Shading white fur?

So I am finally able to start on my Fawna kit. I want to do some painted white fur on her. I feel like on a different color fur you could just make darker shades to do highlighting. What could I do with white? I don’t want it to just be solid and look like skin and not fur

You could do lowlights and do off white and or light grays to show separation and depth. That’s what I did on my pig…and I looked at my actual pig to see how his white hair looked…


Use a darker color in the back, light blond, sienna, light gray…then white, off white or titan buff on top to create depth. Do short strokes, keep the same direction (like rooting). Doing a mapping can help with that.

That’s kind of what I was thinking too. If you don’t want to go with blonde shades, gray with your white is probably your best bet.

Or just go sparse enough that you let skin show through?

Thanks everyone!!
