Quick tutorial I made to help out :iconhowlsbyabluemoon:.

Basically, it shows where to block in shadows and highlights to
create depth/contrast. From there, I added details to demonstrate
what kind of strokes to use and what direction the fur lies.

If you have any questions, please do ask! I'll try my best to
explain, but sometimes it's easier to show rather than tell.

Next do you think you could maybe do a tutorial on how to draw the outline? XD If you don't feel like it or you don't have time don't worry.

Can't guarantee I'll get to such a tutorial, but it's good for me to know what others would like to be instructed on. :)

The way you draw the guidelines for the facial structure is wonderful and so very helpful! I just sketched a head using your technique and I'm really pleased with it! Thanks for putting this up!
