Not only are the workshop now available for registering, but we have an exercise results post that is now ready to check out! I included a step by step on how I went about treating each from the first outline to the final polish, hope they help out!
- Fur: Deer, Dog – For fur, I found that using the Concept Cookie hair brush was the best choice for getting that same level of quality that fur has.
- Scales: Aligator Claw, Talon, and Duck – BE PATIENT. These are time consuming to create that organic look, but take your time.
- Smooth: Frog, Crab – This is all about blending and keeping it smooth. The highlights also have to be placed carefully.
- Rough: The Hand and Elephant – The subtle irregularities and wrinkles are your focus here. Study how the skin folds on itself and how it absorbs lighting.

When I try to use secondary colors on paws by using lighter colors, it comes out all "wet" looking, and then the next steps just make it look really odd. How do I fix this?

The "outline" layer is usually its own line art layer that is just hidden. That or sometimes Clean up with the background color on top of all the layers is done on layer.

Instead of removing the outline entirely, try to do the drawing with the outline at a lower opacity. This way you can see what you're doing under the lines as well as in between them (:
