Penguin problems

Hi Guys, i have two questions.

  1. I want to texture a penguin, the belly is supposed to be a gradient out from white to black, with some yellow in between, but I can’t get that to work with the blend function, quadratic sphere.
  2. I also want to give my penguin fur with the hair particles and i want it to match the matarials from all over the body, so i want the black parts of the penguin to have black fur, the white parts f the penguin to have white fur, and the beak and feet of the penguin to have no fur. How can i achieve this?
    Cheers
