Week 7 | Feb 8-14
This week we are diving deep into drawing furry animals! Drawing fur can seem daunting, difficult, and time-consuming. A few weeks ago, I avoided drawing furry creatures because it seemed like so much work! So I took some time to teach myself how to do it and discovered a demystifying method that I’m sharing with you! I even developed a set of custom fur brushes for Procreate that I’m giving away for FREE. (more on that in a minute!)
Skillshare is a fantastic platform that will allow me to bring you more in-depth lessons where I can really explore a topic and teach fun new skills! The platform allows me to break the lessons down into bite-sized chunks, deliver additional resources like .Procreate files, and you can also discuss, ask questions, and share your work from the tutorials directly on the lesson page.
There are a lot of amazing features that make it a great place to learn. I’ve poured a ton of love and energy into this class, and I can’t wait to share it with you. I’m so excited to be joining the Skillshare fam!
If you are new to Skillshare, you can get two weeks free on me.
Introducing a brand-new Bardot Brush set: Fur & Fluff!
This set has a total of 17 brushes that will allow you to create 5 unique fur textures, and it includes two tools for making shapes and shadows. I created these brushes specifically to make the fur drawing process MUCH easier and super fun!
Week 7: Furry Animals
For week six, we have a handful of furry and fluffy animals that will help you sharpen (or maybe fluff-ify) your fur drawing skills. Remember the process you learned last week about breaking down the animal’s body into basic shapes. Alternatively, you can spend each prompt creating a texture study of how to depict that animal’s fur. As always, you can interpret the prompt however you’d like! I cannot wait to see your furry animals!
Have you ever wanted to draw a furry animal but quickly gave up when you thought about drawing ALL THOSE HAIRS? I don’t blame you. But I’m here to help you see that drawing fur does not have to be difficult or time-consuming. In this class, I’ll show you how using specialized brushes can speed up the process of drawing fur immensely. In just a few minutes, you’ll be able to create a furry illustration that looks like it took you forever.
(its a .Procreate file, so you can keep track of your progress right in Procreate!)
You’ll find instructions about how to use the Tracker at the link above. I even made you a star stamp brush for you to use! It’s my Procreate version of a gold star sticker.
We’ve got a Facebook group just for participants of Making Art Everyday and all things Bardot Brush! Come join our group of supportive artists of all skill levels, share your work, ask questions, and be a part of the community!
