There's always DeviantART's tutorial section. You may have to hunt around to find something that clicks, but there's ALOT of good tutorials.

Another good thing to do would be to ask for redlines or join a drawing forum like ArtSpots/Jaxpad's forums or, if you're up for heavy and upfront constructive criticism,  ConceptArt's critique forum.

I don't know of really any other furry how-to-draw sites, aside from DrawFurry, though. But, honestly, you're better off learning to draw human anatomy first, and then modifying it from there.

If you're looking for face and body expression tutorials, you should definitely take a look at John Kricfalusi and Preston Blair's lessons.

There's also the tutorial in my signature.  (I really should start working on it again...)

And yes, crits and redlines!  Very important. '<img'>  (Perhaps you can post some finished work in the Artwork Announcements forum and ask for one.)

That is the most helpful tutorial I've seen.
Thank you!
