No, generally speaking you don't need to ghost for fur in most cases, unless you're dealing with longer, more flowing marks. As with whether or not you draw from the shoulder, it depends very much on the nature of the mark. Most texture is made up of tight, stiff and precise marks, but in the cases where it requires more flow and fluidity, then the shoulder/ghosting becomes more important.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
