Ghosting for texture and fur?

I am now on lesson 5 and asking myself If I need to ghost the fur lines (I draw each line separate, not zigzagging).

Thank you.

No, generally speaking you don't need to ghost for fur in most cases, unless you're dealing with longer, more flowing marks. As with whether or not you draw from the shoulder, it depends very much on the nature of the mark. Most texture is made up of tight, stiff and precise marks, but in the cases where it requires more flow and fluidity, then the shoulder/ghosting becomes more important.

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
