design after a month, lower it to half price. If another month goes by and you still haven't managed to sell the adopt, hold a draw-to-adopt contest, trade it for another adoptable you'd like to have, or give it away to the first person that wants to grab it. You'll make your watchers happier this way.

Thanks, I already started making my own animal, ist a compound of, a panther, zebra, lion, and turtle. What would be a good price for the first, would five be good?

I'd try it, and if it didn't sell in a week, lower it to half.
