From experience, as i painted the shaman not long ago, I would say if you are doing the fur with the drybrushing technique, go ahead and do most of that first. This would accomplish two things. One, minimize on spill over and touch up, and two, give you an idea how to do the rest of it. The first time i did mine, I did it the other way around, and then realized how much the fur blended into every other color i had chosen, since there is alot of fur showing. Hope that helps a little.

As far as the paint job so far, it looks to be coming along nicely. Nice grey coat. Definitely needs more highlights, but I think it will come together much better once more is done.

I like the color choices thus far. The fur (at least on my monitor has more of a bluish tinge to it, which contrasts nicely with the browns of the leathers and loincloths. I think you could be more judicious with your placement of highlights--the near-white is great, but I would reserve it for the upper parts of the ears, top of the muzzle, tip of the tail, and ends of the facial fur. Go back over it with your thinned down base color. I would then "shade" the fur with a darker blue on the bottom side of the muzzle, on the bottom of the forearms, and the legs below the knees. Your deep shading (which looks black to me) is fine.
The armor is undercoated perfectly. Begin painting on your dark metallics or dark gray depending on whether you are going NMM or metallic. Leave a very thin line of black there for the deep recesses.
The leathers and loincloth looks good, although I can still see some brushstrokes, so I would try and go back over those areas again to get a better basecoat. Darkline those areas with either very dark brown (brown liner works great) or black. Since they are fairly similar in color, you need to try and get some contrast in there to separate the two.
I hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing the next step!

Light primer coat helps to brighten the colors put on top of it.
Dark primers help to darken (or suck the life out of...) colors put on it.
I almost always primer white and then black out armor and weapons.
