The Jungle Tiger

Learn many different ways to paint Wildlife

Beginner to Advanced level

Did you know that Animals were the first subject painted by the humans?

The Animals provided many vital things to the earliest man so they learned to know these creature very well in order to survive. The wildlife provided the humans of food first of all, clothing, oils and much more..

Painting fur can be an enormous challenge for those that like to paint wildlife, especially with an airbrush.

There isn’t just one way to paint fur, not even 2 ways, but many ways that lead to Rome! Some are more technical, some are just plain fun and some are just way too clean to be convincing as being “wild” regarding the wild in wildlife, but can be used to specify certain areas. So how does that work? I mean, everyone can pull out a few lines with an airbrush or brush, but HOW does it become real fur?

The trick is in a combinations of layers, values, variety and observation.

With proper guidance we make sure everyone can follow, no matter the level you are at. We are not saying it’s easy, but with the right information, guidance and practice you can get great results incredibly fast.
