It's very hard because you'd have to render it first, assuming that you want it to be maximum quality.
I could do a video tutorial on rendering furred animals if you'd want to. The small step from that towards recolorization shouldn't be a problem for you I guess.

Oh, this isn't what she meant, I don't think. Rendering is the easy part. What she wanted to know was how to recolor the fur from white to black so it looks naturally black and... well... recolored. I think it was the fur and black that might have proved some confusion. The tutorial was great, though, and should be useful to many GIMP users. :3

Lol :D
Rendering is the easy part, recoloring hard? :o
I think you got something wrong there :D
Recoloring is simply duplicate the layer, go Colors -> Colorize on the top one, se the layer mode to Color or something similar, and erase the parts you don't want to have colorized. Rendering fur on the other hand is nearly impossible with a normal rendering method. That's why you need some tricks.

@Baum, That would make it a color but they want black. So I suggest you invert the colours of the white fur and then pla around with the right layer mode and opacity. :)

Ill try that. :3 Ive tried a lot of way to make the fur black but it never comes out right, it always looks grey or just really desaturated.

Ah, so you want to know the colorization, too? That shouldn't be a problem either :P I'll work on it.

Well, it was mostly the way I described, but here you go:
Attention, big!
Red:

Green:

Black/White mixture:
Spoiler: show

Black (the hardest one to archieve):
Spoiler: show
Image



These are all done in some minutes, so the quality lacks, but well, you get the point ;D

To archieve the effect for any color (green red and so on), just ...
-Duplicate your animal/fur you just rendered with my aweseome tutorial, and on the top one go "Colors -> Colorize".
-Set the values to your desired color and click okay.
-In the layers menu, set the layer mode to "Color".
-Lower the opacity of the top layer as much as you want to.
-Take the eraser tool and erase some parts that don't fit (e.g. eyes and so on).

For black, this method didn't work for me, so I just went...
-Duplicating the rendered image..
-"Colors -> Brightness and Contrast".
-Tone the brightness all the way down and the contrast up to around 20 (depending on your image you might have to change this value) and click okay.
-Set the layer mode to "Multiply" or "Hue" and play around with the opacity of the layer.
-Erase some parts that don't fit.


That's the way I did this. I hope this helped, and otherwise you can just spam questions ;)
