Tutorial - shading of a sculpted paw


Here i show you how i shade my paws.

I use oil paint and a brush where i cut the hair short.
Press a little bit of paint on a paper, put a little bit on the brush.
You can see how much you need to shade lightly.
Try on the paper first, it is very little colour you need to archive the effect.


I start with pressing some paint right in between the toes - on the base of the toes


The same i do on the top of the toes


connect the dots with very little colour, you always can add more, but you cant remove it.


shade the intention of the sole, and around the edges of the foot.
shade a little bit into the hair and into the sole.


Here you can see my finished foot and the one not shaded.
