I really hope this helps some of your artists out there. I know my poses aren't the best, but I've gotten a lot of requests for a tutorial, so here it is! =)

More detailed explanation ;;

#1 ;; First, on layer one, draw a sketch.
#2 ;; Making a second layer, line your sketch. I usually use a 3-4px.
#3 ;; On the line layer, use the magic wand tool to select in the pose.
#4 ;; You'll notice small white spots. Use the selection tool to fill them in.
#5 ;; Make a new layer under the lines, with it still selected, fill it in white. After that, clear the selection.
#6 ;; Make a new layer above that, make sure it has clipping group. Fill it in with a DARK colour, then adjust the opacity, so you can see the shading better.
#7 ;; Use the eraser, and erase where the light would hit.
#8 ;; Make a new layer ABOVE that layer, make sure it also has clipping group. Use the marker tool, and make fur shading. Feel free to use various sizes.
#9 ;; MAKE SURE YOU MERGE THE MARKER SHADING DOWN TO THE OTHER SHADING LAYER! After, make the layer invisible by clicking the eye.
#10 ;; Make a new layer about the white base layer, and make it clipping group. This is where you'll colour.
#11 ;; After colouring, make the shading layer visible again, and set it to Shade. Fool around with the opacity, and hue until it suits the character's markings.
#12 ;; Save it as each pixel has opacity, and open it in another program such a Photoshop.
#13 ;; Crop is, re-size it, and there you have it! =D


I really hope this helps you guys out. It's a simple, and quick tutorial. Keep in mind it's also my first one! =P
