I'm trying to add a gradient to the fur here that starts in the head and extends into the fur. The fur is a different layer though so obviously the gradient doesn't apply to that part as well. the highlight is also a diff layer. I also want to keep the black stroke as it is, coming inside the head a little bit. Whats the best way to have the inner gradient extend into the fur and what would be the best way to create this sort of image from scratch to make this process easier on me in the future? thanks guys!
