Browse Deviantart for examples of different styles of anthros, and determine whether you're leaning towards toonier or more realistic furries. Then, you can base your style around the elements in those drawings. I hope I helped :)

If you can get your hands on this book, it's pretty good. I've flipped through it a couple times.
I think the best way to start drawing anthros is to start by learning how to draw bodies and how to get proportions right. Then you could move on to things like anthro legs and hands.

I'd recommend looking at anatomy, especially the bones. Study how humans and other animals are alike. There are so many similarities in anatomy, it's just some things are a little bigger or smaller on different species.
