Then this is the tutorial:

1. Choose a color.

2. Pick the PaintbrushTool ( :PaintBrushTool: ) and increas the width to something around 85 px. Remember that it has to be AntiAliasing Disabled ( :AntiAliasingOff: )

3. Draw a form on the paper. I will call this shape for a bean.

Do as the picture says; Zoom: 2.61x - Pan: Drag it so it shows the whole picture...

7. Deselect the bean and go to Effects > Distort > Smudge.

Brush width: 45

Strenght: Something around 7%

8. (Fun part..) Now start dragging some fur to your monster.

9. When you are done it should look something like this:

8. Now you have to draw eyes. Make a new layer ( :AddNewLayer: ).

9. Choose the color white. Then choose the paintbrushtool ( :PaintBrushTool: ), Set the width to 50px and :AntiAliasingOn:

10. Then draw two circles beside eachother.

It's great that someone made a tutorial showing this neat trick! :D

In fact I'm very familiar with this technique.

I've shared it earlier in the forum, but didn't care to make a tutorial for it...

From my experience this brush tend to give a better result. :wink:

Amazing! At first I thought this tut would just be adding eyes to them, but then I realized that its the whole thing! It really helps with the basics of smudging, thank you!

P.S. Although try to work on the eyes, not that i dont like them.

Wow! awesome tutorial.

How did you make the eyes get partly covered by the fur? i've tried many times but it looked really weird.

Oh, sorry. Will remember it next time. Thanks anyway ^^

I did the eyes very easy on the tut. Maybe I'll make them better some other time.

I REALLY like the outcome.

Good to hear :)

Not to make the tut to long I dropped that because i didn't think it was to important... Will update the main post soon.

Can you add a link for the required plug-in please?

Of course ;)LINK

Try cutting the eye holes before step seven, like sarkut said, then place the eyes on a layer below that.

That's what I did... :roll:

Here's my new results!

And tried to add "real" eyes.
