Step 1

Hello! :D Thank you for taking time to load this pointless tutorial. Now, you are my minion, do what I say.

Click on the fill tool, transparency 100. Select a bright color.

Congratulations! You just selected a color. Good job. Now put on your yoga outfits and get ready for a workout!

Today in arobics class we will exersize our hands and fingers!


Step 2

Now practice filling the entire screen your bright color. If you don't get the whole screen first try, try again!

Thats why RMD arobics class is here. To help you!

Make sure all the edges are filled. When you're done it should look somewhat like it does on the screen.

Practice filling in white and your color using your tablet/mouse/laptop pad. When you have it perfect, drag your weary eyes to the next step.



Step 3

Okay, now make a headish shape. Doesn't need to be perfect.
For the head use your awesome filltool skills. See if you can make your head without letting go on the mouse/tablet/laptop pad.

Great! I bet it looks good if I could see it!

If you're still having troubles with the head shape, make sure the bottom is pointed and the top is round.

If it looks like the example, it's wrong. The head top shouldn't be so far up.


Step 4

Now we shall practice making hair shapes.

To get the best results possible, You don't need to keep holding onto whatever you draw with. Drawing hair in one stroke is kinda hard.

Don't worry about your hair color. I'm erasing mine.


Step 5

Now, we're going to practice filling in shapes. Set your transparency from 20-33 and trace your fill tool over your shape.

Do a couple layers first.
The suggested shape for this tutorial is a furry animal such as cats, ferrets, hamsters, bunnies etc.

Mine's a demented cat.



Step 6

Now, leave your transparency the same or go a little lower and use quick strokes to make a furryish object seem furrier.

Beautiful. Mine is unfinished.

Don't spend too much time on this, it's just another practice.


Step 7

Okay, I got really lazy on this and didn't finish, and I highly reccommend you don't copy this.

Finish your furring and retrace the outlines and add the eyes.

Now trim the color that went over the edges before. And erase it. (Unless you worked really hard and wanna submit)


Step 8

Now we're going to practice MY style... filling in the color first and then adding outlines.

Fill in your color, 100 transparency.
Make it beautiful.


Step 9

Now select a color just below the color you used for the body.

Use free-line.

Be fancy about it- I don't want people thinking my tutorial doesn't work.

Make it look furry, kay?
It's tail looks like a christmas tree.
That's just as well...


Step 10

Now add eyes, use your own style. I don't want you stealing mine. (You can, it's not copyrighted, you just need to figure it out.)

Add your mouth.
And you're finished!

Congratulations! This is your first step to becoming a fill tool extraordinare.

Thank you for reading this tutorial! There will be more mediocre tutorials in the future.
