Here’s the cover illustration for Furries Furever, the third and newest title in my Draw Furries how-to book series! For this book, I teamed up with seven really awesome artists to cover a broad variety of styles and techniques.
Each artist was given their own chapter to showcase their art, and talk about their tools and techniques for creating, drawing, and coloring, step-by-step, anthropomorphic characters.
For the cover, I based the characters on designs by each of the artists in the book (reinterpreted in my style). Trying to fit that many characters on the cover was a challenge, but it was so fun to draw everyone’s characters. From front to back:
Rodent: Tyson Tan
Seal: Lindsay Cibos (me!)
Tiger: Kathryn Layno
Interesting tidbit about the cover art - it’s the first large illustration I tackled from start to finish on my Cintiq Companion. I used to do line art traditionally with pencil, but this was drawn entirely in Clip Paint Studio (and colored in Adobe Photoshop CS3).
So, to summarize, Furries Furever book! Available for preorder!
