Hey, I've been watching a bunch of your tutorials (most several times over) and I have to say, they are helpful. But there is a major problem I've got and I was really hoping if you'd be able to assist me. I'm trying to go for a medium, wavy fur look for the mane on this character, but I'm really struggling. If you have any tips or advice, I'd be extremely grateful. It's getting to a point where it's actually aggravating...

Glad you like the videos! I appreciate it :>  That drawing is looking amazing so far!  For the fur, just think of each cluster as a small group.  You have the base shading down.  Just color sample within each region/group and sort of render out the edges and folds.  Add some loose strands for a bit more detail along the edges.  It's looking great so far!
