Because I believe in sharing knowledge. 
I am not too great with hyperlinking etc, so please go to the URL below to see the full photo-set and tutorial on Imgur.

LOL yay!!!! god I know right? Everybody's got an airbrush it seems. I like the way acrylics are blendable once you get it on the fur

Tard OMG Emote EXACTLY!!! i mean it's great if that's what works for you <.< but gosh the price and maintenance!!!
 :) whatever i can't get with piecing different colour furs next to each other gets acrylic sprayed/ brushed and it works just fine for me O.o i just can't imagine airbrushing being all that much better!

Very informative. But I'm surprised this didn't share many techniques that are used in making fursuits.

It's mostly self-discovered. What kind of techniques were left out that you expected to see? I'm curious

Fursuiters build mostly out of upholstery foam, since it can be cut and glued without any compromise to it's properties. It may not be as cheap as that quilting material you used, but you have more control over the shape. Even the heads are built out of upholstery foam, and the eyes, mouth, ears, and nose are just built separately and installed. 

I was surprised adding the fur is different too. Since all of your crafts are unique, you should seriously consider this one: The entire form is covered in masking tape, labeled, and cut out as darts. Then you take the tape you cut out and lay it over the fur (making sure you're cutting it out in the right direction) and then cut out the fur. It works every time, no matter the form.

That's all I can think of right now, but you should consider looking into the comunity. It may help you more than you think.

Brilliant! Love the patterning techniques! I usually work by eye but I tend to cut too big sometimes and waste material.

I'm definately going to check out the fursuit scene more, I have seen some good tutorials on resin casting by fursuiters.

Good stuff thanks
