I tried to wrap up some of the loose ends. Sorry I did not go into full detail for fur effects, there is just so much variety there that it would be hard to really explain everything. Study some reference photos!
Again, feel free to reference/copy/trace the images in this tutorial for practice if that is helpful to you. Please consult my two earlier Fur Tutorial sections before asking me any further questions! Here is the Eyedropper blending tutorial I mentioned.
The rest of my tutorials and my brush pack are in my Resources gallery.
